There are some things you see and some thigns you don't see, those things that you see aren't real and those things that you don't see become to imaginable to even exist.

Close your eyes, and see not, close your eyes, and see all.
As you see nothing, nothing is the all of the sum, of what you see.
Seeing nothing, sees everything, you then see.

Is it all black, no colour, which is what you know as real, then real it its.

A blind human can not see, yet with 'closed eyes'; at least (s)he sees it all. :wink:

My math is pretty rusty, but "I know I don't know" doesn't seem like a paradox to me.

a + b = c

If "a" represents you, "b" represents knowledge, and "c" represents the sum (you possessing knowledge), then the value of "c" cannot be established without the value of "b."  Knowing you don't know means you understand you're missing information.  Nothing contradictory about that...makes perfect sense to me :smile:

I know, (i got knowledge?) I don't know. (i do not got knowledge?)

having knowledge,  does not contradict, not having it?

Woah, good point.  After smoking a bowl, I looked at my example again and found a different value for "b."  If "b" represents knowledge, then what is knowledge?  Aside from the exact words of Webster, it's an idea, a vague concept and I can't compare it with a person.  There isn't an exact comon denominator.  I shouldn't have tried to add the two.
