Wisdoms balance.

Does the need for more wisdom mean you are less without it?
(Does the need for wisdom mean you are without it?)

Is there a more or less wisdom?
(Is wise a measure of the amount of wisdom?)

Is to be wise to be complete?

Are those who do not seek out wisdom unwise?

Can one be unwise and seek wisdom at the same time?
(Are we found with wisdom and lost without it?)

With wisdom is one balanced?

Is without wisdom, or unwise, or just not seeking it unbalanced?
(Can you be balanced and not be wise to wisdom?)

Are philosophers unbalanced because they search for wisdom?
Are philosophers only balanced when they have found all the wisdom?
(Can you be a philosopher and not have wisdom or seek it?)
(Is there an ALL to wisdom, does wisdom have a finishing line?)
Can one be totally wise or wise totally?
(Know or be all the wisdom?)

Is there a total balancing wisdom that can make a person or philosopher whole?

If this total complete wisdom exists are we all unwise unbalanced incomplete until we have found it?

Are phillsophers unhappy without wisdom of their own?
(Are unphilosophers happy with wisdom not of their own?)

@sometime sun,
Does the need for more wisdom mean you are less without it? Less wise, yes.
(Does the need for wisdom mean you are without it?) According to the perceived need, yes.

Is there a more or less wisdom? I would think so.
(Is wise a measure of the amount of wisdom?) What else is?

Is to be wise to be complete? I don't think so, we have other needs as well.

Are those who do not seek out wisdom unwise? Only according to those who do, I think.

Can one be unwise and seek wisdom at the same time? That's the point of seeking it, yes?
(Are we found with wisdom and lost without it?) It may help, but is it the end all be all answer?

With wisdom is one balanced? Like complete, no.

Is without wisdom, or unwise, or just not seeking it unbalanced?
(Can you be balanced and not be wise to wisdom?) According to us, yes.

Are philosophers unbalanced because they search for wisdom? We think so.
Are philosophers only balanced when they have found all the wisdom? You can't find it all.
(Can you be a philosopher and not have wisdom or seek it?) No.
(Is there an ALL to wisdom, does wisdom have a finishing line?) No.
Can one be totally wise or wise totally? No.
(Know or be all the wisdom?) No.

Is there a total balancing wisdom that can make a person or philosopher whole? No. It is the process of philosophy, I think, more than the end result.

If this total complete wisdom exists are we all unwise unbalanced incomplete until we have found it?

Are phillsophers unhappy without wisdom of their own? I would be.

Is there a need for wisdom?

There is always a less wisdom. Wisdom is gained through experience. Experience is captured through consciousness. Experience is finite.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:

To be complete in what way? In mind? Body? Soul?

sometime sun;146246 wrote:

Yes. Unwise and lazy.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:

Yes. Wise people start out as unwise people.

They might be. It depends on the wisdom they have. One can be wise in their job, but still have inner turmoil.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:

(Can you be balanced and not be wise to wisdom?)

If one is balanced, they have wisdom.
If one has wisdom, they are not necessarily balanced.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:

No. The wise are only wise to a certain extent. Wisdom is a never ending battle.

sometime sun;146246 wrote:

Not all of it; some of it.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:
(Can you be a philosopher and not have wisdom or seek it?)

Of course I can!
A philosopher never stops seeking.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:

Refer to the above answers.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:
Can one be totally wise or wise totally?

:detective: That position is reserved for God.

sometime sun;146246 wrote:

No. Total wisdom can't be obtained by one person.


sometime sun;146246 wrote:

No. Refer to above answers.

I'm not sure one needs to be balanced in order to be whole. What does it mean to be balanced, after all? The goodness of being balanced has become a truism. I think you are right to raise the questions you do.
