What do You know?

Have you ever asked yourself about what you know? If you are a weird thinker like me, the answer is probably yes. Of course it seems useless and impossible to keep track of how much we know, but then, we find ourselves wondering about our IQ, or just reluctant to join a debate, just because we are not sure of how much knowledge we have accumulated. In this article, I am going to introduce a new way of quantizing your knowledge based on the amount of information you have being exposed to.
Think of this as a more accurate IQ test, where the result is not based on how you understand what everyone should understand, but rather, it represents the accurate amount of knowledge you have in your brain. My expectations are that you become able to use the test to figure out how much you know so that you become more prepared to face the challenges of everyday life.
First, let’s take a look at different types of information people have being exposed to since they are born.
1. Food
2. Safety and Protection
3. Communication
4. Social Net working
5. Simple Math
6. Nature and Science
7. Teaching
The list above goes from the very first information people are exposed to when they are born, and the list goes from 1 to 7, 1 being the very first thing we learn and 7 being the very last thing we learn. When a baby is born, he/she does not learn about being safe, the mother and the doctors are the ones expected to protect the newborn baby, and keep him/her safe. The baby cries, and as soon as he or she is given the first taste of motherly lactose, suddenly the baby learns about food. In two days, the baby is able to perceive hunger, and learns to request food. Days later, the newborn baby gains vision and start visualizing everything around. But still, the baby only knows about milk, and where the milk come from. This is why Safety and protections is the second in the list. Six or eight months later, the baby is able to recognize people, and maybe cry when the person holding him or her is not the habitual person. This is because the baby learned about safety and protection. The mom, as we notice in other animals, is the one that will protect the baby to the full extent. Notice that the baby only learned about milk, and then suddenly jumped to learn about protection, and consequently learning about the importance of communication. 9 or 12 months later, the baby only knows about food, safety and protection, and communication. After 12 months, the baby starts learning about other people such as close relatives, so learns the number of people living in the house before even knowing how to say it. Following, the child starts to learn how to count. When the child is sent to school he or she starts to learn how to write numbers and letters, and the science of the surrounding nature. Most of time will be spent on learning about how to work with nature, and how to communicate ideas related to everything learned since step 1 to 6, and one day, after having learned from all 6 categories, the person becomes able to teach and help others, which step 7 in the list.
It is important to also notice that I did not conduct any experiments on this, however, just for the purpose of the blog, I am certain that the information is true and accurate, and that there is no other thing people learn out of the 7 categories I listed. Also, I am certain that people learn each of the categories from 1 to 7 without skipping. In other words, no one learns number 3 before learning number parts of 2. No one learns number 7 before number parts of 6. Thus, you do not need to learn 100% of a given category in order to start learning the next, but some percentage are still required to be learned before the next category begins.
So, how much do you need to learn in a given category before jumping to the next? The answer to this question would probably depend on each person’s willingness to learn. I would probably need to conduct an actual experiment on this, but my educated guess is that the more exited you are about learning, the less you will learn in a given category before jumping to the next, but then you realize how little you learned from previous category so you’ll carry both at once. In other words, just like you only needed to learn about milk in order to learn about how your mom represented protection and safety to you, you will only need to learn to count until two or three in order to develop some sort of pseudoscience of teaching. Yes, I have seen a 3-year-old babies teaching others how to count numbers from 1 to 4, which happened to be the maximum the babies, pseudo-teachers, could count. The main point is that it is uncertain, how much you need to learn before jumping into the next category, but am sure that genus have a range at which their percentages are kept, before jumping to the next. The question without answer is: how to become a genus? It has no answer because no one really know how much one must learn in each category before jumping to the next.
It is also important to notice that despite the order of the categories, people can still revisit each unlocked category any time. That means that a person will be able to learn more food and while learning how to count, and when the percentage of learned information in the numbers category allows the person to move on to science, the person will be learning some science, and numbers, and even more information in the food’s category.
The purpose of the list is to help people to know how much they know. It works as follows:
From 1 to 7 is the absolute scale and at a given point, everyone in the world should be able to be in the level 7, even if each category was not 100% learned which is in fact impossible (Do you remember the taste of the milk you used to drink as new born baby?). My new list is like the new IQ test. If you learned until parts of category 7, congratulations, you are smart, and the C you got in college does not represent the capability of your intellect, but rather, the much you know.
So how much do you know? As you may have noticed, my IQ test qualifies someone as an intelligently willing to learn person or intelligently only interested food person. The percentages of information in each category represent how much you know. The C you got on one of your exams represent the amount of information your brain retained from that specific subject. Maybe you know more about trigonometry, and less about calculus. Only when you make an exam, you are able to find out how much you know. Remember that at category 6 you will be tested a lot because people who mastered category 7 care about those who are still in category 6, who are the future instructors, and problem solvers for the whole society.
In conclusion, as long as you learn that you should not starve, as long as you learn what you should eat. As long as you learn to be safe and make others feel safe. As long as you know how many people you can rely on, and how many rely on you. As long as you understand the planet and the universe in which you live in. As long as you care about teaching the little you know to others. You are in level 7 of IQ, so do not accept any one classify you IQ as lower compared to other people because you are at the top. However, you should know that you will not know everything. Your social network will not be the best. You will never count from zero to infinity. And you will always be far from completely understand nature. All you can do is narrow a particular field of study as much as you can, so that you become a genus in at least one topic, so that you can join the vast majority of PHD’s people who care about education, always join together as single all-knowing body called faculty in order to teach society as whole.
