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?

  • Aug 13 2012: That is the root of curiosity that leads to evolution. Thinking that nobody thought of it , makes you wonder deeper than if you knew the answer came from somebody else. It's like why do dogs chase cars, or why do we hiccup , or agape , or why my hands gets wrinkles in water ...and of course if you stop at why , and don't research ,is bad , but if you find out that nobody answerd and you stop there is even worst.
    What gave colors their names , why is RED so red , and Blue called blue , how cand indigenous people speak languages without the use of words but by just making sounds that are imperceptible tu us, as an evolved community ,etc.
    • Aug 13 2012: Do we all see/experience RED the same?
      • Aug 13 2012: Not exactly the same , but if you ask someone to describe the color red , a great majority will use terms like warmth , love , lava , sun , heat , beauty , passionate , etc . I can't think of someone using cold , or peaceful , or purity , anger , maddnes or evil, although Hell is often been described a ocean of red melted lava.
        • Aug 13 2012: I cant think about using cold either ,but i can easy describe red using anger .
          do i am different or what ?
