Knowing and Not Knowing
|Music: Fugue #8 from the Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 2.
By J.S. Bach. Sequenced by Yo Tomita.
|--What one knows is always less than what one doesn't know.
--Therefore, one must place more importance on what one doesn't know than upon what one knows.
--But how can one place importance on what one doesn't know?
--First, and most tellingly, by being humble about what one knows.
--Second, by being skeptical about what anyone else claims to know.
--Third, by investing large amounts of one's time, energy, and resources into knowing more.
