We all do but we all don't. We're equal is all I'm trying to say, do you mean that you agree?

I'm sentimental if you know what I mean.
I love the country but I can't stand the scene.

I agree that we're all fundamentally equal, with some superficial differences. I don't agree that anyone has no limit on their mental capacity because no one can comprehend everything.

No, we can't understand everything but we can understand an infinite number of things. And yes, we are all fundamentally equal.

That's very debatable. In fact, it's probably false. We can't understand an infinite number of things.

"Some prisoners spent more than ten years buried in solitary cells the size of coffins, hearing nothing but clanging bars or footsteps in the corridors. They survived because they could talk to each other by tapping on the wall. In that way, they told of dreams, memories, and fallings in and out of love; they discussed, embraced, and fought; they shared beliefs, beauties, doubts, guilts and those questions that have no answers.
When it is genuine, when it is born of the need to speak, no one can stop the human voice. When it is denied a mouth, it speaks with the hands, the eyes, the pores, or anything at all because every single one of us has something to say to the others, something that deserves to be celebrated or forgiven by others."-Eduardo Galeano

It's also the case that some people moist definitely do have limited mental capacity, relative to what might be expected. That's what IQ is a measure of.

History is the lies of the victors coupled with the delusions of the defeated. It is an imagined certainty created at the point where the imperfection of memory meets the inadequacy of documentation.

But there are reasons for people's inabilities, that can be addressed but just aren't by current technology.
