Once we know we know nothing, we can experience things as they are, as they interact with our senses.
As our senses have no memory, no thing our senses experience is like any thing we’ve known heretofore. Everything is new and energizing. We feel alive and connected to whatever we are experiencing
The mind has no senses, only memories. Memories convince us we know things. As such, we experience things not as they are at the moment, but in comparison to other things in our memories. In turn, we have various emotional reactions (love, hate, indifference, envy, etc.) to what our mind thinks it sees, precluding us from experiencing things as they are: wonderful.
