I do not think I know something that others do not. Other people know more, they just do not know it yet.
Recently I was asked a question:
- Are you always sure that you are right about everything?
Unfortunately no. Only when I am silent. Silence does not require an answer. Silence does not raise a question.
Sometimes they ask the following question:
- Why are you sure you know this?
How to answer this question? It would be strange if I did not know, and yet I was not sure about it. Confidence is knowledge! And to be confident in your knowledge is an experience.
Many know that 2x2 = 4, many are sure that 2x2 = 4, but only a few understand why 4. This is the experience.
If we talk about knowledge and rightness, then people who speak with phrases like "it seems to me", "possibly", "maybe", "I suppose" ... always, and so on, always bothered me. Conversations with such people of knowledge will not bring, some interjections like: but, well, er ... yes no ...
Speaking of the truth, I remember the kings, under which there was always a fool or a fool. Only they were allowed to say everything they had in mind. And they were telling the truth! The king or king should have known the truth, because the rest could only be flattery or servility. For the rest, however, a holy fool or a fool was the fun of the king.
Maybe that's why right now or truth is perceived so irreconcilably, the legacy of the past? Is there any kind of buffoonery in this, so that we ourselves should not be offended?
Arguing about the knowledge and correctness of knowledge, I come to the conclusion that this is just a fact of this second in time. It's just what I'm talking about right now. But tomorrow will come, which I do not yet know. And, not knowing what will happen tomorrow, can I be right today? Probably not. If I know, then I'm right only in this second of time, while I'm arguing.
And then the expression of the ancients (Socrates, or Democritus) becomes clear: "I know that I do not know anything."
And it is quite clear that "For we know in part, and in part we prophesy; when the perfect comes, then that, in part, will cease. (1 Corp. 13: 8-10). About this time, the apostle says: Now we see through a dull glass, so, then face to face; Now I know in part, and then I will know, just as I am known. (1 Corp. 13: 13).
