If you can read this you are indeed patient!
"...if by 'knowing' you mean that you are in possession of some absolute truth, then there is precious little, if anything, that qualifies."


If there is no use for the term "absolute truth," then we should not have it. I am content to
include any knowledge which a person from anywhere in the universe and during any billion year period (bentury) would recognize and agree upon with persons of any other...if they had the ability.

Some information about relationships exists.
Relationships between elements in the periodic table will, apparently,
remain the same, in context, even if
further information makes obsolete our current version
of atoms and electrons.
So in a sense, the knowledge is absolute only in the relative sense, which is also what I think of absolute time.

Above, you said, I must do something about that boredom! What do you think I should do?
