Knowledge constantly expands
but remains finite forever.

Ignorance constantly shrinks
but remains infinite forever.

Would you then say that Knowledge comes from Ignorance?

We can view Knowledge and Ignorance either as independent categories, or as inter-related entities.Socrates claimed that learning new things from the unknown is quite impossible. He believed that all we know is innate, a priori knowledge, transferred from past lives.
