Knowing and Understanding


图片取自 You. Me. Us

  But the complexity of their world was baffling. Dor came from a time before the written word, a time when if you wished to speak with someone, you walked to see them. This time was different. The tools of this era —— phones, computers —— enabled people to move at a blurring pace. Yet despite all they accomplished, they were never at peace. They constantly checked their devices to see what time it was —— the very thing Dor had tried to determine once with a stick, a stone and a shadow.

  Why did you measure the days and nights?

  To know.

  Sitting high above the city, Father Time realized that knowing something and understanding it were not the same thing.
