The Conclusion

The very famous scientist Albert Einstein also said "The only source of knowledge is Experience".The first man with only the pure knowledge would not have the physical capability to play an instrument that only comes with practice. People need the ability to try, fail, and learn from their mistakes. This leads to the statement that practical knowledge is far superior to pure knowledge, because knowledge with out any sort of experience or practice makes it difficult to apply in a real world setting.

Another Good Example

Suppose one man learned or was taught everything there is to know about playing music, such as how to read music, which keys produce which note, etcetera, but had never actually touched the instrument; and another man had experience playing an instrument with little to no formal instruction and learned via practice. Which of these men would be the better musician? Clearly the second man would be the best musician.

The above conclusion is due to the fact that people need experience and to learn through trial and error, rather than just being given knowledge with no application.

PRACTICAL vs PURE Knowledge: The Most Needed One In World

In Book VI of 'Nicomachean Ethics', the great philosopher 'Aristotle' delivers an intriguing example explaining the connection between practical knowledge and experience.

“This is why some who do not know, and especially those who have experience, are more practical than others who know; for if a man knew that light meats are digestible and wholesome, but did not know which sorts of meat are light, he would not produce health, but the man who knows that chicken is wholesome is more likely to produce health” (7, page 1802).

Performer - audience synchrony

When you are at a concert and you get to the part with a refrain from your favorite song, you are swept up in the music. The performers and audience seem to be moving as one.

Research has shown there is a synchrony that can be seen in the brain activities of the audience and a performer. And the greater the degree of synchrony, the more the audience enjoys the performance.

The Psychology Of Awe And Wonder

For centuries, religious scholars and philosophers have tried to find out the meaning of ‘awe’. It is generally defined as a feeling of being aware and present in something that is mystical and vast, and which we don’t fully understand.

Usually, something vast and dramatic can provoke this feeling of awe, making us go wow with the unusual experience. But apart from the size, this feeling involves an attraction, something that makes us want to accommodate or keep the experience with us, due to our changed understanding of the world.
