That our boundless ignorance explains why we feel so confident of success in bounded knowledge?” This shows the point that is made through the article that humans cannot achieve a situation where we will know all.  “The creative mind fashions the world in which we live” for humans to learn especially in science they need to create an experiment and perform it.
