Is this the right direction?

Supposing you come to know everything there is to know about life; you understand the purpose of your existence, the conditions under which your surroundings have been brought about; you understand the theories of knowledge that have confounded philosophers for centuries as well as the mysteries of science that no human mind has now the capacity to explore; you understand every fibre of your being and understand even what ‘truth’ and ‘doubt’ really means, insofar that you are not constantly warped into a maze of compulsive intellection. Supposing you come to know all this, the great truth which has eluded humanity for so long, what happens then? There will be nothing left to seek. Everything becomes meaningless, and still you cannot cease to exist.
