So, the question remains if we are influenced by the knowledge of things in which we have no earthly idea of its existence and the knower of such knowledge hasn't the slightest idea of its effect on us, how is this possible? Can knowledge effect us in unconscious ways? Or, can the ignorance of knowledge still have its effect on us?

Firstly, I believe there are many actions in which we unconsciously commit; to say we are aware of every action belonging to ourselves is to confess we have a complete knowledge of all things effected by us. In other words, we could no longer claim ignorance of the way in which consequences created by us presented themselves. We should take full responsibility and culpability for all actions performed by us, whether intentionally or accidentally.

Secondly, to say only the knowledge in which we possess influences our decisions is to say all actions are done, intentionally.

Whether claiming to know all that which we effect or all that effects us, our being conscious of it affords to us a responsibility in which we cannot escape.

Our lives are made of that which we know and that which we don't, culpability and innocence; there are greater minds that effect us, and there are lesser minds in which we effect; these things are done, both consciously and unconsciously. We are both creators and that which is created.
