Truth from facts?

True knowledge requires deep contemplation rather than jet-setting around the globe on “fact-finding” trips. 

「不出戶,知天下;不窺牖,見天道;其出彌遠,其知彌少;是以聖人不行而知,不見而名,不為而成。」
You don’t have to step outside your door,
To know the ways of the world.
You don’t have to look out your window,
To see the Way of Heaven.
The further you go,
The less you know.
So, the wise:
Know without traveling around;
Understand without seeing;
And accomplish everything through effortless action.
