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?

Harry's book however, traces all the factors and considers everything from Freudian and Jungian thought to existentialism to altered states - it is a dense but safisfying read.
