What comes after knowledge is wisdom. Knowledge can be memorized, while wisdom is based on ingenuity applied to knowledge. For example, the layman carpenter can look at books as to how to install a door. He can learn and memorize a procedure for this. Wisdom allows one to apply this basic knowledge in ways, it was not originally laid out when learned. The master carpenter can install doors, even in situations, he never saw in any book. There is no need for new knowledge, in books, since his wisdom generates what is needed for the new situation. With wisdom comes less need for new knowledge. Going from knowledge to wisdom shifts thinking from the left brain to right brain. The right brain is more spatial and is able to self generate the knowledge based on previous patterns in the left brain. If one is only left brain, you need to keep adding new externally generated patterns as each time new situations arise.
