Black Holes of Ignorance

Posted in Analogy, Metaphor, Videos

Scientists have recently discovered two new black holes that are 10 billions times the size of our sun.

10 billion times!

The discovery is quite impressive but scientists still don’t know much about these black holes.

In this sense, the discovery is a fitting metaphor for our knowledge: As impressive as our knowledge is, our ignorance (of things we don’t know) will always be greater.

Perhaps, our ignorance is even 10 billions times greater than the “light” of our knowledge.

It’s enough to keep a person humble–very humble.
