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 20 2012: I completely agree with both queenie and Frans. Arguing with others is not a constructive way to further one's personal life and the global evolution. Self-acceptance and happiness seem to have a correlation with this. Which raises another question, if someone is not pleased with them-self, why do they lash out that anger on others?
      • Jul 21 2012: In defence of arguing it is vital evolutionary tool for self defence. Because even the mundane act of washing the dishes although seen by oneself as a harmless/possitive/neccessary action in your life can be seen in negative light. You may feel that it is important to maintain your standard of living and it is your freedom and liberty to do so.

        The flip side to this is that by using water on mere dishes is a waste and its consumption is driving up demand, therefore prices. This can be annoying for some but in a life of poverty having your water cut off can be life changing or ending.

        I know this is extreme but you must have a means of defence especially when others don't even know or agree that they are doing wrong. And things like this can lead to wars. Believe it or not there is a purpose for negativity in life, whether I or anybody else likes it or not.

        I'm not saying that we should stop trying to eradicate negativity, just understand it. The end fight that we play against negativity or eachother is essentially evolution, which is forever changing and blessedly unbeatable.

        P.S i still wash my dishes
