      If knowing everything, like what Nerve was talking about, we'd have to know everything... which would mean experience the world from perspectives such as protons, quarks, the 5000000th bone cell in your body, and it's daily routine of vibrations. There's obviously some restrictions, but that would be an overwhelmingly vast amount of information you'd be bombarded with...

      You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light.

      "There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is there, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened."

      First thing that came to mind was Gorgias's skeptic argument

      Nothing exists;
      If anything did exist, it could never by known;
      If anything could be known, it could never be communicated.

      Essentially, if someone did wake up knowing everything there is to know, they would seem quite alone at first. However, not being able to communicate "knowing" doesn't necessarily mean that others could not know either.

      I'd also find the Fountain of Youth to stay young- and not get all crinkly .

      "Congratulations!

      Finish
      New Save File"

      Now we know what happens to people who "die peacefully in their sleep".

      Admit that, despite my hubris, I still know nothing if axioms still existed.
