Do you know the difference between knowledge and consciousness?

I ain’t speaking of psycology or sth like that. I mean, is the “knowledge” the knowledge of what happens (of what goes on) and “consciousness” the knowledge of why what happens (what goes on) happens (or goes on)?
According to the theory of knowledge you adopt, what are those things for you?

  1. Nope I don’t know the difference between knowledge and conscious, I understand that I am aware of the knowledge that is being pass around with out my consciousness, but what I dont understand is how one can be conscious without knowledge. I would assume that a rock is not conscious and in refection its not that knowledgeable, but one can obtain knowledge from the information it with holds. Wouldn’t that make knowledge and conscious the same thing? Because to obtain knowledge you do need to have some sort of consciousness about you.

  2. Knowledge involves possessing information that accords with reality. Consciousness, on the other hand, is an awareness. I can know about consciousness, and I can be conscious of my knowledge, so they relate to one another.
    I would disagree that consciousness is “the knowledge of why what happens (what goes on) happens (or goes on).” That seems to suggest that consciousness is an ability to understand the meaning of knowledge–but that doesn’t seem to be the role of consciousness at all. Instead, “why what happens … happens” is understanding–a type of meta-knowledge.
