Esoteric, Exoteric

Esoteric: Insider information. Esoteric might be something only comprehensible by the initiated because of specialized jargon or concepts. Metaphorically, it might refer to private or confidential information.

Exoteric: Public (external) knowledge. Exoteric is the information released to the general public.
What is much more essential is that the exoteric approach sees things from below, the esoteric looks down from above.
