Sentient beings know what can’t be known.

“We living sentient beings, we are not slaves to the data we recieve. The environment floods us with information, our genes give us certain impulses, but we don’t always act on that information, we don’t always obey our inborn needs. We make leaps. We know what can’t be known and then spend our lives seeking to justify that knowledge. I know that what I’m trying to do is possible.” ~Orson Scott Card. Children of the Mind. New York: Tor, 1996.
