Dear all,


My question is a bit philosophical.
Can humanity reach complete/total/absolute knowledge and control of the world, where there is nothing new to be known?!


Thnx :)

A = complete knowledge & control of the world
B = nothing new to be known

A and B true = possible
A true and B false = not possible (you can't know everything and still have more to be known)
A false and B true = possible (you don't have complete knowledge/control, but you've reached the limits of what can be known)
A false and B false = possible
