"Many people simply become walking libraries. They have thousands of books recorded in their brains like computers, but that doesn't mean they have actually experienced the Self. The Self cannot be known by theory alone. By merely thinking, no one has ever understood the One that is beyond the mind. Only when you transcend the mind can you understand it. This is where Yoga differs from most other psychological approaches. They usually believe you have to understand everything with the mind and that beyond it you cannot understand anything. They stop there, but Yoga claims there is a knowledge possible without the mind. All that you know through the mind is limited and conditioned. How is the limited mind to understand the unlimited One? Only by transcending it and getting into the unlimited." The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali - in discussion of Sutra #1 Book Two.
