" I feel both terror and shame to know that from my brief curiosity has brought upon abhorrent actions of my very own daughter. I watch it in her eyes as she collects the insects for her displays. Dropping the cotton ball doused in alcohol, enclosed into a glass jar. Eyes wide and curiosity piqued as the tiny insect squirms for air and rolls onto its back. The husk continues to twitch even though the life is no longer present. In every action of hers, though subtle, I feel something dark and foreboding.

Young Adelein asks far too many questions for girl her age, with often deranged underlying meanings.
I should have never taken responsibility of that book, but I too felt the temptation of its secrets. It has never been showed to her, but I grow well aware that she knows of it. If I was not prohibited to do so I would strike her repeatedly until her common sense was restored.
Instead my anger has marked the servant girl, so perhaps she sees the consequences of her actions upon the frail bruised skin of what I assume to be her only friend. Perhaps then will I have my daughter back.
I wanted a simple unblemished child who asked for dolls and sweets. I did not ask for this monster.
I only wait for the day that one of us will simply know too much... "

Intuitively she knows and but only asks what her mind can fathom. Disconnection from humanity comes from her purpose at birth, where the one before her failed- she will understand. Ultimately, from the lord of knowledge, she asks nothing, wants nothing for herself. Only to act as a tool, and feel satisfaction for seeing what others can not.

Out of all Daedra, he is the most dangerous. Not because of his power, no his danger is far worse but more rewarding. He danger is his willingness to want and offer a little, but make you want a lot. His books are a curse as they are also a blessing. Praise the Daedra of what is, what will be, what was, and what isn't. For true knowledge has no bounds.

Knowledge cast aside out of fear, is casting aside the truth of mortal's own existence. Sometimes its easy to see why he is The Gardener of Man.

Hermaeus Mora gives all knowledge freely, but always disregarding that its indecipherable to most mortals. The secret of brewing a perfect cup of tea can be interpreted with nearly infinite possibilities.
If one was able to interpret this knowledge, another variable appears, altering the answer as it is solved.

Only a being that exists in the past, present, and future can master this ability.

.... excellent answer, but he only has access to knowledge that has ultimately been collected from sentient beings, so one can still hypothetically obtain unsurpassed mastery in the constantly progressing present through constant dauntless study no? if you cant have the infinite perfection of tea, one can still settle for a freaking amazing super awesome skills at tea right now. 

Priorities!

 Technically yes, but that is unknown and not yet able to be measured. What you described is the very allure of the Sphere of Fate. The suspicion, that there is always more- because there always will be...endlessly.

Anyways, I asked Adel and she said she makes her own tea because she doesn't trust any steward to make it for her. Its quite fantastic, but I question the ingredients :x.

I think, the only solution to this philosophical conundrum is to make more tea.
