We all live at a very interesting time when pseudo-scientific modern conceptions cannot
conceal the ignorance hidden behind them. What ignorance, – someone may exclaim surprisingly, – it is impossible to talk
about any kind of ignorance when our world is practically "overloaded" with the information of new discoveries, phenomena,
hypotheses and theories and their practical realization.
First of all, let us define, what the terms "information" and "knowledge" mean. A lot of people believe there is no difference
between them. Apparent likeness of these two concepts may delude, but if we take a little time to think about these two words,
as well as many other words used daily, we will be amazed. We forget that each word has its own distinct meaning as well as
its own sound. Here is the meaning of the words: "information" and "knowledge".
Information is a message about events happening around and inside us received through the organs of sense.
Knowledge is a reflection and understanding of events happening around and inside us.
At first sight this distinction may seem insignificant. In fact, these two concepts differ remarkably from each other.
Knowledge is information about events happening around and inside us, received through our sense organs, meditated on and
finally comprehended. Unfortunately, our modern terrestrial civilization has accumulated a great deal of information about
events happening around and inside us; however, understanding of this information is practically nonexistent.
