"Imagine for a moment that you are omniscient. Endowed with such knowledge, you would completely understand how the world 'works.' You would completely understand how light works, how molecules and atoms work, how genetics work, how tectonic plates work, and how the universe came into existence. There would be nothing about the social or natural worlds that you would not understand in its entirety." (01/06/12)
