The world will be filled... Will we know everything?

At the end of Rambam he quotes that [in the Geula] the world will be filled with knowledge of Hashem.

So I was wondering (klotz kasha). Does that mean that we will know everything (since everything comes from Hashem)?

He talks about knowing hidden things. But will we know everything?

I realized that the answer is written right there: kifi koach haodom, (we will learn about Hashem) as much as a person is able to.

Both yes and no.

In Likutei Sichos (don't recall where exactly) the Rebbe explains the Rambam's loshonos there:

Quote:
The Jews will therefore be great sages and know the hidden matters, and will attain an understanding of their Creator to the extent of mortal potential.
"know the hidden matters" refers to knowledge of the entire Creation, and every Jew will have complete knowledge--"we will know everything". Because the Creation is a limited thing, it is possible to "know everything". This also means that in this regard all Jews will be on the same level.

"an understanding of their Creator to the extent of mortal potential" refers to hasagas haBorei (understanding the Eybershter) and since Hashem is unlimited, there is no limit to this understading, no way to "know everything", and thus it is according to the potential of each individual. This also allows for different levels among Jews.

We think we know more than we do and it is rare that we admit we don't know much of anything.

Thank you for your post.
I think I found the inyan in LS vol. 26 page 120.

During my search, it was very nice to glance through a number of siyumim on the Rambam, and to see again how beautifully the Rebbe explains things.
