Obsessed with KNOWING

Question I heard: Why are we obsessed with knowing? We are obsessed with knowing due to self β€” preservation. The desire to know is to preserve self.

We are obsessed with knowing a vast amount of information because we are trying to PRESERVE.

What does that really mean? To me it means that you are trying to save yourself. For example, you knowing how to fight, how to cook, how to garden, dangers of certain foods all lead to you preserving yourself. You knowing these things will help you preserve your life.
