Strange questions that humans have not yet found an answer for!

We all have a unique course of action through out our day. Many of the conversation along with our friends or some that we hear from others talking at times surprise us and gets our brain thinking, but only to later ignore saying this might be beyond human reach. Have you come across any such question through your brain or from others which you think humans have not yet explored or researched or any unanswerable question?

    Jul 17 2012: i love your question and the connection you have made to the idea of "collective intelligence".

    I don't at the moment have an offering to make of my own experience with such questions but what you are pointing to is very important. Sometimes asking the right question, which always means with an openness that doesn't include some notion of he answer, opens the door to new discoveries and often to personal elevation/progress.

    What about you? Do you have an example you can share with us?

      Thanks for the reply,

      I am happy to know that i got your brain excited with new thoughts.

      Here are few things that i find is strange and un-explored.

      1. Communicating with an alien.
      2. Will Moore's law hold good after a decade, or is such a law even necessary after such a long journey?
      3. Will humans ever understand that fighting does not lead to anywhere?

      4. Instead of war, If we become friends wont it be of more benefit for either party.

      5. Which is important being richest or being happiest

      Will keep more coming on this.

      All The Best.

        Jul 20 2012: Those are fundamental and challenging questions. I think that everyone on this planet might have contemplated question 3 at some point in their life.

        Why can't we stop fighting and just get along with each other We are both similar and different at the same time. We are all humans and share this planet, why can't we learn to accept other people's differences and become good neighbors and friends? Fighting is unnecessary and an act of violence that doesn't result in anything positive.
