Silly Theorem

i) Hypothesis

We assume that all quantities are finite and measurable

Uk = Total knowledge

Ok = Own knowledge

Oi = Own ignorance

Sk = Socrates constant

In an inertial reference frame, Sk ≈ 1, after all, Socrates just knew that he knew nothing.

ii) Thesis

Ok = (Uk - Oi) + Sk

iii) Demonstration

I do not know...

iv) Corollary 1

Socrates was almost ignorant.

v) Corollary 2

From (iii) it follows that I am less ignorant than Socrates.

vi) Corollary 3

If Ok < 0 It means you're a complete moron, you know less than Socrates.

Propulsion systems can't work forever, and (eg) photons from the sun, do more than charge the batteries, transfer momentum, which in turn decreases the speed, gravity does the rest...

Silly answer: Unfortunately, eventually, most will fall.

As life goes by

At first you believe in Santa Claus.

Then you stop believing in Santa Claus.

Finally oneself is Santa Claus.

Merry Christmas

There are things that I know that I do not know.

There are things that I know I do know.

There are things that I do not know that I know (Forgot them).

There are thing that I do nott know that I do not know. These I worry about.
