Law #1 : Any law for the operation of the universe will eventually be superseded by a better or more refined law, including this one.

Law #2 : In science, what we don't know we don't know expands faster than what we know we don't know which expands faster than what we know.

Law #3 : What we know is based on distinctions we create or learn from others. Knowing is the aftermath of creating distinctions. The distinctions are somehow materialized by ourselves from what we know we don't know and sometimes from what we don't know we don't know.

Law #4 : I don't know how all this works.

Mark Twain had it right:
"It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so."

Expect the unexpected. --JJM
