I don't know, Grant. It makes perfect sense to me. It is not
unknown to know such things, whether they are known knowns,
unknown knowns, or known unknowns, you know. What is not a known
known, however, is how to transform an unknown known into a
known unknown, and vice versa. We don't even know if we don't
know how to do this.

Hope this clears things up.
