    Each language has its own expression for, "I know it like ..........".

    And the expression shows how that group knows things through their senses.

    So it is important to say that I am not talking about individual perception, but rather I am talking about group perception. I am not talking about 'I' , rather I am talking about 'we' at the national level.

    Of course is we belong to a 'we' based on extreme individualism, then all of this will pass us by.

    Aside from the fact that how we 'know' is a great philosophical and interesting concept.

    We best not forget that comparing the various saying in various cultures don't say a single thing about our perception of knowledge, but rather our ability to learn our cultures sayings.

    Which ironically makes us arrive at a funny notion. As a large, probably the largest, part of our knowledge, is taught to us through subjection of others. The teachers. And although the method in which we take in that knowledge is largely of our own choosing. The method in which that knowledge is presented to us, is mostly out of our control. And we go full circle.

    Our way of knowing is our cultural prosperity.

    So the Russians are tactile and the French are aural.
    And yet the Russians made such great music, as did the French. Both cultures have great literary traditions too.
    Stereotypes don't get you very far.
