Primal innocense -Beyond knowing and Not Knowing

We need to know the difference between knowledge and ignorance. One who knows that I know is knowledgeable. One who knows that I dont know is ignorant. Both knowledge and ignorance are coming out of knowing about and not knowing about - both are a form of knowledge. On the other hand Innocence is beyond knowing and not knowing. It is the state of the child. It is the state of enlightened one. Both are blissful. While the child is not aware of the bliss, enlightened one is aware of the bliss. State of innocense is the primal reality. Reality of existence. Beyond knowing and not knowing. Beyond knowledge and ignorance - Eternal bliss.
Story of Socrates
Chaerophen in Greece visited Oracle of Delphi to find out who is the wisest in Athens. Oracle repplied - no doubt - Socrates. People rushed to Socrates to congratulate him. He said "How can it be true ? I dont know anything. Oracle must be wrong !". People rushed back to Oracle and told about words of Socrates. Oracle laughed and said "That is why I told he is the wisest".

He who knows not and doesnot he knows not. He is a fool shun him.
He who knows not but knows he knows not is simple. Teach him.
He who knows but knows not he he knows is asleep. Wake him up.
He who knows but knows that he knows. He is a learned man. Learn from him.
He who has gone beyond knowing and not knowing is enlightened. Respect him.
