  1. The first approach is rational.

    Knowledge is the possession of certain information.

    Understanding – seeing the relationship between a) the fact of the existence of this information and yourself: your decisions, actions, and future; b) the ability to assess the degree of influence of this information on the thoughts, feelings, and actions of other people, as well as phenomena and social processes.

    For example, you can know a certain word in a foreign language – how it sounds, how it is written, how it is translated. But at the same time-do not understand all the meanings that can be embedded in it when using its speech and the context of all situations when it can be used for its intended purpose.

    Speaking about this approach, it is usually remembered that knowledge does not guarantee understanding.

    The second approach is esoteric.

    Knowledge is the domain of the heart, intuition, and spontaneous decisions;

    Understanding – brain area, ration, analytics.

    Accordingly, in the second approach, a big human problem is considered to be a mismatch in the operation of these two systems, when one of them works much less than the other.

  2. KNOWING this means simply remembering some information and understanding it minimally.

    TO understand this means to have very deep and solid knowledge, which is obtained only with great difficulty – by carefully studying and repeating the theory, solving a very large number of examples and problems.

  3. To understand means to know. It can be clarified that Knowledge itself is an equilibrium construct that has boundaries, form, and content. Understanding is the process of achieving this balance. Knowledge and Understanding are inseparable, like cause and effect.

  4. To understand does not mean to realize, i.e. knowledge as the most extensive and profound includes a superficial process of understanding.

    Knowledge is the ability to perceive the entire causal chain, understanding is the process of catching one connection, i.e., just a single element of the causal chain. Understanding is based on the perception of the evidence of the process, knowledge includes evidence as a consequence of the hidden essence of the process.

    Knowledge should be understood not only as the extraction of certain information from the operational memory, i.e., the current incarnation, but also as the knowledge acquired (conscious experience) and accumulated by the energy center of the Bowl from the experiences of past incarnations. Some people, such as those who act intuitively, can be said to have knowledge but no understanding.

    Understanding is intelligence, i.e. the work of the mind, knowledge is spirituality with the work of a complex laboratory called a person, including including the mind.
