But I don't want to confuse you readers, so I'm going to use common language. Okay?
People speak of three different places where you can know something: in your body, in your mind, and in your heart. Each one works in a different way, to give you a different type of knowledge. Here's a chart:
- Mind—The intellect uses reason, which results in wisdom.
- Body—The senses uses experience, which gives us knowledge or intelligence.
- Soul—The intuition uses perception, which gives us understanding.
- My reason tells me that two parallel lines will never meet.
- I know it is sunny today, because I can see the sky.
- I believe that the Great Wall of China exists.
Sometimes, there is no overlap between the three types of knowledge. For example, an infinite line or the subconscious mind cannot be perceived by the senses. That makes it impossible to have sense-knowledge of those things. You can have knowledge about them, yes, but not through the senses.
