Existence & humility

I will begin by stating that existence is contextual. Let’s get an example. If I say that a satellite exists but a caveman doesn’t know about it, then does the satelite still exist? This is similar to say, if a tree is falling in the forest and no one talks about it, does it still happen? The answer, of course, depends on who sees it. In this way, it can apprehended that when I say something doesn’t exist, it is better to be said with a firm confidence. Something might exist, but I just don’t know it yet. I am not aware of its existence, so I don’t know. Therefore in this case, existence precedes knowledge. Well, it could also be said in another direction: knowledge precedes existence. This is the case for inventions. A person has a knowledge of something, hence it gives an idea that something could be made into existence.
