Comprehension and understanding

Comprehension and understanding


The following sentences should convey a concept:

  • If YOU comprehend but do not understand, YOU have an intuition.
  • If YOU comprehend and also understand, then YOU can explain.
  • But if YOU understand without having comprehended YOU can only parrot.

Do you only understand or understand and comprehend the concept?

As a side note, you tend to think about YOU as one indivisible being, but this implicit assumption limits your comprehension.
