Feeling Ignorant

“The fastest growing entity today is information. Information is expanding ten times faster than the growth of any other manufactured or natural product on this planet. According to a calculation world-wide information has been increasing at the rate of 66% per year for many decades. Compare that explosion to the rate of increase in even the most prolific manufactured stuff – like concrete, or paper — which averages only 7% annually over decades…Yet the paradox of science is that every answer breeds at least two new questions. More answers, more questions. Telescopes and microscopes expanded not only what we knew, but what we didn’t know. They allowed us to spy into our ignorance. New and better tools permit us new and better questions…Thus even though our knowledge is expanding exponentially, our questions are expanding exponentially faster…In other words, science is a method that chiefly expands our ignorance rather than our knowledge.” (from www.kk.org)

The more i’m studying the more i feel ignorant. The more i’m browsing the more i found new things i should know. Am i becoming more and more ignorant because i’m opening too many doors?

Ze french is right!
