What Is Knowledge?


The problem with knowing is that we’ll Assume everything else is like what we knew. But when we’re wrong, we become confused, and Assume new Knowledge, and the cycle goes on and on.

We used to Know that the earth is flat, but that Knowledge was challenged, there was confusion, and we Assume now that the earth is of a spherical nature (oblong to be exact, for now). Who knows somebody would later say that Earth is actually irregular in shape, as atmosphere (air) and water do not count. We would by then Assume that that Knowledge is right, and how foolish are those before who thought the Earth is round.

We used to Know that the earth is the center of the Universe, but that Knowledge was challenged, there was confusion, and we Assume now that the Sun is the center of the solar system. Ironically, the same person who made famous of the round earth Knowledge is also the same person who said we’re at the center of the universe.

So the question is, what is Knowledge? Is it a collection of Assumptions, limited by its demographic nature? Some say that Knowledge is a collection of interweaving Facts, but what exactly are Facts? Isn’t it an agreed upon result of an Observation? And aren’t Observations just Intrepetations of stimulis in our senses?

I hereby declare that I Know for a Fact that I don’t Know anything. When I Assume new Knowledge I’ll inform you.
