Unconscious Unknowns (with Donald Rumsfeld clip)

The Johari Window (named after Jo and Hari) was a "window" divided into four "panes of glass" that represented four basic levels of Consciousness. Two "panes" were things only you know and the other two were things only others know. There are Known Knowns; things we know that we know, and the Unknowns: Things we know that we do not know and things we do not know that we do not know.

I have a video clip here from YouTube somewhere of Donald Rumsfeld's Press Conference during the George W. Bush Administration that absolutely bewildered the press corps trying to use this explanation in a cryptic response to what was going on with the Iraq connection to 09/11/2001 events.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: "The World is his, who can see through its pretension...see it to be a Lie, and you have already dealt it its mortal blow."
