Interesting use of the word "trustee"--and tracing back to Kant, nonetheless!  What would it mean to be a trustee of knowledge?  Would it be anything similar to a Bankruptcy Court trustee?  A conservator you appoint when your aunt develops Alzheimers and can no longer manager her finances?  On this forum, are we trustees of knowledge/science?  And then there's the regression to "trust"--trust as treasure, but also trust as blind confidence, as that ultimate atom, faith.
