INTRODUCTIONKarl Popper was a British philosopher who described a perspective that how reality andreal world events can be observed and described. The model provided by Karl Popper consist ofthree worlds namely physical, knowledge and information world. The report will provide acritical analysis of an event and how the experience can be linked with the three world modelprovided by Karl Popper.CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF AN EVENTAt once I experienced an event when few years ago I went to a restaurant. When my foodarrived, I observed that the food was looking good. In excitement I was very happy and eagerfulto taste the food. This can be considered the interaction with the physical world. My senses suchas eyes, touch helped me to predict that the food was good. After looking at such delicious foodseveral thoughts emerged in my mind. A cognitive process leads to several imaginations.Thoughts such regarding taste of food and what I will order after having that dish occurs in mymind. I also linked my observations of physical world with cognitive elements such as memory. Iremembered that last time when I had that food it was very delicious.However, when I stir the soup to taste I observe that there was a lizard in the soup. Itleads to an immediate shock and I was completely blank. I immediately called manager andasked him to look into the matter and to refund my fee as soon as possible. I was quite angry andsuddenly my mind began to overflow with variety of thoughts. For instance I began to thoughtthat what would have happened if I had consumed that soup and is this type of service isprovided at restaurant at which I have been regular visitor. This type of thoughts and memoriesspoiled my mood and I became really upset and aggressive. At the same moment I began toremember statistics and statements of several people who complained of the degraded quality offood and how such type of food caused serious health issue. I recalled all the related informationand legislations associated with such type of poor customer service.My observations of the lizard in the food helped me to analyse the actual truth whichimmediately reacted with the cognitive processes. When the food was not arrived the interior ofthe restaurant was tempting me. At that time also my memories were making me happy anddelighted that I was expecting that when I will experience reality or the soup it will be as per myexpectations. However, when my expectations broke at the same time my cognitive process1
changed in accordance with the physical world. Suddenly the changed thoughts began to interactand find references with the information.I accumulated with huge volume of thoughts such as harmful effects of eating food,possible actions which I can take against restaurant and how serious the problem is. I alsorealised that all the physical observations were associated with my cognitive process which atone or the other moment was affected by my information gain. In the past also I have observedor witness such events which leads to the development of statistics and references related to foodpoisoning or poor quality of food.Thus, physical and cognitive worlds have interactive relation with each other andcognitive process kept changing on the basis of physical observations. The cognitive andinformation world also has bidirectional relations but the process does not occur simultaneous.For example with the arrival of food my cognitive process changed rapidly however the fearrelated to food poisoning and legal actions was not the result of event. Instead, the informationwas result of similar events which happened in the past. The knowledge and information areoften shared on different occasions.However, the same relation does not exist between first and third world. Since theinformation is verified and based upon validated statistics and documents the information doesnot require support from the physical evidences. Though the physical observations can triggerthe related content stored in the information world but the immediate changes in the physicalworld cannot form the valid information. Thus, it can be said that the interaction between all thethree worlds help individuals to accomplish several actions. For instance when I sensedsomething wrong my explicit knowledge that it can harm my health triggers the variousmemories. Those memories and experiences recalled the associated information related to theissue.The information not only influenced my actions but also had impact on how the realitywas observed and actions were taken. Like the legal perspective which I presented to themanager of restaurant forced them to take apologise for their mistake and to repay my bills. Theexperience also served as the strong foundation for the new information such as in future if Ihave to face similar situations then what actions I can take and how I can use my knowledge todeal with the situation. It is very important to link physical world and cognitive process and toreview the senses. Though the process is natural and spontaneous but is influenced by several2
