the world cannot be understood cannot be understood

We love to understand.
We love to feel we have a firm understanding of "the world"
(another suspicious word)

This was as true in Ancient Greece, the Middle Ages as it is today.

"But surely we know more about the world than we did in ancient times!"
But we have a minimal awareness of what we do not know.
And even less awareness of things we cannot know.
((Much) more on this later.)
