Do we really know ourselves?

This post is not about answers, it’s about questions.

Do we?

Or is life just a lifelong quest of finding out who we are?

I recently watched a video. It has nothing to do with life, but it certainly got me thinking on the concept of infinity.

Think back to the middle part of the video…

Over and over again, you will see that that guy kept talking about how imperceptible infinity is for us human beings. We live for such a short period of time, and we perceive a minuscule part of reality.

If this holds true for our outer world, does it hold true for our inner world as well?

Just like how we see only a very small part of the electromagnetic spectrum, do we only see a very small part of ourselves?

And here’s a bigger question; can we only see a very small part of ourselves? We may never uncover the secrets of the universe. It’s just too damn big. Our minds, as compared to the universe is a tiny, tiny thing. But does the size make it any easier to perceive it?

Will our outer and inner world remain a mystery forever?
