Cornellius what if nothing can be known? What if only everything can be loved, and a heart can only prosper?

Umm my answer to have an answer to that question that satisfies us I guess?

You can function without love, but you can't survive without a minimum of knowledge.

That's actually a quite accurate view of things. Knowledge is basically false, its just that depending on the circumstances, it can appear very real.

I meant knowledge as being logical, to always know or be able to find a way to solve problems on this earth. I believe that knowledge is at first neutral, then it takes one side or another depending on the person using it.

My 2nd most important thing would be choice.

Let's not forget memory and wisdom, in order to remember our mistakes from the past and be able not to repeat them.

An episode of South Park, an Eeyore mug that says "Happy go lucky", and hot apple cider. Ask me again in 20 minutes or so...

Knowledge is something you have - it's neutral. Wisdom dictates how you use that knowledge.
