Throughout the quest for knowledge, one cannot help but be influenced by his or her personal point of view. As human beings, we all approach this quest from different aspects, while interpreting knowledge in ways unique to our own reasoning, emotion, perception, and language. By human nature we reflect upon our personal experiences when presented with knowledge foreign to our own awareness, and when exposed to unfamiliar surroundings. While one could argue that this preconceived thought is an obstacle to be overcome, personal experiences and past knowledge are essential to consider when embarking upon new beliefs and knowledge claims.
