Sometimes I get confused about the usage of "just" and the meaning of that word. For example, in this phrase:

There's never a point where you just gonna know everything.

What's the meaning of "just" in this context?

    Similar to plainly or absolutely here. Jul 4 '21 at 23:04
  • @Yosef I disagree. In this context, it means "simply". Can you give me example sentences where "just" can mean "plainly" or "absolutely"? I can't think of any

In this case, just means:

(OLD) 2: simply

"There's never going to be a point where you are simply going to know everything."

This is stating knowledge is a much more complex matter, where you gain knowledge bit by bit, rather than all at once.
