What is knowledge? Is it an orderly way of knowing things about things in relation to the truth? In times when the truth is relativized to the extent of becoming uncertain, does knowledge have a chance? There is a lot of effort put in dividing knowledge into little bits and pieces so no man can easily reach the point of seeing the full picture. Instead of understanding the principles behind events, we are pushed to study the consequences and outcomes.
Notice the orderly fashion of little divisions of knowledge, represented by hundreds of books. Numerous vertical lines, each containing bits of information and leading away from the principles behind the cause and effect. By no means, books represent a valid pointer to the knowledge. One can learn the way to reach the goal through books. However, books are not the goal. They are the road signs. Some people say there is a vast potential of universal mind one can enter and learn the core principles of everything.
All the various colours represent all of the many subjects we are able to read about in tons of books. The rectangular shapes are underlying the idea that we are studying with reason, learning new subjects, opening our minds toward new ideas, going forward with new notions and carry our knowledge within our minds. However, tons of useless books exist and the sheer choice of information makes people give up the search and rather fill their day with entertainment and fun, instead of walking the path of knowledge. Is it deliberately set up to be so? I'm not so sure that we'll ever find out.
The sign in the top left corner very vividly describes what is happening with the knowledge in present times. It is the reason for the photograph. :D
