Thoughts - November 23

We can often tend to put far too much weight on knowing and being a knower. While this is fitting to some degree, the over-emphasis is a major plague, and expresses itself in several ways including: reductionism, hiddeness, and falsification. Other perspectives are necessary. My proposal, for one of these, is that to have knowledge is to ‘be known.’ Being known carries significant power for knowing and therefore without this ‘knowness’ our knowledge will surely be greatly impoverished. The more one attempts to be a knower with a single focus trajectory of knowing, the further one is away from the actuality of knowledge.
