the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Maybe it's the cold medicine...

that I am taking, but this question kinda makes sense:

How do you know everything if in order to know everything you must know nothing and if you know nothing then how can you know everything?

or something like that, anyway.

It's from a student in Bedford, Kentucky and I'll tell you: today, I am NOT smarter than a fifth grader.

  1. It's a sly question. ;D I think it's better to accept the fact that we do not know everything and that's all. But if you insisted I'd argue with the question itself. In theory, nothing isn't a thing, so when we mean everything, it includes every THING (while we decided nothing isn't a thing, so we don't include it), right?
