Small peeps, I believe in the same as you really, only the semantics are slightly different. Instead of seeing it as learning, I see it as
remembering. Yet, the whole process of remembering, means experiencing potential.
Of, course I've come to a knowing of something, and how do I know, I have experienced it, and understood it. I know, that what I knew, is wrong. So,
while I maybe trying the same question again, this time I actually know more wrong answers, so I can eliminate them. This is why they say experience
is the best teacher.
Think, if you could experience all of space-time in a single moment, would you be able to handle this knowledge? Wouldn't you say that was too much
knowledge? I think It would drive you insane. Your brain is not capable of dealing with all this information at once.
So, we have take it a step at a time, like the tortoise in the tortoise and hare story, and not just race ahead, because it creates the illusion of
knowledge, and this only feeds our ego, that stunts our progress. That is why the hare lost.
We can't do everything at once. I am guilty of trying this of course, and I really am going to stop reading books just for knowledge and heed to the
advise of the wise people in my life. Clearly, I am not as wise, as my ego would have me believe.
