Unraveling Reality {39} Knowledge

Knowledge

“Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” ~ Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw

We all want to understand how the world works – both for our benefit and entertainment. The severity of inquiry varies vastly among people. Most in the Collective of humanity accept what they are told. Socialization and natural disinclination to academics dulls the desire to delve into the nature of Nature.

“Nature is often hidden.” ~ English scientist Francis Bacon

Only a few seriously seek to uncover Nature’s deepest secrets, heading toward what Aristotle called “final cause,” which is “that sort of end which is not for the sake of something else, but for whose sake everything else is.”

“The naturally proper direction of our road is from things better known and clearer to us, to things that are clearer and better known by Nature.” ~ Aristotle
