Knowledge is knowing the connections between ideas

  • Knowledge is knowing the connections between information
  • Or the connections between myths
  • Knowledge requires more than just books and instruction. It requires experience. It needs the interplay–the back and forth feedback loop–between theory and practice, hypothesis and results, ideas and action. Reading case studies and listening to the latest social media gurus isn’t going to get you very far unless you have something practice the lessons on. Education without experience is masturbation. As the saying goes, non scholae, sed vitae discimus—not for school but for life we learn.
  • Ryan Holiday, Information Vs. Knowledge Vs. Experience
  • In nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it and over it.
  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
