What Exactly Is True Wisdom?
What exactly is true wisdom? In a world of perceptual reality, I think the difference between wisdom and reality is how a person is able to grasp reality and process it.
When we are young and in school, it feels as if knowledge is being crammed into our head at maximum capacity.
In many respects that takes away the joy of learning because it is imposed upon us to memorize as opposed to empirically discover…
But as we get older, certain topics draw our deeper attention and focus. That deeper attention takes us into unique journeys of knowledge and exploration. And in that exploration, we excitedly discover how little we truly know.
If you have ever had the opportunity to descend into a fractal, it is the same pattern repeating itself down word in a progressive cycle that never ends.
I think that is the exciting aspect of knowledge. And going from macro to micro, we are able to descend into ever more granular exploration of a topic. That exploration shows us infinite new pathways we might choose to take in our pursuit of the deeper knowledge on that particular topic. In many respects that becomes almost infinite. And ever more complicated pathway of knowledge paths for our brain to engage. To an enlightened mind, the discovery of all of these new pathways are a great joy because each of them reveal to you yet another opportunity to add to your collective wisdom.
I hope your Thursday brings you new stimulation and joys that you had not anticipated?
