Working on this week (July 12 to 19)
One thread I've been working on today (and expect to during this week) is writing some ideas on knowledge development - not as a theoretical concept but as a practical process. This is not an area that I have studied, in contrast to many on this site, so don't expect deep insights at the moment.
Let me start with a quote from Arthur C. Clarke (note that I can find this attributed to him all over the place on the internet but haven't yet identified the actual source):
Before you become too entranced with gorgeous gadgets and mesmerizing video displays, let me remind you that information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of the other, and we need them all.
It's a great quote for our day, generally, but it also is consistent with some ideas that have been running through my mind. These are rudimentary at the moment, but this is the list on which I am working. I am thinking about the process of learning, gaining knowledge, becoming wise, etc. I think there are a number of processes that partially overlap but are mostly progressive:
Hopefully, I can make some progress this week at least on what I understand of these concepts.
Let me also say that I believe one of the values of developing a Zettelkasten is to help us progress from one level to another in the above list.
