Knowledge & Experience

n

Is there is a kind of paradoxical relationship between knowledge and experience?

Something along the lines of spirit & matter?

My experiences bring me knowledge.

My experiences also bring me knowledge that all knowledge from experience is tainted.

This knowledge-by-experience may be close (and moving closer) towards true knowledge.

Yet this knowledge-by-experience also seems to be forever temporary … forever removed from true knowledge.

The more I learn from experience the less I feel I know.

I feel I need to detach from what I’ve learned through experience to arrive at knowledge.

I depend on experience to move towards knowledge. I depend on relinquishing experience to arrive.
