The secret of the adult world is that nobody 'knows' anything. We've always valued knowledge as the key that opens the door to prediction and forecast. This, in turn, affords us the advantage of anticipating and adjusting to changes before they happen. The more experience and knowledge we accumulate, the better our ability to 'know' what's going to happen in the future.
We all think that the best investors 'know' the stock market; the best venture capitalists 'know' innovation; the best movie producers know blockbusters; the best scouts 'know' how to find raw talent...
Yet, for the most part, these people rely more on luck than experience or wisdom.
Think about everything that goes into the way things happen: possible outcomes multiply as they get more complex, leading to millions of potential results.
Tomorrow is only a few hours away, and we still have time to 'know' a bit about a few things -- things that younger generations would like to know about. This is a more realistic view of the state of knowledge in the adult world.
But don't tell the kids.

"If you knew nothing else, and you had two identical ideas, one proposed by a very young person, one proposed by a middle-aged person, and that's the only thing you have to go on, you would be better off --- if you wanted to predict success --- betting on a middle-aged person."
