    I don't know. I don't think I'd be any different personally if it happened in my lifetime because 99.9999% of it will probably be trivia that I can't even put into practice.

    Maybe my water would be synthesized directly out of my faucet and I get my steamed rice out of a replicator but I don't think much would be different as far as my philosophy goes. I probably wouldn't even realize that 'everything' had been figured out until someone told me.

    Then again I'm not really a discovery person when it comes to knowledge - it's just a tool to me. I'd probably be relieved when the process is out of the way for good and I can just go on with experiencing stuff without having to poke at it with my intellectual yardstick stick of scientific measury.

    Hopefully flowers will still be pretty and trees will still grow and I will still be a blanket hermit crab in the morning until I get my coffee.

    We discovered our limitations

    After a mere 400 years after the Enlightenment, we have discovered our limitations.

    We have discovered our religions don't reflect the empirical world, just as mbti and astology don't reflect the empirical world.

    We have discovered we are limited by our perceptions. In particular we are unable to imagine the very large in Relativity; and we are unable to imagine the very small in Quantum Mechanics.

    And just as water is invisible to fish, we have discovered our environment is invisible to us.

    We have also discovered that the content of our environment is the previous environment. So for instance, print is the content of our electronic environment.

    We have discovered our personalities and our societies are limited by our child rearing.

    And we don't even know what 95% of the universe is made of.
