Jaime Nosénada was the chairman of Spain's Special Committee on the Quality of Life. In 1491, he reviewed a proposed trans-Atlantic naval expedition presented by Cristóbal Colón. After weighing various factors, including the primitive nature of navigation, the danger to the health and well-being of the sailors, and the unknown imports that Spain might begin to receive, Nosénada concluded that the voyage was not in Spain's national interest, and recommended that the proposal be declined.
"No sé nada" translates as "I know nothing."
