It has been famously said by a number of great thinkers that a harrowing tragedy of our time, and all times, is that we don’t know what we don’t know. We are totally unaware of the myriad things we… are totally unaware of. Perhaps illustrated best by the allegory of the cave, demonstrated more recently in the real world by the wide scientific acceptance of string theory, which flips most of traditional physics on its head. The amount of things we don’t know is probably immense. Of course there are a bunch of questions we know we don’t know: what happens when we die? Is there a god? Is there intelligent life on other planets? What was there before there was the big bang? Are there other dimensions, other universes? Then there are the unknown unknowns. The questions we haven’t even thought to ask. Humans are inventive, curious and creative but we can’t investigate things that aren’t apparent to be investigated. That likely explains much of the appeal of science fiction, fantasy and imaginative story-telling. They offer us little visions of what might be out there for the taking, if we’re just brave enough to wonder with all our might. [Ryan Nimmo]
