What does it mean to "know" something?

What do traffic lights have to do with varience? They are only one color at a time.

It means that you can't be wrong.

All our brains are fallible all the time. It's how we learn. It's called plasticity. The connections between neurons grow in strength or weaken over time, neurons can reconnect to other neurons, they habituate, become more or less excited over time due to the neurochemicals in our brain. The same applies to all other animals as well.

So what you are saying is that everybody's (including yours and Sye Ten Bruggencate's) 'positions' are absurd all the time and will always be. This is a meaningless statement.

You obtained that knowledge through logic, but logic comes from your brain. Hobo

Not for this particular question. I've added it to the list of questions you won't answer.

Why must there be a supernatural aspect of one-self for knowledge to be possible?

Without an untimite perceiver, reality can't even exist.

Because otherwise we couldn't know anything. We couldn't even know that we couldn't even know. It contradicts itself.
