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.
