Abstract

What does the veil know but will not tell us directly? This phrasing may sound like an odd personification—the veil is not a person and cannot know anything—but for the moment I would like the question and the figure of speech just to cross your mind, like an epigraph or a haunting melody. Against this background music, we can reexamine how we define knowledge, knowledge by experience or personal acquaintance, knowledge as awareness of facts, knowledge as an understanding of patterns of relations, and realize that the veil insists, knows that there is more to it than we can ever know about it.
