Knowledge alone, awareness, is one thing, its another thing to do something
with it, its another thing to let it shape and guide your life and your
experiences. Many people think they can live their life however they
want because in the end they will be saved, and some of those people
are people with great awareness. Sometimes we do anything to fool
and keep ourselves from living with the truth.
There probably are as many ways to define 'enlightenment' as they are ways to define 'beautiful' or 'intelligent'. Many, many ways. I personally don't see it as a final anything but closer to a beginning.
