Mortal, Earthly Distinctions:
Knowledge comes from thinking,
thinking from words;
understanding comes from a consciousness
not dependent on thinking and words.
Yes, I know, any rational creature easily perceives the absurdity of the idea of an intellectual activity that is not verbal. But, I can make it even worse by adding the proposition that all routine thinking is a form of criticism, and thus this non-verbal form of consciousness to which I refer, would operate beyond any realm of subjective comment, or trashing of life – and that, (to everyday minds), is even spookier! Knowledge comes from thinking, which comes from words. True understanding arises from a new consciousness not based on talk – but on independent experience.
