love to you big sister!

Awwwwww. Now I must forgive you for trying to ignore me! <br />
<br />
You have such a way with words, my African Warrior!

never true, big sis.<br />
<br />
You are like the sunshine in winter - welcome and unmistakably there. It cannot be ignored and warms everywhere that it touches.<br />
<br />

bcj, I used to know what I didn't know, but I forgot. I know I forgot, because I remembered. But I couldn't remember what I forgot. HELP!!!!

Hi Sir b!<br />
<br />
I loved re-reading this story and all the comments and remembering the fun with the old gang...<br />
but.....<br />
<br />
now I'm obsessing again about what I don't know and don't know to ask because I have no information about what I know nothing of..... <br />
Oh darn.<br />
<br />
love<br />
d

if we don't know that we don't know, then we won't think about it. hehehe

But when do we know what we don't know? I guess that's why it's called what we don't know, because we may never know it.

hehehe.<br />
<br />
datura. you know one more word today albeit in german. and to think - this morning you did not know that you did not know this.<br />
<br />
herr wanya - you are inspirational. i suppose that happens automatically when we walk the earth for as long as you have. keep posting your stories - at least one each week.<br />
<br />
lady TG - thanks for the help. nice to know that you are always in my team<br />
<br />
lady callas - i will need time to decipher your comments. <br />
<br />
hehehe

Wanya!!!!!!!!!

Or even..beware!

Keep an eye on ;)

Help me Trailguide, which meaning is it? Keep an eye on or pay attention to??????? hehe<br />
<br />
auf jdn/etw aufpassen to watch sb/sth, to keep an eye on sb/sth (=hüten) to look after or to mind sb/sth (=Aufsicht führen) to supervise sb/sth, (bei Examen) to invigilate sb <br />
b (=aufmerksam sein, Acht geben) to pay attention <br />
pass auf!, aufgepasst! look, watch (=sei aufmerksam) pay attention (=Vorsicht) watch out, mind (out) <br />

<br />

lady d<br />
<br />

<br />

<br />
hmmm, i shall have to contemplate now that i know that, maybe i am in no danger. <br />
hehehe<br />
b

hehe. Good one, Wanya!!!!

who ever said that they broke the mould after they made her?????now there are two of them. <br />
<br />
ok, so she is part scientist. maybe that's good. it's a bit like having rum with aspirin. i hope.<br />
<br />
oh! hi. omg there are people here, listening in.<br />
<br />
hehe<br />
b

Sir b, I see you've met my dear friend Swan. She'll keep you on your toes, you scientist, you! She's partly a scientist, partly spooky like me ( as you like, teasingly, to say) and totally wise and awesome.

miladies all und herr wanya<br><br />

this is more of a question or a postulate than a statement of truth or knowledge.<br><br />
<br><br />
it has helped me to identify thinkers here with whom i can comfortably interact.<br><br />
<br><br />
the clause is open to interpretation of course. <br><br />
<br><br />
I read the following into it and this is not definitive at all (even though i wrote/mused it)<br><br />
<br><br />
in the simplest sense - when having figured something which was unclear before then the problem is solved.<br><br />
<br><br />
on the next level - identifying the questions that need to be answered (when you know what you don't know) is the essence of solving your problem.<br><br />
<br><br />
help- come on genii. don't let me do this alone.<br><br />

bcj (hello there!) it seems there is another fountain of wisdom here at E.P. which I'm only now discovering--what a delight! <br />
<br />
This really resonates with me. Thanks for sharing your simple/profound insight. <br />
<br />
I also gotta say that I 'get' what Datura is saying too... That obsessing over such evasive insights. My brother and I would sit outdoors for hours trying to find ONE single thing that was ALWAYS TRUE no matter what. It was hard not to find a hole in the certainty if we looked far enuf.<br />
<br />
And trailguide, I offer my deep respect and congratulations to you on your great discovery. I share your joy <br />
<br />
~~ smiles ~~ swan

tg you are precious!!!<br />
<br />
b

It's exciting to know how little i know.

lady destry<br />
<br />
a fountain of wisdom you are.<br />
<br />
Wanya<br />
<br />
i like you already. it will take me a year to decode your deep philosophy.<br />
<br />
b

oh my.<br />
<br />
hehehe

See, I told you I don't even know what questions to ask;)

hehehe

b.....I'm still thinking about it.....faffing around and obsessing....oh darn. I need to bin it!

will it help if i say that i'm sorry.<br />
<br />
hehehe

I remember thinking when I was a child that I knew so little about a given subject that I didn't even know what questions to ask! That really used to bother me and I would at times actually obsess about it! How do you know what you don't know!!! Oh my, I hope I don't start thinking about that again....

hi lady lotusblossom.<br />
<br />
i think, make that i know, that it is impossible for humans not to learn something each day. It might be something small but it is always something new.<br />
<br />
b

if you have learned nothing new in any given day than that day is lost.... we do not know everything and those that profess to are less wise than those who admit that they are still learning.
