Clearly we have extended our knowledge beyond the limitation of senses in two ways.
Interpretation of results beyond which are senses are capable of detecting such as in the historical sciences. We have knowledge of long dead living things that cannot be sensed.
We have developed machines that have extended our knowledge far beyond the reach of ordinary senses, such as radio telescopes and electron microscopes.
These two things combined have built our body of knowledge far beyond what it could ever have been possible to contemplate in the last 200 years.

Can anyone explain to me how knowledge is not both limited and also enhanced by the human body/mind? Please,, for the purpose of contrast with our human condition, let me introduce God, unpopular though he be: God definitively is not body/mind therefore is not so limited and enhanced as are we. However God is also all-knowing which means that God has ways of being , besides body and mind, that are not available for humans.
