What do we really know?

The Japanese have a proverb about experts who think they are above making mistakes:

'saru mo ki kara ochiru'

The phrase literally translates as 'even monkeys fall from trees.' In English, the closest adage may be 'pride comes before a fall.'

What we know is only what we know. We can research and look into the dark recesses of history, and our own logic, and still come up short.
