He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

in the Introduction of the "Atthasåliní" (The Expositor,) it is said that the Buddha, during the fourth week after his

enlightenment, sat in the "Jewel House", (near the bodhi tree)

... "And while he contemplated the contents of the "Dhammasangani",

his body did not emit rays; and similarly with the contemplation of the

next five books. But when, coming to the "Great Book", he began to

contemplate the twenty-four universal causal relations of condition, of

presentation, and so on, his omniscience certainly found its opportunity

therein. For as the great fish Timirati-piògala finds room only in the

great ocean eighty-four thousand yojanas in depth, so his omniscience

truly finds room only in the Great Book. Rays of six colours- indigo,

golden, red, white, tawny, and dazzling- issued from the Teacher’s

body, as he was contemplating the subtle and abstruse Dhamma by his

omniscience which had found such opportunity...."
