It's impossible to not conceptualise the non-conceptual.
I shall not waste my time trying, then.

Knowledge is but an illusion, although I can't say I know that for sure.

There is no direct access to anything known, because all that is known is known by the consciousness you already are.

Any inference is second-hand knowledge, illusory since the only knowing there is - is consciousness.

Is there a name for the concept of making it up as you go along?

Just about everything you have said is rubbish. Mostly self defeating and in contradiction.

The only truth available to us, that we have complete access to is our own self bias.

Your grapes are sour, and you are spitting out the only thing that is worth anything; seeds of knowledge for which you have no respect.

With all due respect the grape is the seed. No need to keep reinventing the wheel of life, unless the desire to ride the wheel is there, which it is, else what need for knowledge? but to invent a knower. Of course knowledge is valuable, without knowledge there is no you.

Your problem is that you are trying to invent a wheel but do not understand the concept of a circle.
Let me tell you a secret. Square wheels don't work, especially when adorned with the accretions of mumbo-jumbo.

I have no idea what you are attempting to inform me.

And since anything I say is mumbo-jumbo to you, then is there any actual point in this discussion at all?

I'll be happy to bow out of it any time.

We only know and have access to our own self bias opinions which carry their own experiential truths.

If you don't like the smell of mine, then no one is forcing you to smell, smell your own shit.

Yes. And that is the nub of the problem

Shit is shit. But why are you trying to polish yours and dump in on the Forum?
