KNOWLEDGE is: The presence in the human spirit of a particular object of thought, which we consider subjectively or objectively as True!
True Knowledge is contrary to Faith, which is based on subjective, and not necessarily, on objective reasons, rational causes and concrete experiences.
In Philosophy, knowledge is: to know something as “something”, to be able to prove about a thing or property that “it is what it is.”
For everything that is considered as cognitively demonstrated, there is contained a “correct judgment which is based on experience “and the” certainty of proof. »
In Plato, the Essence of Knowledge is Truth.
Truth is: The affirmation or the negation, from which is realized the sense of truth based on the interest of “us”, which is good for all, and not the sense of truth based on the interest of ‘the ego”, which causes evil for all.
Between the “us” and the “me” enters the consciousness of Knowledge, the positive outcome of which determines its use for the benefit of the social whole, while its negative effect harms many in society.
Plato says: “There should be a truth with general validity.”
The “True” and “General Validity” arise only from the organized USE OF KNOWLEDGE whose, as Aristotle says, «exclusive and sole purpose is the good of the Whole.”

ΤΗΕ USE OF KNOWLEDGE
The HEPTAPOLIS, International Green Polis, will be a World Center of Letters, Arts and Sciences, whose sole purpose will be «the use of knowledge for the good of the Whole.”
To the “Whole” belong Man, all beings of the natural world, and the Earth as the reference center of the Creation of Laws governing its existence and operation.
Because «Man is the measure of all things, and because Man has ‘infringed upon the measure” so that humanity and our planet today are in a “critical condition”…
Because there is only the unplanned –and beyond reasonable limits –use of knowledge, particularly in the Global Centers of Middle, Higher, and Highest Education, and young people graduating from universities are not taught, based on international experience, the dangers of the position that Humanity today and our Planet finds itself in, owing to the lack of teaching what is ‘useful and beneficial “to limit the spread of the woes that have befallen the Planet and humankind…
The HEPTAPOLIS, International Green City, is coming to fill, using also your own personal experience, the «Knowledge Vacuum” that is identified through the benefit that may arise from the use of real knowledge.
For each of the 94 currently taught sciences in Academic Schools and Universities of the world, we are inviting experienced and enlightened scientists and visionaries, the choice of whom took place with special consideration, to assist with their expertise in the common struggle for the way in which we must act, now and in the future.
The students who have completed their studies at the undergraduate or graduate level, the active scientists exercising their discrete function, especially in the sectors of Teaching, Research, and Experimentation, to enlist the use of their results in the benefit that will arise, if that benefits the many or all, not the one.
The absence of self-interest and the presence of the interest of the many, in the exercise of any science, is the “Bread and Wine” of the current requirements of the people and the planet.
Aristotle said: “The happiness of the many should be the definitive purpose of every kind of knowledge.”

CONCLUSION
Let us work, each separately through his own science, and let us envision a new “human-centered” society and let us order our thoughts to such methods and rules, that our science be made charitable, and as much as possible useful for all people and the planet itself.
In today’s harsh reality, the failure of the “ use of knowledge” for the “common good” creates a spontaneous need to teach pupils, students, and scientists how to think and act, so that what they are taught and what they teach aims exclusively at the “benefit of the All.”
