Intellectual Knowledge

to know something intellectually only is not to know it at all.

Eric Weiner

Not to be taken too literally – the point is that we have a capacity for experiential knowledge – things that we cannot put into words but that can be conveyed only by experiencing them fall into a category outside of reason and intellect. Also, true attention to something, where a concept is allowed to penetrate the mind without distraction, may transcend common intellectual knowledge.
