A sense of humor will benefit you greatly.
The literary formality: 'irony'

Brainlike computers, learning from their own mistakes:

The new computing approach, already in use by some large technology companies, is based on the biological nervous system, specifically on how neurons react to stimuli and connect with other neurons to interpret information. It allows computers to absorb new information while carrying out a task, and adjust what they do based on the changing signals.

The original question referred to 'physics', but that is an artificial distinction about fields of understanding. The 'field' of physics has fuzzy edges, and, to understand emotions, for example, the fuzzy edges of physics need to mingle with the fuzzy edges of life sciences and psychology. This is not a strange idea to geographers who regularly have to harness multiple fields of knowledge (I mean understanding) in order to make advances into new areas.

List of unsolved problems in physics

With more knowledge, this list is not getting shorter, it is getting longer as more and more questions are coming up.

We don't understand the Pauli Exclusion Principle at all.

We do not understand metals from first principle. The simple nearly free electron approach works ok, but refinements on it fail. We are unable to calculate band gaps from first principle.

_Apparent_ contradictions?
Are you stating that the problem is merely a paradox?
