Communication (from Latin commūnicāre, meaning "to share") is the act of conveying intended meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs and semiotic rules.
Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, information, descriptions, or skills, which is acquired through experience or education by perceiving, discovering, or learning.
Media may refer to:
If you can look into the seeds of time,
And say which grain will grow and which will not;
Speak then to me.
William Shakespeare, Macbeth (1605), Act I, scene 3, line 58.
Various attempts have been made in recent years to state necessary and sufficient conditions for someone's knowing a given proposition. The attempts have often been such that they can be stated in a form similar to the following:
(a) S knows that P IFF (i) P is true, (ii) S believes that P, and (iii) S is justified in believing that P.
... These ... examples show that definition (a) does not state a sufficient condition for someone's knowing a given proposition.

Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.
