Pandora’s Veil of Ignorance

There was the Door to which I found no key; There was the Veil through which I might not see.

- Omar Khayyam (Persian Mathematician)

The Holy Part of the Key is Unnecessary — The Axiomatic planksip Möbius

Pandora’s Veil of Ignorance

Inspired by Omar Khayyam (1048–1131)’s quote, “There was the Door to which I found no key; There was the Veil through which I might not see.”. The titled responsion is describing an ignorance of sorts, however perverse that sounds.

I am going to counterpoint ignorance with Erwin Schrödinger’s concept of negative entropy. To some degree, we can know what we don’t know. If we are surprised by what we discover then vistas cascade unknown consequences. Schrödinger’s 1944 classic, What is Life? is worth the read.
