Is Knowledge Unchanging?
Is knowledge unchanging?
If knowledge does not change, how and why do we learn? Can we improve our knowledge?
If knowledge changes, why do we revere old texts? Haven't we evolved beyond ancient ideas?
If knowledge does not change, is all progress an illusion? Are we simply lying to ourselves to create a false sense of meaning? Is our meaning defined by our progress?
If knowledge changes, must we constantly readjust to new realities? What defines those realities, if not our knowledge?

Epistemology! How do we even Know that we know what we know. We could look at western philosophy's distinction b/w 'a priori' and 'a posteriori' and go from there maybe. I'm not sure what you mean by knowledge, but I'm guessing it is more along the lines of knowing the world around us, as opposed to concepts such as what it means to be human, or what lies beyond our perceptions.
