There are two types of unknowns: the yet-to-happen (or future) and the intellectually-challenging (the Unknown).
As for the former, Hume (1711-76) and others have shown that it is indeed impossible to fully know the future, that the best we can do is make guesses and assumptions based on previous experience.
As for the latter, there is a process which allows the Unknown to become familiar and wholly known.
First, learn to sit in complete silence and become unaware of either your own body or immediate surroundings.
Secondly, at the end of each day consider your own actions and thoughts and decide whether or not they were selfishly motivated; if they were, change them next time round.
And that, my friend, is virtually the entire process from which everything else will flow.
