    Yes, but even with that there is finding it and then understanding it. There are loads of things that we think we have a grasp on that really are unknown entirely or nearly so.

    What are the smallest unit of things, what actually is matter at the core level? We do not have perfect grasps on even things that are understood.

Right again. For example, we know what light is, but nobody understands why it behaves the way it does.

    I am not saying it will never be known or anything. Or that nothing can be done because we do not have this information. It just seems that there might be limitations that may or may not be overcome.

I'm more optimistic. I could cite people - scientists - saying exactly the same thing going right back to and including Newton.

The cutting edge boundaries of science today, the unknowns, are the commonplace of tomorrow.


      We'll get there.

    Maybe, with some issues I think humanity will. With others it is harder to say. Because of the level and because humanity will likely not be around forever.

    I mean some of the issues are pretty massive. I recall hearing the amount of work it took to sense a gravity wave. Impressive, but it is hard to figure out that sort of stuff, not impossible but just very hard and you need to be lucky.

    Just merging general relativity with quantum mechanics would be one of the biggest accomplishments ever.

Indeed. But we have our best people working on it!

Far more than just the discovery of the Higgs has come out of the LHC. It may take decades to fully understand all the information they've gathered AND they're planning a new, more powerful collider which will unlock even more.

We don't know where the breakthrough will come. It may be through one of the colliders, it may be through observations made on extremely distant objects, it may be through mathematics, or some combination of any of a dozen scientific disciplines.

But I remain confident it will come.
