Somebody presents you with something. Like, I walk up to you and say, "Two and two is eleven". That's some information. It's bad information, but it's information. O.K. Now, if somebody comes up to you and says "Two and two is eleven", and they have the Presidential Seal on their coat, and they got bunting waving in the background, and balloons go up, you might consider it for a minute. So, that's information. Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is the point at which you know something, O.K. Now, wisdom is the idea that you have a bank of facts. To behave wisely, you have to deploy those facts in some way. You can deploy them stupidly or you can deploy them wisely. So, information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. You can take all the sorted pieces of information which gives you a knowledge base. You can act in what you believe is a wise procedure, but that is not necessarily any ultimate truth. And just because something is an ultimate truth doesn't mean it's beautiful. And just because something is beautiful certainly doesn't mean you have to love it. Because there's lots of ugly stuff that you could love, too. I mean, I love my dog. Not a particularly attractive dog, but that's a wonderful dog. <br><br>Marshall: How did it continue after Beauty? What are the rest of the lines? <br><br>Zappa: Oh, well, it's: "Information is not knowledge, Knowledge is not wisdom, Wisdom is not truth, Truth is not beauty, Beauty is not love, and Love is not music. Music is THE BEST" <br><br>Marshall: If "Love is not music", what is "Love"? <br><br>Zappa: It's chemical, merely chemical. <br><br>Marshall: And it can be... <br><br>Zappa: Chocolate induced  ,..<br> ..............cont.

That is a great site, Slimey.  Looks like they have added new artwork.  I esp like the Donna Barr and Frank as Galactus.  Also there is a dave sim with frank as Cereberus, I think.  I didn't get a real good look since my pc froze up a that moment Cool.

It has nothing to do with being "right"

When I ask a studnet a question, I am not seeking information, but rather my motive is to start the thought process for that studnet. The wheels start to turn,.. hopefully!

:lol:
My typing sucks! I can spell, really..lol,..but I just can't type for doo doo.
When I had to type papers all the time it was much better and then I noticed,..after some time of not doing it..Now I have a bad habit of looking down at the keys and ....my right wrist was always crooked. so..?
I have to be more careful.

Very funny though considering the subject. lol :lol:
