Default Knowledge: Formal and informal



A lot of folks think that the next best thing to knowledge, is knowing
where to find it: After seventy-six years in the big parade of life,
I've learned a few important things: One is that everything _isn't_
all written down and what is isn't necessarily all right.

What's even worse is that the knowledge of the most intelligent, most
highly educated, and smartest folks isn't necessarily true; it's more
important to learn how to ascertain true knowledge than it is to read
it or hear it.

That my friends is what I'm seeking and have found a modicum of. This
is what I'm trying to pass on to you and to posterity. There's nothing
more important than truth! Especially when that truth involves the
physics of nature; on which we so depend.

This truth will make life, peace and prosperity much easier for
everyone here on this Earth.

"There are two sources of knowledge:
The direct and the indirect"

"Demonstration and refutation
together with their fallacies
are useful in arguing with others;

and perception and inference
together with their fallacies
are useful for self-understanding"

There is no point in trying to justify your failure in these

Including your age, apparently. On the 11th June, you told us you were
74 ("Gramp's wisdom"), but now, suddenly, you are 76. Are you using the
same units as the rest of us? Or did you perhaps stay at home while we
all nipped off somewhere at the speed of light?

One of the things you failed to learn, apparently, was your own
age. Or did you age two years since starting the thread
"Gramp's wisdom of 74 years"?

Who was it that said:

"What's written in books can't make you any money, because everybody
else already knows that stuff."?

It is about a 4 to 7 year lag in high tech sector till it gets into books.

They only people who say that are Lawyers.
And the only people who believe them
are Chemists, so it's just recursive
gibberish written by Psychologists
looking for a Doctor with a low-end
Torque Mercedes, a butchy Gestapo escort,
and an ATM Machine close enough that
even OJ Simpson wouldn't cut it's throat.
