What if "the truth" about any concept (consciousness, reality, religion,physics, etc.), turns out to be a complex idea such that our brains can't simply process it in a single lifespan.
For example, a large complicated operation can take years for a small processor to compute. Perhaps so much time that its components (metal parts, plastic enclosures, etc.) break down before the computation is done.
Human knowledge is increasing and every day new things are discovered. Kids are learning concepts earlier in school: What Newton once discovered in his adulthood is now taught in secondary school.
There could be a time in the future when what's now cutting edge technology is going to be taught in basic school (like quantum theory).
But what if this isn't possible and we simply can't learn that quickly to be at the very edge of current knowledge and understanding in a given field.
Given that someday we might reach this limit where one has to dedicate his/her entire life to a given field just to keep up with current knowledge, making it impossible for new discoveries to be made.
Are there any references where I can find more on the topic: limits of knowledge?
