"To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day."
--Lao Tzu

(Thanks Glycine, I remember you posted this quote recently, I assume it is from the Tao Te Ching. It fits in with this topic of not knowing.)

I love that quote. Thank you for posting!
by thinking of something you create an entity and by thinking of nothing you create another. Let such erroneous thinking perish utterly, and then nothing will remain for you to go seeking!
