“Knowledge is a function of being.”

“…If one is not oneself a sage or saint, the best thing one can do, in the field of metaphysics, is to study the works of those who were, and who, because they had modified their merely human mode of being, were capable of a more than merely human kind and amount of knowledge.”

Aldous Huxley in his introduction to “Perennial Philosophy”
