There was a person

 who didn’t want to know anything. This was because by knowing nothing, he had no accountability for anything whatsoever.

  So he chose to ignore everything and know nothing, and was, therefore, never to blame for anything. If confronted, he would simply say “I do not know,” and would always be pardoned.

  One day however, somebody told him something, and, as much as he tried to avoid knowing about it, he could not neglect the fact that he had now obtained some knowledge.

  The man was so troubled by what it was he now knew, that he wanted to forget all about it. But to do this he had to know something else - how to forget. This problem brought a complexion to an even more complex conundrum and dilemma of contemplation to the inevitable point of forgetting. As he now knew how to forget, he forgot that he didn’t want to know anything, which was just when he realised that he

knew it all.
