In my opinion, I think the amount of knowledge that will be just enough to empower us without predisposing us to the side effects of overdose of either of them depends on one thing- Maturity.
The extent to which we are mature determines the amount of ‘safe’ knowledge that we will have access to without destroying ourselves. This knowledge when eventually applied gives Power.
Well, some of us may think that many people have access to knowledge beyond their level of maturity, but it is important to note that such people either have been ruined or are on their way to ruin. It is just a matter of time.
It is important to note that many people think that Knowledge is Power, however until knowledge is applied, it is useless and utterly powerless.
