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: 5. Isn’t the point of long-life span that there’s so much to do and discover in this world? I understand being “sports” with religious and cultures driven by number worship (3 years, 7 years,27, 33,40, 333, 666, 999, etc), but delaying stuff that needs to be dealt with at proper life course, IMO, only delays movement, action and solutions. There’s a quote in my environment that speaks a lot about a similar concept: “knowledge at the speed of people”. I’d dare to derivate it into “progress at the speed of people”.
    6. Why aren’t social systems delivering life sustainability yet: i.e. housing, access to health (dental included for poor), education, a chance for employment, etc. Just because the superior classes (i.e. those with access to internet, who get to ponder the lack of meaning of stuff – just because the “spoiled brats” of society go through the pointlessness phase, the impacts of suffering and loss of that can be limited). Why aren’t governments getting past the historical money reserves like (forest, or ocean, or air/space), and just make current day rules? From what I experienced, it seems a society focused more on creating poverty, death and fallen ones than a society geared on solving these issues. “poverty”, “homelessness” and “sickness” should not be “industries –creating-clients”.
