But what's missing is the 'why' bit. And whether you like it or not, it's the 'why' bit that is the fundamental part of human nature that drives us to discover more and more about the universe.
hi pip1974, welcome to PF

Perhaps it is just the fact that I have young kids, but IMO "why" is generally not that important a question. any answer to a why question can be, and often is, simply followed by another why question. It is a game that any four-year old can play expertly. also, in my experience, generally a why question is asking for a bedtime story rather than a scientific experiment.
