Nikola Tesla concluded in his theory of teleautomatics that our minds are based on a system of cause and effect sequences. How do we know that these cause and effect sequences do or do not give rise to our sense of inquiry? Why do we wonder? Why is it important to ask what the simplest manifold is? Some of the questions asked in science or mathematics seem to have no relavance in everyday life, I have to admit. That is not to say I abhor such persuits, I am merely wondering why we should be curious.
