Not Knowing Things
Jul 16 2008
Richard Feynman has approximate answers, possible beliefs, and different degrees of certainties about different things.
"I have approximate answers
And possible beliefs
And different degrees of certainty
About different things.

But I'm not absolutely sure of anything.

And there are many things I don't know anything about!

Such as,
Whether it means anything to ask, "Why we're here?"
And what the question might mean.

I might think a little about it,
But if I can't figure it out then I go to something else

But I don't have to know an answer.

I don't feel frightened by not knowing things.

By being lost in the mysterious universe
Without having any purpose.

Which is the way it really is,
As far as I can tell, 

It doesn't frighten me" ~ Richard Feynman
