The knowledge that they hide from the public eye.

The Teaching of Nothing by Socrates

 
Socrates said he has nothing to teach and that he teaches nothing.
 
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
Socrates
 
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
Socrates 
 
“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”
Socrates  
 
Evaluation process on quotes: what does this mean? What would a person be thinking to be saying this? What is the perception or effect of this perception?
 
Hi. Welcome to not being stupid. You just have to ask questions to evaluate the truth according to Socrates combined with knowledge outlined in my theory on how to accept knowledge by giving it serious consideration.
 
Continued processing: If you think that everything is nothing, what happens? What’s the effect of this? What’s life? Nothing. What’s death? Nothing.
 
And that person went to Harvard.
 
“There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.”

A Model For Trusting People as Sources of Information

 

In order to evaluate a personal source of information with full rationality we must always begin with the consideration of:
Did this person give us a reason to think they are lying?

If you have no reason to believe they are lying, you can continue listening without having a reason to think that the person you are listening to is lying.
Some people may be fools by believing people based on if they like their looks. But my first question when I encounter a new person is "Who are you?"

When you meet a new person
First question for consideration that should arise is "Who are you?"
What we should always know is
"Now that you know more about me, what do you think about me?"
And if I tell you this, then what do you think about me?

Now that I told you enough things that are true, if I tell you this will you believe me?


What do we believe in?
We only believe in things that can be understood with common sense as according to what can possibly exist or be done in the physical realm using our body and resources or what we observe with our own eyesight.

You can always listen with open ears if you can entertain a thought without accepting it at first. You can always listen.

To evaluate the truth we just have to ask questions. If you practice this teaching by Socrates, you can extract the truth.

To practice this, we can always as "What is this?" "And what is that?"
When we hear people say things we can ask "What do they mean by that?" to extract the meaning, with knowledge of metaphors and the ability to say things for the effect that will have on the other person.

We must always ask the question "Why?" about everything.
*This person did that*
But why? Always ask why about everything to understand our reality.
We need to figure out why by looking into the mind of others, by stepping in their shoes. We can do so by considering their lives, as in where they're coming from, combined with knowledge that people can have different ideas about the same things, different interpretations, and can also say things and have a different meaning.

We must always listen to the emotional sound of the voice in order to extract the feeling of the meaning they convey by saying it.

We could be sarcastic by saying "I love you" and convey the opposite meaning, for example.

 If we put all of the above into practice, we can gain a better understanding of the world based on all the information we have been exposed to from news sources combined with information received from other people as our sources.

Medical Doctors Fail To Detect The Devouring Mother Archetype

Doctors don't take any measures to detect the devouring mother archetype of mothers who abuse their children by taking them to the doctor and asking for medications and surgeries that their children don't need in order to enjoy controlling and torturing their child from birth into adulthood and until death using the medical establishment of psychiatry to deny their children their adult independence after childhood. The Devouring Mother Archetype is described as such:

“The Devouring Mother “consumes” her children psychologically and emotionally and often instills in them feelings of guilt at leaving her or becoming independent.”

Due to the lack of attention paid to this issue, doctors fail to detect the devouring mother archetype and allow mothers and parents of children to abuse their children into adulthood, from birth until death. These victims never get to leave their parents after 18 years old and never get to see a day of adult independence from their parents. The Devouring Mother Archetype is also known as the mother in Munchausen by proxy.

What is Munchausen by proxy?

According to the current practice of psychiatry, Munchausen by proxy is defined as follows

"Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSBP) is a mental health problem in which a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care, such as a child, an elderly adult, or a person who has a disability. Because vulnerable people are the victims, MSBP is a form of child abuse or elder abuse."

Regulations that are specified in the first textbook on psychiatry from 1812 are not being met today.


In this excerpt from the first textbook on psychiatry "Observations and Inquiries into the Diseases of the Mind" by Benjamin Rush, it is recorded that "Madness can be induced by the cruel and unjust conduct of others such as school masters and guardians to the persons who are the subject of their power" and he then asserts the declaration that these occurrences are to be met with in the records of medicine. These occurrences are currently not being met with in the records of modern medicine and we can see that with the lack of training and attention paid to knowledge of Munchausen by proxy, the fabrication of symptoms used in cases of child abuse, and the devouring mother. Education on this subject is being limited as well as suppressed in mainstream education and higher educational institutes. This is most likely because current doctors want to protect their licenses and would rather not think about all the parents that abuse their children by fabricating symptoms and taking them to the doctor, thereby torturing their children to death and getting away with it, undetected.
 
The current failure of medical doctors to detect the devouring mother archetype results in the following news headlines:
Doctors need to start taking measures to detect the devouring mother archetype and follow regulations set forth by the first textbook of psychiatry in order to save countless lives.

The Lobotomy Procedure Trampled on Patient's Rights

The procedure of the lobotomy, which is a surgical procedure in which the nerve pathways in a lobe or lobes of the brain are severed, took lives and trampled on patient's rights. This procedure was performed in the medical practice for decades during the 1940's and 1950's.

"A lobotomy, or leucotomy, is a form of psychosurgery, a neurosurgical treatment of a mental disorder that involves severing connections in the brain's prefrontal cortex. Most of the connections to and from the prefrontal cortex, the anterior part of the frontal lobes of the brain, are severed. It was used for treating mental disorders and occasionally other conditions as a mainstream procedure in some Western countries for more than two decades, despite general recognition of frequent and serious side effects. Some patients improved in some ways after the operation, but complications and impairments – sometimes severe – were frequent. The procedure was controversial from its initial use, in part due to the balance between benefits and risks. Today, the lobotomy has become a disparaged procedure, a byword for medical barbarism and an exemplary instance of the medical trampling of patients' rights." -Wikipedia

It is recorded that many patients died as a result of the lobotomy operation and many later died by suicide.

What does this teach us about the mental health practice?

The lobotomy procedure shows us that doctors who are being considered to be professionals really don't know what they are doing when it comes to mental health treatment and that they trample on patient's rights with procedures and treatments that may be inhumane.

Other Examples of Medical Unprofessionalism

The medications that are being prescribed in the current psychiatric practice are claimed to have proven a statistical percentage of effectiveness in the treatment of mental illnesses using experiments whose results cannot be replicated as scientists are currently finding out in The Replication Crisis of psychology and psychiatric medicine.

Current practitioners of psychology and psychiatry also ignore The Devouring Mother Archetype of mothers who "consume" their children emotionally and psychologically, never allowing them to become independent. The Devouring Mother Archetype was first documented by Carl Jung, the man behind the idea for the current model for all psychiatric diagnoses. Doctors ignore and fail to inspect for these mothers that abuse their children from birth until death by taking them to the doctor and asking for medications and surgeries that their children don't need, which is also known as Munchausen by proxy.

DNA Mutations in Microbes Are Not Evidence of Evolution

 

Scientists believe that the ability of a microbe to acquire DNA mutations that are useful for surviving it's external environment is an example of natural selection. Scientists consider this to be the best example of evolution and "evolution that we can see in the lab."

The DNA mutations that allow microbes to adapt to their environment within their own separate entity of species is not evidence of evolution from one species of microbes to another.

The useful traits acquired through DNA mutations, such as the trait of antibiotic resistance, can also be lost and forgotten over time.

Can bacteria lose their antibiotic resistance?
"Yes, antibiotic resistance traits can be lost, but this reverse process occurs more slowly. If the selective pressure that is applied by the presence of an antibiotic is removed, the bacterial population can potentially revert to a population of bacteria that responds to antibiotics."

If what is being considered as evidence of natural selection and evolution does not show a change from one species of microbes to another, and it's acquired trait through what we consider to be natural selection can be lost and forgotten over time, then DNA mutations in microbes are not evidence of evolution.

A Model for the Acceptance of Knowledge in Politics

 

In today's world, most voters get their information from media sources without giving the information they are receiving serious consideration before they accept it as knowledge. I therefore developed this model for the educated mind to apply in the acceptance of knowledge in politics. 

In order to form more educated political opinions, we must seek a perspective that encompasses all the viewpoints. Consider the following teaching from Nir Hazon's Scroll of Wisdom:

8. "Bias is ignorance in the lightest sense. We can alleviate our ignorance by considering a viewpoint that encompasses all possibilities."
The lightest sense of bias is ignorance. If we have a predetermined rejection of an opposing viewpoint, it will only serve to hinder a greater understanding and prevent us from seeing the larger picture. If we want to form more educated opinions, we should approach a topic with objectivity. The more knowledge that we attain, the greater the number of new ideas that we can form. Sometimes, we will be able to find new solutions to a problem if we consider different sides of an argument. Our view of the larger picture should encompass all the possibilities.

After we realize the benefits of leaving our biases behind, we must also remember to never already have our minds made up and refuse to listen to any additional information that might change our minds as all of the information deserves serious consideration. If our goal is to form more educated opinions, we must always consider all of the options.

I would also highly recommend memorizing the following teaching from Nir Hazon's Scroll of Wisdom:

18. "The moment we believe that we are smart, we are giving away our power to continuously analyze with scrutiny."
The moment we believe that we are smart and know something with absolute certainty, we invite possible foolishness. While there are some things that we can know with absolute certainty, many things that are not facts are foolishly believed due to overlooking. We must always invite other perspectives to our consideration, search for questions that could be asked, and continuously analyze knowledge with scrutiny; otherwise, we might become just as dumb as our predecessors.

I must reiterate again that we should never already have our minds made up or think that we know something with absolute certainty and the previous quote explains the reason very clearly. In order to form more educated opinions, we must leave open the ability to listen to new information and to continuously analyze knowledge in politics with great detail.

Accepting Knowledge From Media Sources

When it comes to accepting knowledge in politics, many people just think "What source?" and soak in the information. In order to form more educated political opinions, we must think about the information that is being presented to us:

  1. We must consider the intentions of the news sources.
  2. We must separate the events that took place from what the news sources want us to think about the events that took place.
  3. We must make an effort to seek the truth by reading multiple sources including the sources of the opposing arguments. We must then compare and contrast the information in an evaluation of the truth.
  4. We must become aware of the ability of the media to use manipulation techniques in the spread of information, and we can try to recognize manipulation when we can.
  5. We must never blindly accept knowledge from our authority, friends, or family members. We must reach our own conclusions based on the evidence presented and we must form our own educated opinions.
I highly encourage Americans to turn off the televisions and start reading the news.
We have politicians running based on gender and race, with no written arguments, and with no biography on themselves. We don't even know who these people are that we vote for.

For a complete theory on what knowledge we can easily accept and what knowledge is questionable and therefore up for consideration, check out the following theory:

"If we measure truth by it's existence, then we will know the truth."

The Different Levels of Reading

 
There is illiteracy, which is lacking the ability to read, there is reading and not understanding what you are reading, there is reading and understanding the face value of the material, and there is reading with inference and insight into the mind of the writer.

Having the ability to read and not understanding what you are reading can also be considered as illiteracy. There are many cases when people are illiterate. Illiteracy is frequent even among those who consider themselves to be religious, as can be seen with an examination into the words of the holy scriptures.

There is also reading and understanding the face value of the material, as can be done by plain reading, cramming, or memorizing information.

A deeper inspection into the writing leads us to expand our scope of understanding into looking through the lens of the writer. Reading with insight and inference into the mind of the writer can help us see the writing strategy of the writer as well as comprehend the author's understanding of the subject at hand. The power of inference can be used to obtain additional information by seeking to understand the author's intentions, goals, persuasion techniques, preferences, etc...

For example: We can infer that the doctor used long-term interview processes to extract the information that is given to us about the patients if we read a medical school textbook.
 
In school, there is cramming to pass the test, and there is studying the material by giving it serious consideration.

The Book of Enoch Was Rediscovered in 1773

The Book of Enoch, which is claimed to have been written by Noah's great-grandfather Enoch from the bible, was written as an attempt to save Enoch and his family from the flood. This, of course, never happened according to biblical scripture. It is for this reason that the Book of Enoch is not considered as part of the canon of inspired scriptures in most major sects of Christianity and in Judaism.

The Book of Enoch was rediscovered by an explorer from England named James Bruce after he searched Ethiopia for the book and found it with the Ethiopian Jews. James Bruce returned to Europe in the year 1773 with three copies of the Book of Enoch and successfully recovered it.

The story of the Book of Enoch is it was written during the flood and didn't result in the sparing of Enoch and his family, then it was rediscovered again by Moses where he saw his prophecy fulfilled on Mount Sinai. Then the book disappeared again for millenniums until European Christian knowledge of the book influenced James Bruce on a search of the world to find it and return with copies of it to Europe in 1773, 3 years before the independence day for the United States of America.

The Book of Enoch states the following prophecy in the beginning:

The Holy Great One will come forth from His dwelling, And the eternal God will tread upon the earth, (even) on Mount Sinai,  [And appear from His camp]  And appear in the strength of His might from the heaven of heavens.

It is said that Moses saw his prophecy fulfilled on Mount Sinai.

It is interesting to consider the implications of the history of the Book of Enoch and how it was rediscovered, disappeared, and rediscovered again. It brings to question the actual truth of the bible as well as the truth of rumors that are spread by word of mouth, as it was successfully rediscovered in 1773.

A Model for Understanding the Psyche

 
In the analysis of the psyche, we must consider all the factors of a person's reality which affects their psyche. If we are to define the conditions of the psyche, then we must appropriately give consideration to the existence of the condition.

How do we measure the existence of a condition of the psyche?
A condition of the psyche could be classified as an emotion, emotional reaction, a mood, or a state of consciousness. A condition of the psyche is present for the duration of the time that the habitual thought pattern arises. Our thinking and resulting behavior mostly exists as habits that we form. Our thought processes tend to arise in patterns. If we are currently experiencing a negative thought pattern, then we can switch into a better habit of thinking. If another habit of thinking is something new to us, then we can form a new habit. The first step to forming a new habit is to make a conscious decision to do so. The more we activate a circuit of thought patterns, the more easily accessible the circuit becomes. This means that the more we activate a better circuit of thought patterns, the easier it will become for us to engage in one. Our ability to change our habitual thought patterns proves that a state of consciousness can be transformed.
 
When we are to analyze the current mental condition of a person, we must accept the truth of the nature of it's impermanence. We might make an observation that a person is sad, but a deeper analysis would lead us to examine the cause of the person's sadness. We may ask ourselves "What is it that is triggering this person's depression?" and recognize it as a habitual thought pattern that is the result of negative sensory stimulus from that person's experience. It is important to be conscious of the fact that a person's current thoughts which lead to their emotions that affect their mood are based on what they are currently paying attention to. A delusional state of consciousness that is persistent is hereditary in only a fraction of the people that experience the symptoms of what is currently being categorized as a mental disorder
 
From the first textbook on psychiatry:
"Observations and Inquiries into the Diseases of the Mind" by Benjamin Rush (1812).
 
What does the mind have access to?

Our minds have access to observations made through our five senses: sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste.

Access of the mind to truths of the existence of entities that cannot be observed in the physical realm is considered to be mysticism.


Mysticism - beliefs characterized by self-delusion.

Mysticism can be found everywhere from an individual that believes they're a shaman that can predict the future to the establishment of entire industries, professions, and subjects of study. We should be able to recognize mysticism when we see it and separate it from what we believe can possibly be accessed by the human mind.

Understanding the Unique Experience of Individuals

Each person has their own opinions based on what they like or based on their biases.
For example: John can like going on roller coasters and view roller coasters as a good thing, while Bob can have a completely different idea of roller coasters and view them as a simulation for a car accident.

An opinion is a personal interpretation of an observation that was made using any of our five senses.

Consider the following teaching from my Scroll of Wisdom:

7. "Every person is unique and has a unique understanding of the world and interpretation of it."
Oftentimes, we may try to understand others based on our own experience; however, we cannot understand others unless we understand the uniqueness of every individual's experience. If we wish to understand others better, we can become aware of the fact that each person has had their own life experience which has led to their own understandings about the world. It is also important to note that we are all capable of various interpretations of the same things.

 

Understanding the Psyche by Understanding Intentions

Thoughts lead to intentions lead to speech leads to actions. This is knowledge in eastern psychology.

If we make an effort to evaluate the intentions that lead to a person's speech or actions, then we will gain a better understanding of a psyche. We can become observant of our own intentions that lead to our own speech and actions if we want to practice conscious awareness and mindfulness. The ability to identify the intentions that lead to a person's speech or actions will aid us in the course of developing a better understanding of the psyche.

For example: Brittany might eat a candy bar. Her intentions are to enjoy it. Based on her decision of eating the candy bar, we can infer her intentions. If Brittany's intentions were for personal health, then she would have not eaten the candy bar.

The consideration of the intentions of an individual can help us understand their values and preferences better; however, we must always consider the possible changes in behavior people may experience around different people, in different places, and at different times.

 

The Existence of Mental Illnesses

The idea for the current model for all psychiatric diagnoses is borrowed from astrology and attempts to fit people into categories of behavior. The model for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders from 1952 has not been updated since. What is currently being identified as mental disorders cannot be observed by any of the scientific instruments that we currently have.

You can view my proposal for a new model for all psychiatric diagnoses below.

The natural ability to heal ourselves

The innate ability of the mind to heal itself is proven in science with the placebo effect.

Methods for Self-Healing 

  • Distressful thoughts and feelings can be remedied by shifting our attention towards other things that may bring us joyfulness such as feeling rewarded for achieving a goal, or by the removal of the root causes to our mental suffering.
  • There are other possible methods of achieving mental healing that require more consistent mental efforts and practice such as the practice of making beneficial changes to our personal behavior by first making a conscious decision to start paying attention and begin to observe our own thoughts, intentions, speech, and actions, in that specific order. With the awareness gained through our observations of ourselves, we become more mindful and can consciously adjust our thoughts, intentions, speech, and actions to our liking.

Re-evaluating Current Knowledge in Science Using the Scientific Method

 

My name on StarCraft is Bacon.

 
England's Sir Francis Bacon (1561–1626) came up with the scientific method.

Scientists need to re-evaluate their current pool of knowledge in the field of science as there is much knowledge that has been accepted into science that was not obtained using the scientific method. This knowledge includes knowledge that has contradicting evidence that is being overlooked such as hidden knowledge on the theory of evolution, as well as inconsistencies that exist in nature such as polystrate fossils which dispute the validity of the radiometric dating of rocks as the results cannot be scientifically understood in a repeatedly verifiable manner.
 
In science you’re supposed to try and prove your hypothesis wrong, not cover up contradicting evidence in what you call a theory that’s still only a hypothesis.
A one-time or even a multiple-time observation that ceases to be observable is distinguishable from consistent observation which proves the existence of a natural occurrence in the physical world.
 
There are many examples in science of knowledge that is not consistently observed across the board in the physical world and is based on a hypothesis. In modern science, we have examples of what we currently consider to be scientific theories that are actually mere hypotheses as they cannot be tested by experimentation as according to the 3rd step of the scientific method that comes after the development of a hypothesis. These examples include the Theory of Evolution as well as the Big Bang Theory which both are actually considered to be hypotheses according to the scientific method.
 
If we are to be true scientists, then we are to distinguish what we consider to be scientific knowledge from questionable knowledge which is up for consideration. Questionable knowledge that must be distinguished from what is currently being considered to be scientific knowledge includes story-based knowledge such as historical knowledge of the timeline of planet earth, speculation-based knowledge such as the estimations of number values, and pseudo-scientific knowledge such as knowledge of statistical data.
 
Acquiring the ability to make the distinction between scientific knowledge and questionable knowledge which is up for consideration will heighten our self-awareness and improve our understanding of the truth of our reality. If we are to counter indoctrination, which is the acceptance of knowledge without giving it serious consideration, then we are to put the classifications of knowledge into practice by applying the methods for measuring the existence of knowledge as they are defined in my Model for The Measurement of Existence in the Theory of Acceptance of Knowledge.

The Measurement of Existence in the Theory of Acceptance of Knowledge

The truth of the existence of what we believe to exist is to be considered and thus evaluated for the truth of it's existence. For example, a psychiatrist can diagnose a person with bipolar disorder, but if we look at the evidence that exists in neurology, the study of the biology of the brain, it shows us that according to neurology there is no such thing as bipolar disorder.

We acquire the knowledge of the existence of things by making an observation of it's existence. If we didn't directly observe what we are to believe to exist, then we can attempt to identify if what we believe to exist can or cannot be observed by asking that question to ourselves. If we cannot observe it's existence to be true for ourselves, then we can believe in it's existence based on if it can or cannot be observed by others.

The Measurement of Existence in the Theory of Acceptance of Knowledge is therefore the idea of making an effort to examine the truth of the existence of what we are to believe to exist.

What does the mind have access to?

Our minds have access to observations made through our five senses: sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste.

We are therefore to accept the truths of our observations. The acceptance of all other knowledge that is not made through our own observations is based on belief which we accept by trust.

Access of the mind to truths of the existence of entities that cannot be observed in the physical realm is considered to be mysticism.


Mysticism - beliefs characterized by self-delusion.

Mysticism can be found everywhere from an individual that believes they're a shaman that can predict the future to the establishment of entire industries, professions, and subjects of study. We should be able to recognize mysticism when we see it and separate it from what we believe can possibly be accessed by the human mind.

- - - - - - - - - -

The following knowledge of the measurement of existence is defined as according to the classifications of knowledge in my model for the Theory of Acceptance of Knowledge that are shown below:

The Classifications of Knowledge

Indisputable Knowledge: 

(Easily-Accepted) 

  • Observation-based Knowledge: Knowledge that was observed or can be observed.
    • Scientific Knowledge: Knowledge that was drawn from experiments whose results can be replicated as according to the scientific method. The same exact results for the same experiment are observed, and therefore we can verify a natural occurrence that exists.
  • Deduction-based Knowledge: Knowledge that was drawn by the deduction of any other possibilities.
 
Questionable Knowledge: 
(Up for consideration)
  • Story-based Knowledge: Knowledge in the form of story-telling that we believe based on the authenticity of the evidence that supports it and the implications it has on how it supports the knowledge or based on the sources that provide us the information that we are to believe.
  • Speculation-based Knowledge: Knowledge that is based on speculation such as the estimations of number values.
  • Pseudo-scientific Knowledge: Knowledge that was drawn using methods other than the scientific method.
    • Statistical Knowledge: Knowledge based on statistical data which is vulnerable to fraud, miscounts, the variability of all the factors that go into how the study was conducted, as well as data manipulation techniques such as stopping the intake of data once a certain percentage has been reached.    
 

"If you measure truth by it's existence, then you will know the truth."

The Measurement of Existence

in

The Theory of Acceptance of Knowledge

The following understandings of the measurement of existence of the different types of knowledge that exist in relation to what we are to accept as knowledge are analyzed:

[Indisputable Knowledge]

 

The Measurement of Existence

of

Observation-based Knowledge

A one-time or even multiple-time observation that ceases to be observable is distinguishable from consistent observation which proves the existence of a natural occurrence in the physical world. We must be careful of conclusions drawn based on observation-based knowledge.

For example: A cat that you see every day at the same spot for 3 weeks in a row does not necessarily mean that the cat will be there the next day.

Therefore, you cannot accurately predict future observations based on past observations when the factor for the prediction is inconsistent in it's existence such as all living beings. Living beings that are mobile can also inconsistently differentiate from their regular routine.

*There are cases when what was observable knowledge for yourself cannot be replicated and is therefore story-based knowledge for the recipients.

The Measurement of Existence

of

Deduction-based Knowledge

When we know that there are no other possibilities, we can conclude that the only possibility is what exists as indisputable knowledge. 

Methods for deducting other possibilities in order to derive the only possibility left vary from scenario to scenario that we are to consider in our evaluation of all the possible cases of what can be true. We can deduct a possibility based on a factor that would make it impossible or wrong

In the process of determining the deduction of all the possibilities when it comes to story-based knowledge, speculation-based knowledge, or pseudo-scientific knowledge, we can label the factors of the possibilities as "highly unlikely" or "somewhat unlikely" as an example of making evaluations of knowledge that we know to be disputable as it cannot be directly observed. In cases when we are to rely on the likeliness of the factors involved in the possible outcomes, we should come to understand the truth of the existence of the multiple possibilities. In cases when we are forced to reach a judgment,  a decision will be formed based on a well-informed basis for making the judgment. The factors that we are to consider in the evaluations for all the possibilities and the deduction thereof are to be made by observations. Knowledge that was not obtained by observation deserves an examination of it's own. Observation-based knowledge and deduction-based knowledge are to be separated from any story-based knowledge, speculation-based knowledge, or pseudo-scientific knowledge which we are to consider with the label of likeliness.


[Questionable Knowledge]

 

The Measurement of Existence

of

Story-based Knowledge

Story-based knowledge is based on belief and an educated mind would accept story-based knowledge based on:

  • The authenticity of the evidence that supports the information that we receive.
  • The implications the evidence has on how it supports the information that we receive. 
  • The sources that inform us of what we are to believe.

Story -based knowledge can include the historical knowledge of the timeline of planet earth, ancient and modern history, facts that we believe were observed by others, stories of personal accounts, as well as any other information that is received in the form of story-telling.


The Measurement of Existence

of

Speculation-based Knowledge

Speculation-based knowledge appears as knowledge that we are being asked to accept when the basis for forming the speculation may not have a strong backing of evidence. There can be many cases when we can be misled by speculation-based knowledge such as the estimation of number values when it is not being acknowledged as a speculation or an estimation. 

An examination into the true value of speculation-based knowledge raises questions. For example, if we were asked to give a number value for the date of an ancient archaeological artifact, but we have no method for an exact date measurement and only have enough knowledge to form an educated guess at best, then we would most likely use an estimation for the dating of the archaeological item to represent it's age, whether the estimate is accurate or not.

The most important questions to ask when examining for the true existence of speculation-based knowledge is:

  • What method did you use to make the estimation? 
  • What evidence did you use as a basis to form the speculation?

We can raise our awareness to recognize speculation-based knowledge which can be useful in the examination of the truth of things. We can also give speculation-based knowledge, such as the estimation of number values, serious consideration by seeking to understand the method that was used to draw the estimation and the evidence that was used to form the speculation.

The Measurement of Existence

of

Pseudo-scientific Knowledge

Pseudo-scientific knowledge can guide or mislead us into believing in the existence of a trend or a phenomenon that may or may not really exist. There are some notable uses for pseudo-scientific knowledge, such as making estimations of populations to keep track of stats such as population growth and migration as well as determining a chance percentage for a risk factor such as the survival percentage of mountain bikers which can help us make the decision of if we want to partake in this extreme sport. The most important factors that go into the consideration of the results of a pseudo-scientific study are in how the study was conducted. After careful consideration is made on how the study was conducted, we are to gain an understanding of the vulnerabilities to errors that the factors could have possibly had during the course of the experiment. The vast majority of pseudo-science today is based on statistical data whose results cannot be replicated. It is a common practice to use a measurement of a fraction of the population to represent the statistics of an entire population. The problem with statistical knowledge is just like you can come up with a study to measure the percentage of wins on lottery machines, your results will never be accurate because you will never be able to measure all the other machines.

Statistical data is vulnerable to fraud, miscounts, the variability of all the factors that go into how the study was conducted, as well as data manipulation techniques such as stopping the intake of data as soon as a certain percentage has been reached.

For these reasons, we must always be careful of conclusions drawn from statistical data and we must always consider all the factors that went into how the study was conducted in our examination of the true value of pseudo-scientific knowledge.

Are opinions considered the truth?
