Will humans ever be able to know everything in the universe?

  • Of Course It Would Be Possible..

    Humans Are Smart Yes, I Know You Can't Read People's minds but you can mix 2 facts and boom there is going to be 1 more fact
    FOR Example Stars Are Manier Than Sand On Earth And Earth is Small
    If you look on the galaxy That Means We Are Really Small And Tiny To Be Seen NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE

  • It is perfectly possible to know every single thing about this universe

    Those who disagree are unquestionable fools, because they choose to deny an undeniable fact. Human beings already possess approximately 90% of the knowledge in the universe, and I can say with 100% certainty that humanity will eventually know everything about the universe. Human beings, for example, already know exactly how this universe was created: The universe came from nothing, and this is a hardcore undeniable fact. All other theories have been discredited, and this is the only theory.

  • Knowledge of our universe is the next step of human evolution

    In the information age with the internet and technology, no information is destroyed, not only that but it is accessible anywhere at any time to anyone. The growth of knowledge is exponential, as is the advancement of technology, which will continuously speed up our ability to learn. Once we fully merge with technology, time is no longer an issue and we can leave earth to truly discover the truth behind existence.

  • Yes we already know everything, we just haven't connected the dots yet.

    If you know two facts, our minds can figure out and connect to those two facts and form more facts. Over time this will come naturally to understand, do you see how some people can predict the future due to past events? All the information is out there, its just connecting the dots, you would just have to understand how physics works to its complete extent, and everything can be explained.

  • Depends on what context

    Philosophically if you think about it, dead people have learned everything since their entire being has become one with the universe without the distraction of consciousness. But as far as cognitively learning everything goes, only time will determine whether we're capable of that or not. It would be an interesting era where a microscopic part of a universe (people) has become aware of every single thing around it.

  • Even though it seems that the more we know the more there is to know,with the advancement of science

    We seem to be learning things faster and faster due to the ability of inventing machines to help us answer any questions we can think of asking. The only thing that may disagree with this is would be a question we might not be able to think of asking ,if that's possible

  • I side yes

    I side yes because they found every thing in our solar system they can find everything in the universe.
    This takes a bit of explaining. Basically, the Universe was born about 14 billion years ago. That means that we can see only the stars and galaxies whose light has taken less than 14 billion years to get here. Objects whose light would take more than 14 billion years – well, their light has’t got here yet.

  • If we remain on the same track as the last 50 years ,yes definitely.

    We are evolving in terms of knowledge at an ever faster pace. We are beginning to come close to answer some of the biggest questions in the universe. As our technology is advancing we are using better equipment to conduct experiments ,LHC is 1 example . Soon we will be able to understand black holes , dark energy and all the other stuff if we soem mishap does'nt happen that is.

  • Yes, and depending on the definition, humans may already know everything in the universe.

    It is already possible that one could know everything possible in the universe, after first determining the scope of the universe you are talking about. Relatively speaking, this universe is a very small place with some pretty basic laws we all know. Compounding this fact is that each person determines the limitation of their own personal universe and can even compartmentalize data to tune out information that would be "harmful" to that scope. It was not long ago that we knew nothing of what existed beyond this planet. Far beyond that, when first evolving, we knew not much beyond the span of the plains we called a habitat. In each of these cases nothing but the limits of the imagination existed beyond our respective borders. Each place had a definable set of rules, laws, and data. However, it is quite possible that things exist beyond our universe, so it may not be possible to know everything ever possible. With enough effort, a strong-enough super computer, and a deeper understanding of geometry & probability / time & space, learning everything about this universe is absolutely possible.

  • Yes, it is possible that humans could know all there is to know in the universe.

    Anything is possible; some things are just not likely. However, when it comes to speculating on whether humans can know and understand all there is to know about the universe, is a question that could be addressed from not only a scientific perspective but from a spiritual and philosophical perspective as well. Some schools of thought are that due to racial memories all there is to know is known by everyone, the information is just not accessed. So it could be argued based on this ideology humans already know everything there is to know in the universe.

  • Its impossible to know everything the world / universe well end befoor we have time to learn everything

    Idk what this means so fuck it something stuff dik w/e who cares idk umm world to fill this out cuz this needs works so i can post somethign here i just need a few more words like 10 more or so but now after saying how many more i need this is enough

  • The Limits of Human Comprehension

    I believe, were we higher beings, we may understand a large portion of reality. But we could never understand everything, as some things-such as a 'God' figure-would exist outside of our comprehensible reality. In the end, there's no real way to know everything, as much as we'd like to. Besides, were everything to be known, the thrill of discovery would be lost.

  • It's an impossible concept

    Within any given universe it is simply not possible to know or determine all there is to know from within that universe. The following URL makes the case for this theorem quite clearly in fairly understandable and unequivocal terms, without resort to use of esoteric reasoning or heavy duty mathematics.


  • Infinity is impossible

    To know everything? To know what the tree outside looks like exactly? To know the exact placement of its leaves at any given time? To know its exact genetic makeup? To master every art from cooking to sword fighting? To know how many ants there are on earth exactly? To know what it feels like to be ignorant? To speak with God? To know theres no god? To know the exact number of sand granules on every beach on the planet? To know what would happen in very single possible scenario of every single action of every moment of everything that has ever existed since the beginning of anything? Lol sorry for the rant but my answer is haeellll naawww

  • No because no one will be able to figure out what will happen too marrow

    It is not possible. Because no human can know everything or he would be known as the smartest but He will not be able to comprehend with it. All of the knowledge might just give him a stroke. The person that knows all of the knowledge. Will also be studied. And dissected to understand how he knows it.

  • Humans are mathematically unable.

    We don't know everything yet, and we never will. Unless we discover the Grand Unification Theory, we will know everything. But what if the Theory prevents us from knowing it? What if a supreme God won't allow us to know it. It is absurd to think that mere humans, a speck in the universe, can somehow master it and know everything. With extinctions and human errors, we will always be losing information. There is no way to know, much less, understand, everything.

  • You cannot read minds!

    In order to know everything about the entire universe, you would have to make sure everything you know about currently is the absolute truth. Additionally, everyone has a different point of view. To some, the universe is merely as large as the earth potentially. Others see it as it is. Additionally, you would have to know what everyone is thinking at every given moment at any place in time, every word uttered, every single object, particle, and thing that was in any state or position, ever! You would also have to know of the objects that lapse in and out of existence for whatever reason. You would have to know the reasons behind why all of the above is. You would have to know the origin of everything, and the end. Your information ultimately becomes useless if you found out the end, for it will be too late, or impossible altogether to figure out. The finite universe has an indeterminate end, the infinite universe had no end, and has infinite knowledge; something you will NEVER have. Chaos theory states that anything can happen at any given moment. Would everything cease to be at any given moment? Will time stop? Who knows..?

  • Not possible .

    Imagine a reality in which all physical truths could be revealed and perhaps even stored and cataloged into a database capable of holding such information. This could potentially be considered "knowing everything" because this database would hold all the knowledge of the universe as gathered by our species as a whole. However, evolution of both thought and biology would prevent this database from ever becoming omniscient. For example, if a population of bacteria adapted and became resilient to an anti-bacterial agent, this would be unobserved and unrecorded knowledge in need of discovery. To describe evolution of thought, one might look to how a novelist imagines a new story. This plot may draw from past experience but,in totality, is new. This previously unknown story would then be missing from the potentially omniscient database until it is recorded.
