This question has already been asked somewhat, "Word for someone who wants to know everything about everything" The best definition given was pantomath, the problem with pantomath is that it means someone who knows all (along with wants to know all), while I'm looking for a word that describes someone who wants to know all or wants to become omniscient, a pantomath, etc.

John is a(n) (insert word) he's always telling me he wants to learn everything he can.

    You really want a single word? The answer to the linked question insatiably curious sounds perfect otherwise.

    We would prefer that you quote a definition from a recognized dictionary (and also link to that definition), rather than just linking to a site that quotes from a dictionary.

John is insatiable. He's always telling me he wants to learn everything he can.

Impossible to satiate or satisfy: an insatiable appetite; an insatiable hunger for knowledge.
