Knowledge does not necessarily have to have only one plane.

There's scientific knowledge, yes, but there are also other means to know the world. The poetic approach will focus on the emotions the sight provokes on you. Vastness. Warmth. Cruelty. Love. A religious approach will link you to the transcendent and the eternal. A subjective approach could mean anything you want. And so on with anything you can think of.

There's not an only perspective on reality since we are always standing on a point of view, to view it. Changing the point doesn't make reality different, but it can make it mean different things.
