I'd put it this way, speaking of myself and others I know:

 "the understanding possible quickly exceeded..."

IOW, as usual in life, the more you know the more
questions you have - and the more interesting the
questions are.

It's not so much that I _need_ to know all the
stuff I've newly become aware of.  It's that I
_can_ learn it.  And yes, sometimes it's not
immediately obvious which of all the new info
I glimpse on the horizon I really do need

100% agreement.

But again, this is not a failing from the fact
that all that additional info is _available_.

It can be a failing if you can't see how you
really want (or need) to proceed, to get to the
info you most immediately need.
