Reading a Wired Blog post showing that scientists have confirmed the existence of dark matter. What was previously speculated has been confirmed -- the universe is mostly (75%) dark matter.
So what does that mean? Are we one step closer to knowing everything there is to know?
People talk about the end of knowledge -- that reach that state sometime soon. Moore's Law says we'll be at our smallest possible technological increment in a decade or so. Further, we look to the Technological singularity for complete paradigm shift.
But does that mean we will know *everything* there is to know? Perhaps, as with dying, we will pass into a realm that we cannot know without entering. If we don't know that we don't know this, how can we possibly say that we'll know everything.
There's plenty more to learn.
