Klinkenborg synthesizes our arsenal of writing thusly:
- What you’ve been taught.
- What you assume is true because you’ve heard it repeated by others.
- What you feel, no matter how subtle.
- What you don’t know.
- What you learn from your own experience.
These are the ways we know nearly everything about the world around us.
