Information Vs Knowledge

Question: What is the difference between information and knowledge?

Information is the mundane and factual. Knowledge is the profound, the deep and the holistic.

Information is merely the external defined relationship - be it as a gf-bf or a husband and wife. Knowledge is the deep shared love, the awareness of each others moods, the connected empathy, the intimate familiarity with each others scents, the feel of the different parts of each others bodies - the vast foundation of which the external relationship is merely a limited feature or symptom.

Like love which can spill across the defined boundaries of relationships, knowledge can spill over the limits of discrete bits of information.
