Hi Ross.
Nice column. A much needed differentiation in my opinion.

I start the 'cycle' with purpose. Then as you say comes data collection. The beginning of study.

Followed by enough data assimilation to form a body of connected data and thus knowledge.

Then the cognitive, conceptual understanding. All this I see as stages of a natural path of study.

So that being three stages I would personally say there are quite a few more before wisdom.

Nice thought-filled piece as usual.
