"Who is the happy Warrior? Who is he That every man in arms should wish to be? —It is the generous Spirit, who, when brought Among the tasks of real life, hath wrought Upon the plan that pleased his boyish thought: Whose high endeavours are an inward light That makes the path before him always bright; Who, with a natural instinct to discern What knowledge can perform, is diligent to learn; Abides by this resolve, and stops not there, But makes his moral being his prime care; Who, doomed to go in company with Pain, And Fear, and Bloodshed, miserable train! Turns his necessity to glorious gain; In face of these doth exercise a power Which is our human nature's highest dower: Controls them and subdues, transmutes, bereaves Of their bad influence, and their good receives: By objects, which might force the soul to abate Her feeling, rendered more compassionate;"

-William Wordsworth

Each and every day of our lives we continue to learn, grow and educate ourselves on the things we like to refer to as the unknown. These facts that a person is not aware of prior to being informed of them are simply due to the lack of knowledge or motivation to know this information. For instance, if one works in the music industry they are more likely to know about certain details that go into planning a concert or producing an album.

“The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you." ―B.B. King

The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realizes, the less I know." ―Michel Legrand
Learning The Unknown

On the other hand, when talking to someone who is in the medical field, the likelihood of them knowing that information is slim to none. Instead, the doctor, nurse or orthodontist is going to be knowledgeable on how to performs surgeries, draw blood or complete check-up appointments. Although this is one major part of the unknown there are other aspects that play a huge role in not being extremely knowledgeable in certain fields, activities or events are a simple idea that the world is one large place. On a daily basis, a new invention is being created. Scientists are exploring. Doctors are curing. The list goes on and on. With that being said, how could one know everything?

It is just quite impossible. Even though it seems to be unfortunate that we would never be able to know everything and anything, it is almost beneficial to a person. It makes that individual unique. Doctors know how to perform surgery on people for a reason. They went to school and became educated on the topic they desired. Without any schooling, the lack of knowledge would be so low that putting on a bandaid could be the maximum effort of a person before seeking medical attention. This is why it is essential that we as people interact with others in different fields or industries of the world.

Even though it's not possible to become as knowledgeable as the person one is talking too, there is a lot to be learned and gained from a friendship or even a simple conversation. These experiences and interactions are the pure reason why knowledge spreads throughout. If it wasn't for interaction there would be an extreme lack of communication causing a halt in all knowledge. Whether one learns how to cook pasta, needlepoint a bag or make a robot. These are all tools that will be needed at a future point in time even though they are all on different extremes. Now, there are many ways one can stay updated on the newest talks of the town.

With the easiest tool being something we humans love to rely on, the Internet. The World Wide Web is the greatest tool known to mankind. It has everything and anything available for users with step by step directions and explanations for days. It is a tool that should be used on a more educational level since it is one item that can provide the known to the unknown. If a fun fact isn't known, look it up. If a mathematical formula isn't known, look it up. Become knowledgeable especially since the information is right at our fingertips.
