Experience is “meaning.” It collects knowledge, understanding, reason, etc., and places it within consciousness. It is the “known” and consciousness is the “knower.” It is not a duality, but a relationship between knowing and the knower. It represents that which “is.” Without a knower to know, nothing could be known and, by contrast, without something known a knower would not exist. Experience is this knowing. It is both a starting and an ending of itself. It provides direction for being through the spatio-temporal realm while denying essences to protract into time. Essences can only be known in their immediate experience. Beyond that they fall into a “nature of experience.” It is more like a stolid pond capturing the already-past on its stagnant surface while hiding all that lies beneath and beyond its darkness.
