Firstly, the interpretation of knowing something is a concept that is hard to grasp. A definition that needs to be understood is what it means to know something. A person can state that they know something but how would I be able to determine whether or not this fact is correct. If I were to google this information, who said that what google states are true.
I can say that I know something, someone, or how it works, but once I peel back a layer or look at it from a different perspective. What I knew before may not be what I know now. Knowing isn’t something that can be gathered, controlled, or held, it’s an ever-changing concept and a concept in which is being developed every second that a person is alive.
I personally believe that unless you experience it yourself, through the five senses, the percentage of truth that it holds cannot be determined. It is like someone saying that they saw a ghost and that ghosts are real; I cannot say that this is false, nor can I say that this is the truth. Only once have I experienced the same thing can I then say that I do know.
Furthermore, many people would say that they know for sure how they feel about something or their thoughts towards something. I truly do believe that this is all that someone knows, but it is an ever-changing feeling. Such personal thoughts are the only thing that I can say for sure that I know, this is because it is my personal opinion or thought, it’s not something that someone else can decide for me.
To conclude, one of the few things that I know for sure is that I don’t know “anything” for “sure”. I can’t explain why something actually is that. In fact, life can be a whole hallucination and I wouldn’t even know it.
