Let me see if I can remember this correctly about “knowing”. There’s we know that we know, we know we don’t know, we don’t know what we know and we don’t know that we don’t know. I think that’s right, but the main reason I’m writing these out is because of that stickler at the end:

We don’t know what we don’t know

For someone like me who feels safest (okay, and perhaps pacified when thinking that I’m more in control when “I know”) knowing the whole concept of not knowing what I don’t know is a pretty scary thought. I suppose that I have to surrender that there may be quite a few things that I don’t know that I don’t know and accept that more will be revealed when the time is right.

I think my fear may be more about other people who don’t know what they don’t know

Because some people can have a great impact on my life with just what they know along with what they know they don’t know but don’t care to know much less not knowing what they don’t know. Take the Geneva Atom Smasher:

GENEVA – The world’s largest atom smasher conducted its first experiments at conditions nearing those after the Big Bang, breaking its own record for high-energy collisions with proton beams crashing into each other Tuesday at three times more force than ever before.

I already know that I don’t know so much about this project and its impact and repercussions as well as possible new discoveries that it paralyzes my mind in mid-synopsis to consider what I don’t know that I don’t know. It’s times like this that I settle back into a good long meditation into the peace and calm of connecting with the Universe (God) and pray that there are scientists and researchers involved who care about us too and are not just out for the glory of discovery for discovery’s sake.

Now to go do some things that I do know like cuddling with my dogs, taking a shower with yummy smelling soap and heading off to school in my convertible with the sunlight pouring in … that is something that I know how to do today…..
