Knowledge is power, I hear this quoted often but would like a broader answer than just my own, please share your thoughts on this.

Ha, ha, Mr. Happy, I might have known you would have something to say, for your information that painting is not a drawing, just joking around no offence intended, nice to know your about, I like the patterns of being, that's a good way to put it.
Trippy painting then ... can tell how much I know about drawing/painting ... I just like creative expression - that is what we All are anyway: creative patterns of Being. Cheers! : )
Sorry but it's more a nightmare to me, the progress of life into machines and I suppose nightmares however horrible they might be are also trippy as well, it never dawned on me before either.Yes you might not know but you can appreciate a picture.
That's yet again something else that hasn't crossed my mind, thanks for helping us empower ourselves, cool.
Empathy is a knowledge of self and others I never thought of it as knowledge before and people who cheat often have great empathy of others which is also something I have only recently learned. Interesting new stuff for me thanks.
Yes, simple to the point and a bit like my own take on it, that's why I asked the question because no offence intended but I wanted a bigger grasp of it. Simple is most often best because any fool can complicate things as somebody once said. Thanks
Hi, unfortunately not a good position to be in but you do have a positive take on it, today's worries will not change tomorrows problems but they will affect tomorrows happiness if left unattended, a piece of reality from a real situation, thanks.
Thanks that's a good analogy.
In your context the idea that knowledge is only power if you use it is a nonsense really then because you have to use your knowledge to even have a life, otherwise you would be dependent on someone or something else to make decisions for you. Thanks.
You don't get it!
Read it again, knowledge is what you KNOW, if you don't know anything then you can't do anything.
And maybe you didn't read the second part.
Your right, I don't get what, I agree with you, I was just pointing out that in something else I read it said that knowledge was only power if you used it but that isn't true, knowledge is power if you use it or not, it is still power.
I totally agree Gareth. Knowledge is power no matter how you use it.
Yes, thanks to you and everyone else this has been rewarding for me. It has given me what I asked for and more. Which is a broader understanding as well as the realization that knowledge is power in and of it's self.
The bit about the upper hand by using the knowledge fits with something I came across. it said "knowledge is only powerful if you use it" otherwise it's just knowledge, for me that puts a different slant on it, Knowledge isn't power it can be, thanks
Thanks, I agree with your points and also know that we all learn stuff all the time even without even trying. Just living our lives we learn stuff but it is also very useful to go to college if you can to get some direction and structure.
Yes we do learn something everyday without even trying to. It's very true that we learn something new everyday. It might be something very small that we learn and we still may be able to benefit from what we have learn.
