Summary This article shows that if “knowing” is a symmetric relation, then the set of people who know all of the people who know all of the people who know everyone in S coincides with the set of people who know everyone in S. In symbols this becomes K(K(K(S))) = K(S). This fact fits into the broader context of Galois connections between partially ordered sets.
