I think education provides us with knowledge, but experience provides us with knowing.

Education becomes experience and experience becomes education. Nice circle. Nice question Vee.

Education is the insertion of data within the consciousness without authentication and forms the foundation through which reality data with regards to the particular subject or "idea" is then filtered through, manifesting the necessary data of authentication.

Experience is where the same data, that has already been collectively accepted, is stumbled upon accidentally or by individual effort.

Either way it is a manipulated reality where the second method appears to push the envelope.

But who is setting the boundary?

Is it me....?

Or is "Me" the boundary?

well education is some knowledge(theory). but experiance is the real knowledge(first hand experiance). example you might learn stuff at school for a profession but when you go get a job what you learn in school and the real thing are 2 different things. example: you might learn mecanic at school on new car but when you will go do a job on old car it will not be the same thing your bolt will be rusted you will need to heat them up with the torch you might brake some and will need to drill and redo the treads and put a new bolt. same thing in body shop i have know someone that learned in school and when he went for the job it was not the same technique that he add learned. so yes education is good but experiance is better. so experiance and enjoy.

one definition of education is - " knowledge or skill obtained or developed by a learning process.

and for experience - "the apprehension of an object, thought, or emotion through the senses of the mind."

i would say that experiences educate us.

Precisely, I agree, thank you.

Lets give an example here so that you will know the difference. You know that if you bump your toe against something it will hurt. That is knowing through education. When you actualy do bump your toe and feel it hurting like hell that is experiance.

Education is knowing and Experiance is feeling.

@paulina-or is it the other way round,lol.tell a young child not to do something and he'ii probably go straight and do it, does he learn something when he falls and hurts himself- you bet he does!

@Paulina G: Well I have bump my toe many times, and it sure does hurt like hell, and it was the most uncomfortable experience ever; and I have learned through experience and education to wear proper foot wear to safe guard my toe. Thank you.

not sure what is implied when you say education,
but experience is what you completed (went through on planet earth) today, yesterday and since you were first put together
