If someone sees the light, they see everything contained within light.
And he knew that everything that exists is one living being, and that light is the messenger of life, because it is alive and contains all information. (— The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book)" by Don Miguel Ruiz, Janet Mills)
Seeing, some say, is believing.
I think that seeing is illuminating not-knowing.
You could say we don’t know who or what we are.
Nescience or ignorance? Or something else?

2399 idiṓtēs (from 2398 /ídios, "own") – properly, of one's own self; used of a person who conspicuously lacks education or status – hence, easily misunderstood as being uninstructed (unrefined, "unlettered in speech"). https://biblehub.com/greek/2399.htm
And then, there’s this:
In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel The Idiot the title refers to the central character Prince Myshkin, a man whose innocence, kindness and humility, combined with his occasional epileptic symptoms, cause many in the corrupt, egoistic culture around him to mistakenly assume that he lacks intelligence. In The Antichrist, Nietzsche applies the word 'idiot' to Jesus in a comparable fashion, almost certainly in an allusion to Dostoevsky's use of the word: "One has to regret that no Dostoevsky lived in the neighbourhood of this most interesting décadent; I mean someone who could feel the thrilling fascination of such a combination of the sublime, the sick and the childish." (Wikipedia)
I once read a description of an idiot as one totally imbued with their surroundings. (It eludes me the source.)
And yet, the phrase “It eludes me the source” is as good a koan to begin this day as any.
And it is “any” we are!
