20 Mar knowledge
Could it be something we have in our brain that we can remember later: something tactile like the rough of a rock or the give of a liquid? Perhaps it’s visual like the cone of a volcano or the bud of a leaf? Maybe knowledge goes beyond remembered sensory experience to the abstract and symbolic. For instance, we learn that c follows b’s preceded by a. Then we associate these letters with sounds and words and use words to describe our world. In data theory, knowledge is compound data that is independently meaningful.
