What is the opposite of knowing

Ulrich H. Rose from November 1st, 2011:

The rather pleasant opposite of a wise person is a stupid * person
- the unpleasant opposite is a clever = knowledge-laden person.

* stupid is only meant provocatively here

The opposite of wise is knowledge.

With a high degree of probability it can be ruled out that a wise man has anything to do with knowledge - because "the knowledge" in a brain is mainly a result of learning and training in "foreign knowledge". This "foreign knowledge", if it was not filtered into the brain by thinking when it was deposited, this foreign knowledge can contain errors. Whoever stores this "foreign knowledge" unfiltered in his brain will become a knowledge reproducer and not a wise man when reproducing this knowledge. Anyone who has "foreign knowledge" stored unfiltered in his brain is in the same situation as a believer: He believes he knows that the knowledge he has learned - by whoever invented it - is correct.

Whoever filters "foreign knowledge" through theKen is stored in his brain, the cann become wise. The path to the wise is a very special one, it is also a lonely path, as hardly anyone can walk it. As a result, there can be no directions to wisdom. Not by the wise, since this could well describe the way, only this way most likely cannot be understood, since then the listener must be assumed to be believing. Such directions are most likely beyond the listener's horizon. As a result, a wise man would not go this way of describing, since it makes no sense.
Also not from a hypothetical companion of a wise man, since this one a person's path - to wisdom - in its complexity over many decades can hardly have called and b. if so, this path would have to be consciously recorded and c. an understanding of this path would have to result, which d. is then hardly reproducible. See "Perfect Concepts" to better understand this sentence.

The validity of knowledge is limited by the social framework and a “specific historical period” in which knowledge “can claim a knowledge status”.

Ulrich H. Rose:
Knowledge is learned.
What has been learned comes from what has been viewed, heard, read and believed - gushing out of a seemingly endless chain of generations.
All this what is looked at, heard, read and believed - passed on over generations is strongly dependent on the first impression - on the first thought at the beginning of the chain (whether it is correctly or incorrectly grasped / thought is irrelevant) and on the subsequent interpretations and possibly also falsifications, who has suffered this basic thought.

For philosophers and well-informed: see my thoughts on interpretations and hermeneutics (No. 144)

Who really knows, went inside and thought clearly and unadulterated and uninfluenced.

Unfortunately, only a few people are able to master "clear and unadulterated thinking".
Every 250th person can think. Think clearly and unadulterated that even fewer people can do that.

Confucius expressed this connection best:

Knowing what you know and knowing what you are doing is knowing.

My sentence would be: to know what you know and to know what you are doing, that's denKen. CLOCK from 07/10/2018

One more thought on this:

People at the beginning of the 21st century have so much knowledge in their heads
that they no longer have enough space in their heads for very important things,
like having love, honesty and gratitude.

The opposite of wise is knowledge.

The opposite of wise is knowledge. That rather ... The opposite of wise is knowledge, the rather pleasant opposite of a wise person is a stupid person, the unpleasant opposite is a clever, knowledge-laden person. Comment by Ulrich H. Rose from February 26th, 2010 and March 25th, 2010


Knowledge helps you move forward ...

Quote from Ulrich H. Rose about knowledge Knowledge helps to get ahead, but not to get there. CLOCK from 12/13/2012


If our intellectuals only vaguely ... If our intellectuals were only vaguely aware of how little or not they are aware, then there would be a legitimate hope for a better world. Ulrich H. Rose from April 28, 2015


Some people are so intellectual ... Some people are so intellectual that they are so smart that they fail to realize how limited they actually are. If you don't want to understand that, read the book "Fast Thinking, Slow Thinking" by Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize in Economics. After that, my saying about intellectuals will appear moderate to you. If that's not enough, read up on: "The blind spot when thinking" by Ulrich H. Rose from November 8th, 2015


From thinking to wisdom

From Faith to Thought to Wisdom ... From faith to thinking, intelligence and understanding to consciousness, reason love and happiness to knowledge to wisdom. Ulrich H. Rose from March 18, 2017. One in 250 can think. One in 100,000 gets to intelligence. One in 120,000 comes to their senses. One in 200,000 becomes conscious. One in 500,000 comes to love. One in 20 million can think up NEW = produce knowledge. One in 500,000,000 gets to the truth. One in 4 billion comes to wisdom, so hardly anyone on this planet earth. Ulrich H. Rose from July 10, 2017
