Knowledge Systems in Nature


Nature with Knowledge 

Look around you, what do you see? If can't find anything to observe, maybe it's dark there. May it be dark inside you. Take a walk to observe nature. That's all we need to see and feel the light of knowledge around us.

Knowledge in nature

According to Locke;Knowledge of the external world is not achieved through thinking about the definitions of our terms or comparing ideas that we have already acquired. Knowledge of the external world doesn’t rest on any proof of the external world. Instead, knowledge of the external world is achieved in sensory experience. 

Knowledge is free, It's our minds that look thoughtfully at everything with how much knowledge we can bear to handle and sustain the pedals of the wheel of life, keeping the balloon of life floating. Every beat and every sound produced is a memory of knowing what's important and necessary for humanity.

From books and ancestry DNA keepers to nature as the highest source of knowledge and the closest knowledge keeper. In human nature, there's a cultural wealth of knowledge and an abundance of traditions in folk music and tales. 

There's a silent voice in every flower and everything speaks the language of scenery imagination in nature. We can feel it as holistic ideas and the mysterious nature of knowledge wrapped around every culture and its people. Be it indigenous culture or modern culture.

The elders as the sole keepers of the sacred knowledge embedded in the systems of culture and education. The books and electronic signatures of knowledge may no longer sustain the test of time but nature is here and there as well as within ourselves, and in every living being to instruct life with orders of knowledge.

Knowledge Systems

The term "knowledge systems" refers to the different ways in which people understand and interact with the world around them. These systems can be categorized into three main types: local knowledge, indigenous knowledge, and scientific knowledge.

Knowledge systems

Local knowledge is the knowledge that people have about their immediate environment, such as the plants and animals that live there. Indigenous knowledge is the knowledge that is passed down from generation to generation within a particular culture or community. Scientific knowledge is the knowledge that is gained through the scientific method, which involves observation, experimentation, and analysis.

Indigenous knowledge is the means through which the principles of Indigenous worldviews, beliefs, traditions, practices, and institutions are shared and put into practice. The knowledge is local in scale, transmitted orally, collectively owned, holistic in perspective, and adaptive in nature.

In the context of nature, these knowledge systems can be used to better understand and manage biodiversity. For example, local and indigenous knowledge can provide valuable insights into the behavior of animals and the ecology of a particular area. Scientific knowledge can be used to develop new technologies and techniques for monitoring and managing biodiversity.

It is important to recognize that these knowledge systems are not mutually exclusive, and that they can be used together to gain a more complete understanding of the natural world. By combining different knowledge systems, we can develop more effective strategies for conserving biodiversity and protecting the environment.

  • The knowledge of gathering the stars and keeping their voices heard is of every knowledge bearer and seeker.

  • The knowledge of sharing love and peace is not limited to the shining stars but extends to the fading stars as well.

  • The knowledge of making shelter for hard weather situations is not limited to the vehicle of knowledge but to every knowledge bearer.

  • The knowledge of tending our hearts and souls is the work of art from songbirds, rumbling drums in the clouds overwhelmed by droplets ready to pour down life-sustaining currents.

  • The knowledge of keeping up with time and knowing that everything is going to be alright is the light of hope and wisdom.

  • The knowledge of ecology defining everything in one sphere of interdependence is life in its essence.

  • The knowledge of math, science, and astronomy from the observation of the natural environment and contemplating the universe of everything natural, educational, and life-supportive in the hums of light.

It's the systems of knowledge from the core system on top which is nature, down to indigenous knowledge to modernized knowledge. The novel ideas in the music of nature and strums of wind breeze on trees, and ocean currents are the collection of the sounds echoing knowledge.

Reading and speaking from within the preconceived ideas to painting the images and symbols of meaning in a metaphorical language. Also interpreting them into literal equations with mindfulness and a pen.

Bringing back to life the silenced knowledge is integrating the indigenous knowledge with the modern systems of knowledge. A melting pot of cultures and knowledge forging the concrete system of pure practical knowledge and skills.

Don't forget your history in the abundance of knowledge. Your ancestral story is your natural destiny. Destined to achieve the best as the knowledge bearer in the universal explanation of life experience as a human being.
