Knowledge as a trophy

When a knower sets a period at the end of inquiry and claims that this is knowledge, it’s a little like posing with knowledge as a trophy: the spoils of the hunt.

Now we possess a territory that was outside the perimeter.

But possession of knowledge does not capture the liberating dynamic of knowing.

It merely replaces one framework, one boundary of knowledge with another.

Is this really helpful? 

We don’t need another theory, nor do we need to construct more units of meaning.

The knowing we are interested in is the knowing of the space that makes language and appearance possible.
