    I would not want to be all knowing for one reason: I would not want to invade the privacy of people. There are just some things that should remain secret.

    God Willing, i won't. Because:

    1. It's not my right. Only The Almighty, Greatest Being deserve the right to be All-Knowing.

    2. In some cases, ignorance is bliss. Some truths are better left buried, I have learned this lesson the hard way

    3. Most information is useless, I'd only like knowledge that can benefit me, is useful, relevant to me than allow myself to get bogged down by useless jargon of information little-to-no use to me. Information overload should be avoided for the sake of efficiency

    Sure.
    That's pretty much the goal of my tradition.

    There being truth I would love to know all about it. Beyond that and getting into particular situations, I would rather not know how all events unfold.

    The power of now, and the power of experience teaching lessons is really all there is. The future always depends on these two things.

    I know all things. There is no mystery in life for me, and I am none the worse for it. :)

    Knowledge is power, and with infinite knowledge comes infinite responsibility.

    I don't think that's a burden I'm capable of bearing. Of course, I don't know if it is or not. I'd have to be omniscient to know if being omniscient is a good idea. Knowing everything might reveal ways I could bear that responsibility adequately, but my point is that I'm not sure if those ways even exist for me to know.

    No, because then I'd truly know how idiotic people are instead of just feeling that is the case. It's pretty depressing if you think about it, lol.

    Yes, of course I would like to be all knowing. I tried being "little knowing", studying so many years. Would be the best gift ever.

    That won't be a problem. Because when you are all knowing, you know how to de-create your ego-created problem
