The Sum of All Human Knowledge

One small section of my humble little library collection.
Have you ever wondered how many volumes of books it would take to sum up the entire wealth of human knowledge?

Let's put this another way; if everything on Google was printed, how many pages would be required? Would the world's largest libraries be large enough to contain the vast sum of all human knowledge?

I used to think of such a concept as being totally immeasurable, kind of like counting the sand on the seashore, but I was wrong. (I know, I know, it's not like me to be wrong -LOL).

Apparently the total sum of all human knowledge can neatly fit into two simple textbooks. It's true; if I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it either. Take a look for yourself. Does this not say "The Sum of All Human Knowledge?" LOL.

Well there you have it! So forget all those bookshelves full of expensive books. Apparently all we really need in order to know it all is this simple two-volume set. Happy reading.
