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: 7. Wars, murders, injustice, and on the good side, exploration, a lot of things happened and were justified in the past by the experience of “visions”, or “flashes”, things that used to be considered of the divine, and accessed by a privileged few country rulers, in the past. Or access to knowledge that enables perspective and plan-making. Media synchronization and modern day experiences provide a different way of experiencing such, to the point of banality. How does that play in the decision-making process? Is there any other justification for bad stuff people, systems and society does, besides “just because I can twist logic around and get away with it”? Please be very careful with the “passive-aggressive for defence” excuse.
    8. If it is a dark-age society underneath the modern-days pretense, and thinking, knowledge, expressing opinions, asking questions, thinking in perspective, at a systemic level of society, and other stuff are privileges of those with a superior society status, looks, acknowledgment and wealth, how do I know that besides assumptions from bad treatment of those around me? If there’s such thing as modern-days slavery, or living-deads, or people-to-be-owned and abused with no human rights, or whatever, why isn’t it a social class that I can get stamped on my skin, my id, my whatever, so I would know it, and not just assume it. If it is just an assumption, how can one get out of these thoughts to more humane ones?
