Knowledge is a peculiar thing. If you ruminate on the knowledge you currently identify with and ultimately adopt, hence is lurking in your long term memory, you’ll find that it is cultivated by past cultures and historic notions of what the capital T truth is. Knowledge is formed by the unwelcome aid of narrow biases, that some can even argue are archaic since the universe is rapidly changing. With that being said, scientists cannot leave their biases at the door, and even if they can, what about the biases they are unaware of? We need to earnestly be aware of all the knowledge we garner, and somewhat take it all with a grain of salt. Because again, like knowledge, perception is culminated by preconceived notions that we have been conditioned to think through via our cultural, social, and historical template of deriving meaning from experience. The fact of the matter is that knowledge is somewhat fleeting and there is dynamic/rapid change in our universe which in turn dubs the solid, ingrained information that we once thought was capital T true, to being debunked if not by the minute, by the second. This will continue to happen throughout the timeline of the universe since there will always be a new theory to why X is that particular way and not another, for instance. Ultimately, I’m not saying that all you know is wrong and should be elbowed out in the poppycock section of the brain, but alas, one must realize that biases pervade and culturally and historically constructed ideologies and what is deemed as being Capital T true, could very well not be the most optimum or virtuous answer. Then again, what really is the truth in this era of advanced modern technology where people are contradicting themselves left and right whilst dabbling in “convenient” facets that they are in no way shape or form qualified to partake in. Advanced technology, as a byproduct, mass communication has unfortunately opened the doors for people that have no sort of solid enlightenment about a topic, to blatantly rejeugate their so called two cents on an issue. Case in point, empty veins beat the loudest. Time will tell that more often than not, the wrong people have the mic, so called “Enlightening” us and bestowing their knowledge upon our ignorance. The limelight views mass communication as a step towards interconnectivity and development and in turn shoots us forward, when in reality, we’ve never been further behind.
