Knowledge is Great? Really? How? We have to blindly go with, yes, we have to agree on this. If we have no knowledge then we wouldn't have known about the past. Knowledge helps to know the present and the future, also we wouldn't have known about what is natural and what is artificial and their differences. I also agree that Knowledge is Great or I would rather say Knowledge is Greater than Seven Skies. I have Twitted at #KNOWLEDGEISGREAT as Knowledge is Greater than Seven Skies too.
There is no value for anything if we have no knowledge about those objects / things and we would value it only if we know or have knowledge about it.
Simple story as an example for Knowledge is Great:
There was a group of birds few hundred years back and its name called as Murghabi or Teal duck or nearest to Eurasian Teal in a particular place at particular time. They used to roam here and there as a season birds. They used to lay an egg (looks like shining small stone) on the earth itself in a very remote or deep forest area. Only very few forest visitors used to see it as rare scenario and even very less fortunate visitors among them used to take that egg out, keep it at their home due to its look different than normal egg and pretty nice for decoration at lobby as well.
One fine day, a person took an egg from the same forest, brought and kept it in his room as a decoration. His friend came to home who was working in a Diamond factory in other nearest country, his friend asked him what is this (egg / stone shape)? He replied, it is an egg of Teal duck and got it from the forest. The friend who came from a Diamond factory told him, this is neither egg nor attractive stone but Diamond. When he 'knew' it as a Diamond then he got shocked and now its value become more than earlier - knowledge helps of course.
Later, the Government of that country came to know about it from his friend, those forest area controlled by the authority to get and use those Diamonds. After that, this country become a richest in a shorter period from this source by exporting it. More than fifty percentages of the economy growth of the county were based on this Diamonds only.
This is the difference between 'before knowing or lack of knowledge and after known or knowledge'. So, definitely Knowledge is Great.
If I could study / specialize in any subject of my choice in the UK, what would it be, where and why? My answer simply is as follows;
What Study: Spirituality
Where: University of Hull (or) London College of Spirituality (or) British Association for the Study of Spirituality.
Why?: It may be funny but have to say it. Almost all studies of Graduation or Master Graduation related to Physical needs of human only, except Spiritual needs. This Spiritual study can help to know the real differences between Physical and Spiritual to enrich both to attain even more knowledge. The simple query/answer is, when human dead, their physical exist on the earth as dead body but it doesn't work. Why? It means, spiritual of the dead body gone away which helped that man / woman to act for everything till dead, so who among them is more powerful for knowledge? Physical or Spiritual? Study and knowledge on these topic will help to know even better in our life.
