So much of our universe is unknown … 96% in fact. Scientists don’t really know how gravity works – or why and how so many other things in our world actually occur.
People get really cross about things they can’t possibly ever know or prove, like the beginning of the universe, or proving God exists, but they let other things that are really important, such as getting on with their family, pass them by.
Best known for his work on comedy television programmes Not the Nine O’Clock News, Spitting Image, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Blackadder and QI, British comic genius, producer and writer, John Lloyd, turns his curiosity to knowledge itself: “Ignorance drives science…any fool can find answers. People who ask new questions are the geniuses. Ignorance is at the heart of any kind of discovery.”
After 40 years of being in comedy, John Lloyd still has no idea what actually makes something funny! But he does know that wisdom is a question of working out which are the important things in life.
