Lao Tzu 5

“To attain knowledge, add things everyday. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.”

We can never attain ultimate knowledge as there are an infinite number of things to know. We can attain ultimate wisdom when we remove all our knowledge and are left knowing nothing. Nothing is what everything is before it is and before time begins. Thus, knowing nothing is knowing the fountainhead of everything. Moreover, knowing nothing, we can see things as they are; not in the context of our knowledge (preconceived notions, generalizations, descriptions and stories).
