Ok, I know what you mean.. and maybe I am just taking you too literally. But, I have the opposite view. lol.
Ya can't know something if you don't ponder and think about what is currently unknown. Some things may end up still being "unknown" to us even after all of the thinking/pondering/meditating/tearing apart and putting back together, etc., but how ya ever going to find that out unless you think and ponder and try to seek it out and meditate etc. in the first place?
edit: I meant to add about the "not gonna help in the here and now", for me, some things being shifted to the "know" status from the "not knowing and will probably never know" status... certain things have made a huge difference to me, personally in my life that affected my outlook, peace in my heart and my actions for the better.
Sometimes you can be suprised at just how strongly you think something is in the "uknown and just can't be known" that can be slowly transitioned further into the "known" status. A lot further.
Now with all this "known" and "unknown" stuff, I am absolutely taking into account that pehaps everything we think is wrong, and that this earth is maybe, in reality, some sort of science experiment that some alien kid forgot about in the back of his closet and we're totally mutating and getting all out of control. LOL!
Hope that made sense.
