Why does one forget so many things in the course of one's life? Why, on the other hand, the knowledge we retain has some peculiar, non-quantifiable, qualities to it? What it means to be in the know? These are the questions we'll try to answer in this podcast, by referring them to one all encompassing distinction - that between 'Being' and 'having being'. As always we begin with real life examples of the problem and in the course of discussion touch upon the important subject of personal identity, i.e. we denounce the error of identifying the person with the consciousness, an error that becomes quite apparent when reflecting on act of sleep and of having dreams. Also, we turn to our previous work on Nicholas of Cues' De Visione Dei to provide us with some aid in addressing the problem on the higher level, once we abandon the ground of everyday experience.
