We live as an integrated experience—we see, know, and function in connections. Life, like knowing, is not an isolated activity—it is a rich, interconnected part of who we are. We cannot stop the desire to know.
The desire to know is balanced with our desire to communicate, to share,to connect, and our desire to make sense, to understand—to know the meaning. In an effort to make ourselves understood, we create structures.
To hold our knowledge: hierarchies, books, libraries, encyclopedies, the internet,search engines.
We create spaces where we can dialogue about and enact knowledge: organizations, schools, universities, societies. And we create tools to diseminate knowledge: journals, discussion panels, conferences.
