Knowledge is defined asexpertise, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject, what is known in a particular field or in total; facts and information or awareness or familiarity gained by experience of a fact or situation. Knowledge is infinite. There are different kinds of knowledge, communicating knowledge, situated knowledge, practical knowledge, biological meaning of knowledge and religious meaning of knowledge. All these different leagues of knowledge are very different but very close to each other at the same time.
Such as, how would you link communicating knowledge and situated knowledge together, situated knowledge is knowledge specific to a particular situation, and communicating knowledge is used to indicate a meaning and can be thought of as a dynamic process, in order to this, the communicating knowledge must be suited to the situation. To be more specific as an example, if one is being told about a book, we would know that the book is in space, and that the book is 3D by its’ situation , and we are using this piece of knowledge by transferring the knowledge by communication.
This is the logical way of linking knowledge together. However that communication and situation are two different leagues of knowledge and is hard to compare and compose together directly, once it takes form as a category of knowledge they can be related together. As we have been told, life started on this world as a single cell, and through years of change, life has taken form in very different ways, but the core of all beings are all the same and we are all linked together by our roots of life. Next I am going to try to prove that knowledge is linked together by its roots too.
Our intelligence is our ability to recall and learn from the past, perceive and assess the unique circumstances of the present moment, imagine and predict likely futures and then act on the results of our forecasts to promote our survival and well being. True intelligence is inherently pro-survival and pro-human. The first signs of intelligence on this planet date back to 200,000 years ago, where studies of molecular biology give evidence that the approximate time of divergence from the common ancestor of all modern human populations, and it is from when signs of human intelligence had started.
Apart from the knowledge that our ancestors were born with and the basic knowledge that we have to have to survive, we are different from animals by these pieces of knowledge developed through thousands of years. The first great knowledge that separates us from animals is communication, the homo sapiens which are the first stage of humankind, lived in groups, so they needed to have the ability for some complex communication to live together.
The second is the ability to adapt the environment using knowledge, once the homos left the protection of the forest to live on land they needed new ways of living, so they developed the knowledge of agriculture and arcitecture. And then the pattern continues, life changes for them so they need to develop to survive. Forming new pieces of knowledge is crucial for them to survive so knowledge is linked together by its purpose. But this point can be challenged by religions and belief.
Science has solved many of the world’s wonders, but there are still things that science can not explain, so we have a reason not to rely on science. For example, Christianity is a religion that we are most familier with, and the main point the Bible is trying to make is worship virtue and disdain all sins. But the use of knowledge in this circumstance is also because of its purpose, to teach people how to behave and make the society a more peaceful place. Either if it comes from a scientific point of view or a religious view, knowledge is linked together by its purpose.
