Philosophical Questions #2: Does Knowledge Have Intrinsic Value Or Does It Need To Have A Practical Use To Have Value?

Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, skills, or objects. By most accounts, knowledge can be acquired in many different ways and from many sources, including but not limited to perception, reason, memory, testimony, scientific inquiry, education, and practice.

Value is the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.

So, does knowledge have intrinsic value or does it need to have a practical use to be valuable?

I would say knowledge does have intrinsic value, knowledge doesn’t have to have a practical use to be valuable. For example, we could have knowledge of the universe that isn’t practical to be able to be applied to life but is intrinsically valuable to us for our understanding.

But then isn’t that practical if we know something? Oh dear, down the rabbit hole again..

If You Are Not A Wolf You Will Be Eaten By Wolves

This post is inspired by a comment on my poem called “empty beings” which included questions asked to me about this Arabian proverb. Thank you: evolutionofselffeedyourhunger.wordpress.com

"If you are not a wolf, you will be eaten by wolves ...

Arabian Proverb: “If you are not a wolf, you will be eaten by wolves.”

This Arabian proverb means to me that those who are not thinking for themselves, who are not bold and who do not speak their own truth will get eaten by those that do. The wolf is a metaphor for a alpha, free thinking human.

Would you consider yourself the Hero or Villain, why or why not?

I would consider myself the hero and the villain. I consider myself both because we live in a world of duality. I have aspects of myself that are attributes of a hero and I have the shadow aspects of myself that would be considered the villain. Someone else’s villain is another’s hero. However, overall I would consider myself as the hero archetype in the sense that I am here for the good of humanity and am a light being evolving in this universe who only wants good for all.

Now I ask the same questions to you:
What does the proverb mean to you? Would you consider yourself the hero or the villain, why or not not? Let me know in the comments.

Question Truth

When it comes to the truth always question the source from where it is coming from, especially if the source is media-related.

You hear one thing in a documentary and BAM, that is truth and that is reality.

What about thinking for yourself?

When you hear something, question it.

Question all sides.

Do your research.

Put effort into thinking instead of gobbling up information like a baby bird being fed by its parent then form an opinion.

Your perspective is only what it is.. Opinion. An Outlook. One fractal view point of a diamond with an infinite amount of perspectives.

Opinion does not equate with solidified fact, that’s why it is called an opinion.

And ironically this is my opinion.
