301. His knowledge and his understanding

He knows everything.
He knows everything
  And understands nothing.

He understands everything.
He understands everything
  And knows nothing.

To be in the world of the soul
  Is to know everything.
To be in the world of the mind
  Is to understand nothing.

To be in the world of the vital
  Is to understand everything.
To be in the world of the body
  Is to know nothing.
