I have my reasons that Socrates once tried to understand how Docker works, because I have exactly the same feelings.

    And I thought he said "The only thing I know, is that I don't know", but what do I know

    Just to set the record straight. Some such claim is often attributed to Socrates on the basis of his remarks in Plato’s Apology (21a-e), but the claim that he actually makes is much less paradoxical. Socrates reports that his friend Chaerephon went to the oracle at Delphi to ask if any person was wiser than Socrates. The oracle apparently answered, no. After having cross-examined lots of people who had a reputation for wisdom and having discovered as a result that their reputation was undeserved, Socrates drew the following conclusion about the significance of the oracle’s answer: “I am wiser than this man; it is likely that neither of us knows anything worthwhile, but he thinks he knows something when he does not, whereas when I do not know, neither do I think I know; so I am likely to be wiser than he to this small extent, that I do not think I know when I do not know” (Ap. 21d-e).

    Ok students, let me explain... From the quote..

    The fact that he "knows" that he "knows nothing" means that he KNOWS something because he knows that he knows nothing. Get it? 😁
