It's a "handful" to read, but I liked it. ... And it makes sense.

I stand by Sec. Rumsfeld's statement. As a scientist I was obsessed with all of those categories - known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns. They are critical to truly coming to understand the science behind what we did.

Three laws of robotics 1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

I hated math, except for geometry. I was much more interested in biology as a teenager.

Reports that say there's -- that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things that we know that we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know.

—United States Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld

Some ridicule the statement. As a scientist I totally agree with it. I called unknown unknowns "X Factors". Finding the X factors is key to solving your problems.
