Seven Statements on Knowledge

1. Knowledge is what one knows.

2. Not all knowledge is articulated.

3. Only recorded or articulated knowledge can be accessed.

4. Three types of knowledge are possible: True Knowledge, False Knowledge, and Non-falsifiable Knowledge.

5. True knowledge is falsifiable; it is knowledge that has been empirically or logically proven to be true until now.

6. False knowledge is knowledge that has been empirically or logically proven to be false until now.

7. Non-falsifiable knowledge is that which can neither be proven true nor false, empirically or logically. (Examples include some fundamental assumptions of moral and political philosophy, literary and aesthetic theories, and other non-falsifiable beliefs, insights and opinions.)
