    This reminds me of the scientific and pseudo-scientific community's various claims that the boundary of human knowledge is like that on an expanding circle; whereas if one must use geometric analogies, such "boundary" may be more akin to that of a fractal, as some "knowledge" can be lost/occluded, even as some knowledge is preserved/gained.

      And treating all knowledge as if it is or can be held collectively (an orgy of knowledge!) is the central fallacy of socialism to which Gossen, v. Mises, Weber, Brutzkus, v. Hayek, &alii objected.
