while the mockery of that concept goes on... i simply want to point out that it is true in the sense that individuals who grow arrogant with what they know sometimes simply divide things into a dichotomy of the known and the the unknown... when in actuality it should be the known... the unknown... AND the unknowable.

I think that relates back to that other topic where I was posting the our subjective, our objective....and then the truly objective

our minds our limited, there is shit out there we can't possibly understand....plus the fact that our science is limited to what we experience

if there needs to be a concrete examples....
no matter how long we continue to attempt to discover whether pi ever starts repeating in the decimal places or whether it goes on forever without a pattern is unknowable.
no matter what digit a supercomputer is at in attempting this problem, it will never be conclusively solved. even though we can go online and look up the 2,700,000th digit of pi, how much closer are we really than what the Greeks knew was an approximation at 22/7?
unknowable.
