Knowledge vs Information
Last edited 11th October 2020Reality Building how we learn Communication Architecture
To be enlightened is to know, in addition, what it is all about: why it is the case, what its connections are with other facts, in what respects it is the same, in what respects it is different, and so forth.To make knowledge practical we must convert it into rules of operation. We must pass from knowing what is the case to knowing what to do about it if we wish to get somewhere.
The difference between knowledge and information is relationships. Any facts which reside outside of a meaningful context or mental model exist solely as information. Information that is hoisted upon mental scaffolding becomes knowledge as the process of incorporating it into your reality necessitates the creation of meaningful relationships between it and the other knowledge which you've acquired.
