in reply to What do you know, and how do you know that you know it?

My approach is to sit back and envision the "knowledge" in terms of "the big picture". Most knowledge applies to solving a specific problem, and the solutions often ignore it's interaction with the "big picture". I often think of the old saying "what does this have to do with the price of tea in China?".

The main question which you must ask yourself, is "what is the big picture" to you? Is it corporate profits, or world economy, or world peace, or even " how does it affect the creation fields in the quantuum foam" ?

So it is up to the observer to know the limits of his "big picture", and to keep in the back of his mind that "there is always something bigger".

I just saw a sig in a post here recently(maybe yours?)......

An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. -- Albert Camus
