Arrogance vs ignorance

I know that I know nothing vs everything

The Greek philosopher Socrates (c.470–399 BC) once wrote: "For I was conscious that I knew practically nothing...". Later, Plato changed that into: I know that I know nothing (Wiki). Probably, Artificial Intelligence aims to know (most of) everything. Is it even possible to know everything?? In my view, the expansion of the Universe is related to storing ALL...

Exit strategy (2)

I suppose that every commitment has an exit strategy. In Love, it’s called a breakup. In Knowledge, it’s about cancellations of contracts (eg, business, divorce, subscriptions).

Spain

Spain has a new socialist government after its leader (and Prime Minister) made an amnesty deal with convicted separatists, hiding outside Spain. This new Spanish government will be a minority government. Spanish courts may, however, still block this political amnesty deal. Donald Trump has similar intentions: he hopes to win the 2024 U.S. presidential election and...
