    Those questions are anything but easy. What makes you think physicists or philosophers or anyone have access to some fundamental truths?

    Sorry, this doesn't meet criteria for posting in philosophy. Moving to GD.

    Well I guess you went with the logical route.

    Sorry. I thought it would be fun. If these are not philosophy questions then I have no idea what philosophy is.

    Logic as opposed to nonsense? Nonsense is even easier.

    Who are you? I am the virtual partner of a real human being.
    What are you? I am a PF member.
    When are you? Too often.
    Where are you? Mostly hanging in the physics sections and GD.

    Why are you? Science does not answer "why". I already read your next "why" if I dared attempting at an answer.

    How these two differ:
    I understand that "Who" refers to living while "What" refers to non living in this context. But, You cannot be multiple entities simultaneously.

    "Who" wants to know.

    What are you?
    I hear the sound of one hand clapping.

    Not very often.

    Where are you?
    Voyaging on a life raft through my psyche.

    There's no alternative.

    I hear a mouse spinning.

    There are few short answers here. With no disrespect implied, you're asking a bunch of analytical thinkers to answer what looks like an USWeekly quiz. Philosophy has a fine line between relavant questions and redundant questions. The length of that line is however debatable (ba-da-dut-dum!)
    One "short" answer for 1-4: I am either who, what, when or where; I say, anyone but I says, the ultimate truth says, or some combination therin. As for 5 and 6, you'll have to ask the ultimate truth.
    Good luck with that.:cool:

    What are you? The life of brain.
    When are you? In the past, for some time now.
    Where are you? At home, only in the literal sense.
    How are you? As incomplete as the question. Thanks for asking. How are you?
