As Far As I Know: Video Poetry

As Far As I Know – By Dan Fonseca

As far as I know, I know what I know and the more I know the more I know I don’t know.

I also know I don’t know what I don’t know but I know what I’d like to know. The trick is knowing what I don’t know and then knowing it.

Tell those who don’t know what they need to know and hopefully they’ll tell you things you need to know as well.

There are some things I know that I wish I didn’t know and there are some things people know that I’d like to know but then again I don’t know what I don’t know.

And I know that makes perfect sense to me :)

    I know, you know, I know you know I know,… and infinite round of these is called “common knowledge” in game theory. So, are you in the camp that thinks it is better to love and lost than never loved at all or in the camp that believes ignorance is bliss?

    • Dan Fonseca says :

      Great question!

      For me it has got to be, “It’s better to love and to have lost than never loved at all.” It reminds me of a post I did on responsibility. Though its not a perfect equation, the post went something like this:

      Knowledge = Power
      Power = Responsibility
      so…
      Does Knowledge = Responsibility?

      Does this mean the more you know the more that is required of you? I believe people who are afraid of this responsibility will opt into the “ignorance is bliss” camp.

      Thanks again Daniel :)
