Predicates of this Blog 5

There is a great gulf between knowing something on the level of theory and knowing it on the level of fact. You can have a piece of information in your brain and yet never connect with any empirical reality in the world beyond you. If something known only in theory becomes realized in life, it is often a shock. Such shocks can lead to new ways of thinking.
Neither the theories nor the facts necessarily have any connection with truth.
