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 28 2012: 3. Einstein is advertised as a genius figure from the beginning of the 20th century. Yet today I expect most average people to be capable of thinking beyond Einstein’s spectrum. Some might not grasp the mathematics dialect, yet… the ability to process information and extrapolate to community, society and perhaps world –wide systems…that ability. (disclaimer: Einstein lived in a time when idiot was considered a mental illness, I have not tracked down when that was taken out of DSM, and when “idiot savant” became a cool thing. “consumption”, “idiot”, “homosexual” are some examples of conditions stigmatized by psychiatry that were later reversed). Taking that thought forward, wouldn’t that apply for access to education, housing and travel? Wouldn’t it be expected of our present day social systems to allow most average people to learn more, and travel and know the world more than a few leaders from the 1500&1600, the exploration ages? Why is that so limited?
    4. Why aren’t the leadership planning sessions publicly announced? Even with a few months delay or one year delay, it would still help people align, input and feel they participate in the world “journey” rather than feeling a non-recyclable reject with viewing and/or chatting priviledges.
