know = physical experience

If one vividly knows about about something, it does not mean that they necessarily WENT or DID something of that. For example, let's say that a student was researching about World War Two. They read about the Holocaust and concentration camps. Did they GO to a concentration camp as a prisoner? Probably not. One can know about something but not have to view it firsthand.

Also, your solution for "know" is invalid. The statement know = physical experience means that "know" can only lead to one solution. If you know that 2 + 2 = 4, it would not necessarily be "physical experience" per se, because you cannot experience math, but you can know about what it is.

Oops.... Well.... I shall make my rebutal to the remark on coffee. You CAN know it's hot without touching it.

Physical Observation: Steam
Tests: Thermometer

You do not necessarily have to physically touch coffee by hand or mouth contact. You can see or test out its heat and temperature.
