A Theory of Knowledge

All humans are directly related to each other in form. Each of us believes that we are unlike any other on the planet. That no other believes, accepts, or contemplates as we do. To apply this concept to any other person, that is, that I am the only one who is like me, would be to call them egotistical. Yet humans do so without thought do to their convictions of uniqueness. To prove that each of us is the same, other then insignificant differences, is to dispute all past ideas of knowledge. However, to counter present ideas of thought is to gain in knowledge and to acknowledge that we are yet to understand how we think.

Humans postulate that they are unique individuals. In spite of the fact that they realize and embrace a sort of collective intelligence of other knowledgeable persons who lived, and died before their own existence. How could each individual have a unique individual thought process when humans only gather information from previous deliberation. Granted is the fact that each seeks to find knowledge for themselves, they are simply realizing that another’s information is truth, if only in part. They accept another’s information as true if it so pleases the ideas that they, the individual, wishes to comprehend at that given point in time. However, one must acknowledge that the uniqueness of rebuking knowledge is in fact given to every human.

Concluding that to learn is to tap into a collective human thought process that many have drank from before, but to rebuke, to refuse knowledge is a unique human characteristic. Tapping into the river of knowledge with collective thought is universal. To accept or rebuke collective knowledge of human thought is a unique trait. Depending on what information any particular person will accept depends on their given complexity of knowledge and behavior at that given time. If a purple man had just tried to kill a green man the green man would hold a certain amount of prejudice against all purple people. The green man may not accept any new knowledge from the purple race, and he might rebuke any past knowledge. If however he were to understand that this one person, or small group does not represent the structure and beliefs of all purple people then he may not loose total faith in the purple peoples collective thought. He may not fully trust the next purple person without thought but he also would not distrust them. On the contrary if a purple man were to save a green mans life the green one would not ignorantly believe that all purple people are wondering the streets looking for a life to save, but he would lean towards trust and not immediately distrust the next purple person he saw. Concluding that collective knowledge of past experiences controls how we will perceive future happenings.

The process of thought, or how we think, is indeed distinctive from that of others, but only because of past experiences controlling how we perceive the future. The universal ideas of thought are collective and can be found the same in individuals on separate sides of the globe. For instance, the thought that there is a Supreme Being is believed in one form or another over all of the globe. For Asian persons He is Buddha, for Europeans He is YHWH, for those Native to America He is the Grand, or Superior Creator. Another example would be creation, how we came to be here thriving in life on this planet. The concept of creation and how life came to be are passed on over all of the globe as stories. These parables, in detail are indeed distinctive but in plot they run parallel with occasional overlaps. These are collective thoughts that are passed through the lines of humanity threw books, stories, myths and legends. This collective thought is believed because of the amount of time that they, the stories, have existed. To rebuke them is to rebuke all that have passed this information threw the centuries of time gone by.

Concluding that we do not make up our own convictions but accept in confidence those of prior generations. We as a race accept the collective thoughts and ideas of those who lived before us.

Overall, all persons are that of which was before them, they are not unique in any other form other than how personal experiences have molded them. The thought that no other believes, accepts, or thinks as we do is egotistical. I believe that if more people were to collectively believe that in plot, in essence, we as a race are the same that more persons would trust purple people and approach with trust rather then it’s opposite. The knowledge of humans is superficial, but only because we do not accept others ideas based on details in contrast. If we are only looking at a tree that is all that we will see, however, if we look at the collective whole we will see the forest.
