The post-pyramidal structure of wisdom.

The post-pyramidal structure of wisdom.

The world that we perceive consists of objects and subjects. The objects are basically defined as data. Facts that lie on the basis of the pyramidal scheme I will try to describe in this text. The subjects are the beholders and the receivers of these objects. In order for them to become receivers of the objects, they must transform the data into something else, more subjective for their criteria. This transformation of data is called information. Data with given meaning. This creates a second level to the pyramid I am describing. When the given information is acquired by a given subject and then used for the creation of new information, it can then be called knowledge. It is not an agent of change anymore, but a standard characteristic of the given subject that can generate agents of transformation and information. This adds the third level to the pyramid. The reader can understand that knowledge is even more subjective than information, so its length must be narrower than the one of information. The fourth, and perhaps final, level of the pyramid is the one of wisdom. When the acquired knowledge reaches a high level of saturation for the understanding of objectivity, one reaches the awareness of her or his personal wisdom. Wisdom is then a sign of personality. The ultimate way of distinction between people's different character. Wisdom stands on the top of the pyramid as the last and ultimate transformation of the essence of data, the pyramid's base.
If one takes this description into account, can see the structure of a pyramid with a stable basis, that consists of potentially infinite lowest units of data quanta, whether their name is that, or quarks, or bits. This pyramid must necessary not have just one top. Its tops are potentially infinite as the number of potential receivers of information that exist in the potentially infinite universe. So, the beholder of this text, has to imagine a base of stable infinite length that draws paths of specification from objectivity to subjectivity towards an infinite number of tops. So if one thinks of the base, just for the sake of this argument, as a traditional square type of a pyramidal base – where the square includes infinite points – , another can think of its extension of tops being equally square shaped. So, this post-pyramid can look like a cube. Of course the original shape of the base is quite abstract as the shape of a side of infinite length can be. Consisted of extremely structured particles, though. And the levels of information, knowledge and the tops of wisdom can be equally different in terms of height and direction, depending on the time required for the data to be transformed into every individual agent's wisdom. The connection is a necessity, as objective data reflects subjective wisdom and vice versa.
