The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Growing up, I hardly ever attended school, starting around 2nd grade. I eventually just stopped going at all, to start the 10th grade. I'm intelligent, but possess very little formal education. I know things because I pay attention to my surroundings, no one taught me this behavior... it's innate, due to my genetic potential for intelligence. I work with and have known a lot of highly educated people, most are totally ignorant to the world around them. Knowing things (i.e. education) doesn't necessarily make you intelligent and being intelligent doesn't necessarily mean you know things... intelligence is your problem-solving and critical thinking ability, not how much knowledge you possess... a LOT of people lack in the PS and CT area.
