It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.

(William G. McAdoo, a former US Presidential election nominee)

you have become the path itself”

Progress can be spoken of in things to be obtained afresh. Whereas here it is removal of ignorance, and not acquisition of knowledge.
If it is acquisition of knowledge, it only results in learned ignorance. Once the ignorance is removed, progress can be expected of in the
quest of knowledge.
