Wasp up? Ant we all just get along?

This is fascinating, in some sense. In another, I have to wonder about, well, wonder.

If Aristotle is right, all of us human beings naturally desire to know things. But are there any limits to that desire — for instance, do we desire to know everything (as much as possible about as much as possible), or are there some things we’d prefer not to know (TMI syndrome)? And what about our need for knowledge — are there not things we simply don’t need to know? To get totally Nietzschean, isn’t it the case that there are some things about which it is absolutely necessary that we remain ignorant?
