Brain Mind Consiousness Sense Learning

Knowledge is an acquired consciousness of an ever changing process of dynamic Mind that consummates in the awareness of self and of the reality
external to that Mind.

Humans attain knowledge by means of: intuition (instinctively) -- perception (through the senses) inductive reason (cause to effect) -- deductive reason (effect to cause).
Through education, the Mind, not only receives many facts, but is trained
in the methods for acquiring Knowledge.

EMERGENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS

 

Knowledge
Human Pursuit

Human knowledge, multifaceted and diversified, is the familiarity that each person possesses about facts, information, descriptions or skills acquired through experience and education. Knowledge may be practical, implicit as in skills, or theoretical (speculative), as explicit in the understanding of a subject.

Plato defined knowledge as "justified true belief". Truth has been defined as "conformity of the intellect to reality". However, none of these definitions define knowledge; for no person knows precisely what a belief to be;
no person knows precisely what a fact to be; there simply lacks agreement between the understanding of these concepts. As for the conformity of intellect, what is understood in the intellect is different for every person.

The processes of experience demands complex conscious activity incorporating many and varied functional capabilities of the mind. The driving and guiding functionality depends upon the nature of the knowledge to be acquired or dispersed. Functionality calls to mind two types of knowledge — practical knowledge & speculative knowledge.

Practical knowledge is a knowledge that serves the human needs, such as knowledge-how i.e. skills to walk, talk etc., in math, skill to perform addition 2+2=4. Practical knowledge is dependent upon specifics of a situation and is involved in the everyday activity.

Complex Emergence was described in the Philosophical section of this web site. It was pointed out that self-organization at the macro level rises according to a different set of basic rules. Rules that are different than what brings about emergence at the root level.

Emergence of Consciousness conform to the basic characteristics of emergence, that is, a generating procedure is constrained. Macro level emergence comes about when a multiplicity of entities are associated in a pattern that is constrained.(See Complexity)

The brain contains a: 1. Multiplicity of entities - neurons, 2. Connected by synapses, 3. Inter-related- through neurological pathways and
4. is readily adaptable.
 
Speculative knowledge or pure reason is theoretical knowledge utilizing logical, deductive reason. Humans use speculative knowledge the knowledge-that i.e. for decision making, problem solving , etc., in math for understanding that the quantities 2+2=4. Speculative reason is reflective, separated from everyday considerations and capable of being dependent upon.

 

Knowledge

Personification of Knowledge
Celsus Library
Ephesus Turkey

The human quest for knowledge comes instinctively from our very animalistic nature, from an emotional desire to secure our safety and obtain comfort in our happiness. Deep in the darkness of a mother’s womb, during the later stages of gestation, the fetus feels the resonance of the caring mother’s voice that carries it. Through the simplest sensation intuitively the fetus, soon to become baby, bonds.

At birth, through the five senses, the pursuit for knowledge through perception commences . Endowed with two principles, identity (a thing is what it is)
& non-contradiction (the impossibility to affirm or deny the same thing at the same time -- it either is or is-not) enables the bases of all human knowledge.

Through (perceptual) judgment humans know that a thing exists. Through inductive reasoning Humans experience a thing in its act of existence, yet limited in its essence, its form.

Humans accumulate knowledge by Intuition, by perception and remembering, through reasoning and judgment.
