What should we rely on in order to gain knowledge? We should rely on ourselves through our own personal journey and through the Word of God, in all of its forms, for knowledge. It is through these two that we learn who we are and are shown the truth about our creator, the Lord.

Like I said before, maybe there is a spiritual plane that we can reach through prayer and similar activities, the higher reality that we are not always able to see and experience. If we could reach this higher reality, maybe it would expand our mind and allow us to reach a greater knowledge.
How is what is more real related to what is less real? I think that what is...
