Zebriski point

The point of this whole zebra exercise is, I think, to see what the meaning of the word "know" is. In the original posting, rezoner suggested there is a cultural difference between what we can call Eastern and Western approaches. In the comments, I saw more versions. Because I have not studied philosophy for a long time (and before learning anything new here I would have first to forget what I was treated to back when), and because I felt like it, I, together with other, perhaps more enlightened but not less playful, LJ friends engaged in a reductio ad absurdum testing of possible borders of the meaning of "know".

And you know what?
