I just want to remind you that understanding the nature of reality has nothing to do with evolving the quality of your consciousness. Knowledge does not equal wisdom or good decisions.
not to provide argument, but rather to move beyond this specific context well stated, would you entertain the idea that some knowledge might have an indirect contribution toward the rate of change of QoC?
Perhaps another layer here may be that knowledge is contributory, preparatory, not the actual game-play itself. Maybe like reading a cheat sheet for a video game, it has no significance if one does not actually understand the information, engage the game, and apply the knowledge.
Even with nominal MBT knowledge at the mental level, I suspect it remains very difficult to know if one has absorbed it usefully, as so much is prejudiced by the lens we study it through. Nevertheless, reading a map badly must be better than tossing it in the back seat and driving by compass or something.
I suspect only a very small number of knowledge bits are important for more directly goosing QoC delta, if indeed one has any influence on this from the mental level. A little meditation and lucidity regarding intent during interaction probably goes a long way, with most of the detailed meta-physics having a different significance.
Or perhaps there is some sort of absolute truth to this disconnect as stated above, and MBT is more about providing some mental comfort about our overall purpose, principly so that we can relax
and get back to the organic process, without over-thinking it, without trying to game it in any way.
