Learning more about the world doesn’t lead to a point closer to a final destination

 — whose existence is nothing but a hopeful assumption anyway —

but to more questions and mysteries.

The more we know

the more exposed we are to our ignorance

and the more we know to ask. 

This realization should open doors

not close them

since it makes the search for knowledge an open-ended pursuit


endless romance with the unknown.

Marcelo Gleiser
