    It seems to me that knowlegde conventionally is the pursuit of certainty rather than a willingness to open into the mystery; and very often is the product of an intellect than seeks constant validation of it's usefulness.

    But then when we look at much of what all the great seekers say it is much more about the pleasure of asking itself, which leads to the humbling conclusion of not knowing rather than knowing.
