The End of Human Knowledge

09Mar09

In general, human knowledge is all of the knowledge and research we have put together as a race. We’ve learned all about our own bodies, other animals, and even space. But what’s really interesting about all this is where it ends.
Where does our knowledge end? What truly are our limits as advanced humans?

Here’s a fun experiment that will really hurt your brain. Think of all the colours in the world. Think of everything you’ve seen, think about it’s colours. Go through each colour, imagining it in your head. Now try and think of another colour that you have never seen before. Make up a colour, just imagine it in your head, a sea of this new colour.

It is not possible.

Sure you can mix red and yellow or something, but that’s just going to make a pinkish colour, which is already there. Truth is, we can only see so many colours. The spectrum isn’t any bigger.

Here’s another one: think of how big the universe is. We live in the Milky Way galaxy, which is just a tiny little dot in the universe. Where does the universe end? Does it ever end? Can it be measured? How big is it really?

Your brain must hurt already.

And how about this one? What is it like to be dead?

Those are just some thoughts I’ve been having lately. Ever since seeing this show on the discovery channel about space, I keep thinking about it.

Sorry for not posting a lot. It’s March now though, and after this week of school it’s March break. This blog has been going on for quite a while. And yeah, I’m aware of how horribly written this post is.
