Please note that we are just beginning to develop this web page and that the nature of the subject matter makes it very difficult to translate it into the language of the average person.  Therefore, this web page may be developed slowly, revised frequently, and revised dramatically.

 

 

What is the nature of knowledge?  In other words, what makes knowledge what it is?  There are those who wrestle with this question for a lifetime and never reach any conclusion.  We have reached a conclusion.  This page presents that conclusion, the outline for the proof of that conclusion, and links to the mountains of documentation of empirical (experimental) proof that develop that outline.  All of this content constitutes the results of one of our other 40-year studies, one of our other “Forty Years Projects.”  We explain the “nature of knowledge.”  Please note that this is not a philosophical discussion.  This is a scientific explanation based on empirical (experimental) research.  (This empirical research used new sciences and new technologies to achieve our objective.  We shall be presenting and explaining these, at length.)  We begin with our conclusions:

 

 

CONCLUSIONS

 

First, knowledge does, indeed, have a “nature.”  To put it another way, “there is something that makes knowledge what it is.”

 

Second, that which makes knowledge what it is is known by various terms.  One such term is “the ring of truth.”  Note that this is a “virtual term.”  That is, it is not literal (concrete, physical, visible, tangible, manifest) and it is not figurative (imaginary, conceptual, hypothetical, speculative).  All terms used to refer to “that which makes knowledge what it is” are virtual terms.  Now, while not being literal, such terms are “virtually literal.”  The important thing to know about virtually literal terms is that they refer to things that exist and are a part of conscious experience.  We will discuss this at length below.

The 1992 Adult Literacy Survey shows that about half of us read at or below the eighth grade reading level.  The Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level for this web page is currently 8.3.  In other words, this web page is designed for American adults who can read at the high school freshmen grade level or better.
