knowl.edge.o.cep.tion – the process whereby the stimulus of a new piece of information or knowledge (which includes facts, opinions, experience, emotions and body awareness) triggers a range of interactions with existing elements of knowledge, creating expanded perceptions that exceed the sum of the parts. Initially felt as a flash of insight, these interactions establish new, neural integrated systems which form deeper understanding, broader awareness, stronger convictions, additional unrelated thoughts, new world views and, ultimately, a deeper and wider scope of wisdom.
