The other day I was speaking to someone about what any one person can really "know" in the grand scheme of things, and this is the answer that I come down to...

We can't know anything with any degree of certainty. It may sound sad, maybe even a little depressing, but really, it is humbling. This way we can all walk around "knowing" that none of us really know anything and maybe we can relax a little and not take ourselves so seriously. We are all a bunch of fools after all. We may not like to act like it or even admit it, but it is the truth. I'm a fool, you're a fool, he's a fool, the Queen is a fool, the President is a fool. Ahem. We are all fools. And again, I think I can prove it, but I don't really know. I am a fool after all.

So the reason I say this is because when dealing with infinity there is no frame of reference to judge anything from, there are no ups, no downs, no lefts, or rights. Since the Universe is infinite the amount of knowledge to be learned is also infinite. So there is no possible way to measure what anyone "knows" simply because there is no measuring infinity. There is always something else to learn. It is the pomposity of people that like to pretend that we know anything at all. And to complicate things even more, we live in an ever evolving world. So what we once knew yesterday may be out of date tomorrow. The computers of old are nothing more than relics in the museum of human ignorance. 

So there you have it. We don't know anything, and those who try and claim that they know anything... Well they are the biggest fools of us all, because they have fooled themselves into a higher opinion of themselves than what is reality.

AJ, CEO & King of Fools
