«Every solution of a problem raises new unsolved problems; the more so the deeper the original problem and the bolder solution.The more we learn about the world, and the deeper our learning, the more conscious, specific, and articulate will be our knowledge of what we do not know, our knowledge of our ignorance. For this, indeed, is the main source of our ignorance--the fact that our knowledge can be only finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.» (Popper 1963: p. 38)
