A Unified Field Theory of Design - What is wisdom?

"Wisdom is the most vague and intimate level of understanding. It is much more abstract and philosophical than other levels and less is known about how to create or effect it. Wisdom is a kind of "meta-knowledge" of processes and relationships gained through experiences. It is the result of contemplation, evaluation, retrospection, and interpretation--all of which are particularly personal processes. We cannot create wisdom like we can data and information, and we cannot share it with others like we can with knowledge. We can only create experiences that offer opportunities and describe processes. Ultimately, it is an understanding that must be gained by one's self."

Is this technical author embued with postmodernism?
