  1. Information + Thinking (meditating on the material) = Wisdom.

    “Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her [wisdom] not, and she [wisdom] shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”

    (Proverbs 4:5-7)
