What is the 1 Question you'd ask or Idea you'd share with the TED Team ?

Imagine you have complete access to some of the best speakers in the world, TED Fellows, the TED Team and a bunch of the most talented TEDx organizers on the planet. Now imagine all of this happening in Doha, Qatar on 16th April, 2012.

I'm fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the TEDxSummit in Doha and now I ask you to share with me a question or an idea which needs to be heard.

I'll try my very best to ask/share it with them :)

    Apr 3 2012: As humans we are aware we will die one day. All religious/ spiritual text indicate the founders of all religion did manage to crack the code of life and death. Today in 2012, why do we:
    1. As humans not pay any attention to the purpose of life, continue to be driven by greed anger &foolishness ? Do we really we believe that we are so stupid?
    2. What is the fundamental purpose of religion/spirituality/atheism? would be incorrect to say that the fundamental purpose of existence of animate or inanimate life or belief or religion is, more human joy than happiness [considering joy to be more sustainable as it creates beauty, and greater good as well vis-a-vi happiness which can[and is] still be transient?
    3. If, our focus is supreme human joy,which can also be termed as maximizing human potential & human security, how do get leaders political and religious to look ahead and create a new future, focusing efforts on finding similarities, rather than getting involved with discussing the differences..... http://enterprise185.biz/wordpress/ .
