Knowledge. Of. Self. [K.O.S]

At some point through out the day I become greedy for knowledge. Somehow I always end up researching music, researching lyrics, researching meaning, researching the double entendre in the words, researching things a typical person has yet to discover. Discovering the existence of the meaning that artists come across. The meaning they want us to hear. There’s no limit. Stumbling across words I came across a song called K.O.S (Determination) by BlackStar (Mos Def & Talib Kweli) and for some reason this bar caught my attention and made all the sense in the world:

"At exactly which point do you start to realize, that life without knowledge is death in disguise. That’s why, Knowledge Of Self is like life after death. Apply it to your life, let destiny manifest."

It’s basically saying that at which point in your life do you plan to realize that if you’re not self educated, if you don’t gain knowledge for yourself then you’re already dead, mentally, because you live your life only believing in what you are told. If you gain “Knowledge Of Self” then you should use that knowledge towards living a better life and then maybe your fate will become clear.
