“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” – Aristotle

# – # – #  

But, BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), you can NOT know yourself.

At different points in time, you are a different person.

At different  levels (i.e, id, ego and superego), you are a different person.

And, depending upon how you define yourself visa vi dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom), you are different person.

So, with all deference to Señor Aristotle, and he must have been a high IQ guy, “knowing yourself” is unknowable.

imho!
