The Unknown

As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.

That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don't know

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
