    Will humans ever really understand why the universe exists?

    Also, there's a limit to self-awareness and higher consciousness. Sorry to reiterate the obvious, but I felt it was relevant. There's a quote: "Our greatest weakness as human beings is not knowing that we don't know". There's no level of self-awareness/higher consciousness that will grant...

    Will humans ever really understand why the universe exists?

    I don't think we'll ever fully understand WHY. It's not possible to find the ultimate answer/truth. For one thing, how would we even know it was the ultimate answer. Human knowledge is both limited and limitless at the same time. We'll only ever know what we know and that IS the limit, but if we...

    Freewill is an Illusion

    Cyfin is right. We have the freewill do to anything, but lack the ability to do so.

    Psssssst hey you yes you click me

    I've never understood the concept of the tree falling over, but nobody being there to hear it so therefore it made no noise. I've always thought that even though nobody heard it fall, it still made a noise. Because it would have make a noise falling over, regardless of whether anybody was there...

    What are the limits of intelligence?

    There is not limit to intelligence, but there is always the barrier of "not knowing what we don't know", but people still discover new things by accidents. So, I'm supposing there is no real limitation to what we can inherit intellectually.

    Does Our Creator Have A Creator Itself?

    I think our supposed "creator" was created by those he supposedly "created", that is, the Almighty is just a Godly figure that man dreamt up to cure his insecurities.

    Are we designed to inquire?

    Obviously, we are designed to inquire, otherwise we'd know everything we want to know already. The question is is... why? =)

    Outer World and Inner World

    I think the way to overcome "inner-world" problems is through your own will power. A lot of people don't have very strong will power, so they find it hard to solve mental/psychological problems that they might have to face, but that's something that they can work on - if they know how.

    What would your question be?

    Why do we ask so many questions? Why can't we just know the answers?

    What are you most afraid of?

    I am most afraid of losing. Actually, no, that's what I HATE most, not what I'm afraid of most. I'll have a think about that one.

    Could this world be a Matrix ?

    You've been watching too many Hollywood Blockbusters. Have you, by any chance, seen I, Robot? Robot's cannot think for themselves, they are programmed to think/act/work the way they do. I imagine robots will advance greatly in the future, but having robot's intelligent enough to think for...

    Could this world be a Matrix ?

    If this dimension were the Matrix, I imagine a Parallel Universe would only be to happy to consider themselves as the Real World. The definition of "Matrix" is a womb of some sort, thus the connection with the pod people being grown in the movie. Considering the fact that our whole universe...

    Dark energy + missing antimatter

    For an easy to understand explaination of anti-matter and how it came to exist, read "Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown :wink: It's a great book. Meanwhile, I found something that might be of interest. The contents of this site is posted below... Particles which are identical to ordinary...
