Common Knowledge

Common Knowledge: Something known to most people. (knowledge) – facts – belief. Oxford Dictionary

Peter: Just because everybody believes or ‘knows’ something to be true doesn’t necessarily mean it is a fact. All knowledge in the realms of the Human Condition is firmly rooted in the ‘Wisdom’ of the past and almost exclusively consists of what is passed down from generation to generation. Such passing down of knowledge has been formalized into a system of schooling, both secular and spiritual, whereby history, morals, values, prejudices, superstitions, facts, beliefs, and concepts of the previous people on earth is taught to the new recruits to Humanity.

On the other hand, all of the practical, mundane discoveries and advances in human knowledge have come from a ‘standing on the shoulders’ of those who have advanced human knowledge in the past. And much new knowledge and discoveries have come from questioning the failures and/or limitations of knowledge to date and finding new and better ways of doing things.

The resultant advances, particularly this century with vastly improved communications and transport, is in turn giving ever-increasing numbers of humans direct access to a stunning amount of knowledge – both facts and beliefs. This same abundance and availability of information now means that knowledge is now passing from the restricted ‘hands of the few’ – usually the scholars and priests, aided and abetted by the rulers and politicians – to a free and unfettered access to all.

This profound change in accessibility ensures that it is now possible for anyone – given an inquiring and discerning mind and sufficient intent – to ascertain for themselves what of ‘common knowledge’ is fact and what is merely belief, superstition, myth, legend, psittacism, theory, concept, idea, assumption or opinion. This new development, only now coming to full fruition, will increasingly bring the ‘sacred and hallowed’ knowledge of Ancient Wisdom under scrutiny and investigation, both in terms of making sense and bringing results.

One can almost hear the God-men trembling in their robes…. and well they should. Their time has come to an end – they have failed to deliver.
