Making It Easy

Knowledge is selective. That’s crucial. We have to filter out a lot, all that is disguising, all the data that we do not need at this moment. If we see nothing but the relevant phenomena, decision is easy.

Active Selection

Every space is a space of knowledge representing just a certain selection. To enter a particular space means to make a specific selection.

Still, this is generally more than simply applying an absorbing filter. It is principally different from merely selecting ready-made things. It is an active process, the things are to be manufactured.

It is much like applying a program.

We Decide

We are actively forming and selecting our world, even the physical reality. That means that there are other possibilities, all the time. We decide which one is real.

Pieces Of Activity

Physics — as well as other domains of knowledge — enable us to calculate and predict the outcome of selected events and actions. Based on this knowledge we can decide better what to do next.

This is one of the main purposes of knowledge: to provide us with certain pieces of activity, clearly defined processes allowing us to achieve precisely determined results.

Best Action

Knowledge helps us find the best action in a particular situation. Not always do we know one that applies perfectly. Sometimes experience just tells us not to repeat a certain mistake.


Constantly recurring activity patterns are things (in the sense used here). In the end, all things are repeating activity patterns.

They are the elementary components of knowledge.

Together they constitute a structured space, the space of knowledge and of activity.
