Concept Differentiation Game

Concept Differentiation Game
The rules of this game are as follows:

Rule 1: The OP starts by introducing two different concepts and asks the difference between the two.

Rule 2: The second poster replies by answering with another concept that they think illustrates the difference between those two concepts.

Rule 3: The second poster then takes that concept and adds an additional concept and asks the difference between the concept they answered the question with and the other new one that they introduced.
  • The third poster then answers with yet another concept and asks the difference between it and yet another concept.

  • The fourth poster then answers with yet another concept and asks the difference between it and yet another concept.

  • The fifth poster than answers with yet another concept and asks the difference between it and yet another concept ... and so on.

If this is confusing it will seem much more simple if I provide an example ... where Jack and Jill play the game together ... with Jack going first:

Jack: What is the difference between sex and violence?
Jill: Harm. What is the difference between harm and hurt?
Jack: Emotion. What is the difference between emotion and passion?
Jill: Extent. What is the difference between extent and degree?
Jack: A diploma. What is the difference between . . .


And so on.

Note: the last answer was humorous rather than serious and involved a pun. Both humorous and serious answers are acceptable ... which makes this more fun.

I should also point out that you can answer with more than one word if you want to. Try to use a single word if you can, or as few words as possible, but some concepts may need more than one word to be described.

Have fun!

Following rule 1, as the OP, I'll start it off then: what is the difference between experience and wisdom?

If by right you meant opened up a can of philosophical worms (philosophical can of worms?) so no one is sure how to answer it in one word ...
