They say, the beginning of knowledge is to know something we do not understand. Khalil Gibran said, perplexity is the sign of knowledge. Both aspects reflect and tell few aspects and feature of what it means by knowledge and knowing, which tell that knowledge is not something that can be picked from department store, it is station and stage of human development in which one reaches after passing certain stages and processes of life in this plane of existence.
Having said this, knowledge as defined before by others, it is broadly classified as subjective and objective knowledge, which indicate that there are certain aspects of knowledge that can be objectified, which is tangible and can be seen outwardly, and there are other aspect of knowledge which is related to subjective reality in which such aspect is related to the knowledge and idea of relativity.
How come a sixty second joy is equal and equivalent to sixty second pain and suffering? Although both are equal in duration, the intensity and the amount of emotion and feeling one faces in both circumstances which is different, the impact they have on health is very different; the influence in one’s thinking is very different. In the sixty second excitement and joy one faces, one could obtain positive results and hopes in life. Whereas in sixty second pain and suffering the reverse could happen. While dwelling in sixty second pain, one could consider those pains as if they are equivalent to year, where as those sixty second excitements could be considered like one’s experience in fraction of microseconds. It is just relative. Time is relative in terms of its consequence here on one’s reality.
While such features o knowledge is going on, as dictionary defines, knowledge means to know, which can be anything. When one considers knowledge as word, it is about knowing, like this knowing can be related to washing of one’ s face after sleep, washing one’s hand before the meal and the like. Where as, when one considers such aspect of knowledge in terms of concept, it is something else. It goes far beyond the knowledge of washing one’s face, or gossips, but this has different shape and reality.
Knowledge of the laws of the universe and the knowledge of where one given person is having glass of beer are very different in terms of nature and character. Both aspects define tell to the personality of such people by their focus and area of interest is, who ever they are and whatever position they have within society. Knowledge is not something that can be certified by ink and paper, but rather it is continuous process and unending journey of human reality in the love and search one has for The Truth.
Knowledge begins with something that looks and seems true, but it has different levels and state and layers of development. Taking good examples of those people who discover and did something in this arena, who find out something like the case of Isaac Newton, it is quite fascinating to see some light on what makes Newton to focus on the finding he came about. The first question he did ask, why did the thing fall on me, why not on others, and what makes that thing fall on me, is the beginning of knowledge and the matter that ignite sort of interest to his thinking and theory to his reality, which humanity is making use of to date.
The beginning stage of such people as perceived by others, what he/she is talking about, they are considered as silly people; abnormal people and the like. They are considered as people who lost their normal consciousness. This is the sign of and manifestation of truth and knowledge in its earliest stage as perceived by other in most rubbish and garbage manner. This is one of the healthiest sign and indication that such people have found out something that most people do not understand. This is nice and healthy.
One of the first steps those people who find out something which most people do not have grasp of it, is to avoid such company and focus on the finding they come about and work harder on such filed they are innovating and searching. As Newton did, they navigate such territory until their last breaths of life until what they find out make sense and can be easily communicable to others. They are the scout. Here needs, tolerance and patience, and in fact, focus is the pivot point o their life. Focus is on one point. On the finding and discovery they come about; hence their role models are the life experience of such people than any other being on the earth, if any.
While such path of the undiscovered territory, knowledge manifests itself in very different manner in which those knowledge that are considered as important in the norm is considered as silly matters by such few people, and are not important and life and death thing, since life in this knowledge of the navigation is very different since the focus and the goal is very different. It is not what other people perceive and think important, but it is the pivot and central point, which is the idea that is crucial. Thus people live in different world although there is one big world in here. What makes people vary here is the value—The Idea.
They commence their life with perplexity and they continue with knowing something that most do not have clue and understand. Then they continue making sense and giving life to the multitude as they continue with their search for truth and knowledge. Thus, life is no easy skill and task in this world. There is great and huge enemy going all over since what they know could have different impact and influence on the life of human society. The network and magnitude of their enemies tell the potency and magnitude of truth and knowledge they come about since such aspects of life in most case are directly proportional and related.
Knowledge here means to know something that is hidden and undiscovered. It is something that most people could understand and live comfortably with, but at some point what they have been dealing could be wrong; and those people who know such thing live in dangerous conditions since they are not liked. The first type is something most people have no clue, and they let others know. The other is something that is considered as true and correct, but could be found out wrong and bad, which others call, the ugly truth. They do not want it even if it is true thing.
WE live in world where both aspects of life is going on hand in hand in which the saying and the claim few people do, the mass is always wrong can be considered as legitimate and true since it is here referred as something useful and truthful due to the fact that most people follow what is on past, and continue with style and fashion and way of life since what they have and do create comfort zone and they feel secured. This does not mean that they know and they are correct, but the reverse could be true and is true.
