Unanswered Everything

Noted here, at this blog, are all the quirks of nature and reality that go unanswered; that is, they remain unexplained.

Who really produced the Shakespeare oeuvre?


Is there a God?

What is consciousness?

Was there a Big Bang?


What are UFOs?

What is Dark Matter? Dark Energy?

What happened to Amelia Earhart?


Why did Neanderthal “man” disappear?

What is death?


Is quantum reality the real reality?

Does pi have an end?


What is the purpose of life?

And so on…

Do we have a point? Not necessarily.

Life doesn’t seem to have a point, so why should we?

To pursue the questions above is an idle pursuit of course. Socrates suggested that such pursuits are the philosophical point of human existence. But is that so?


As we go forward, we’ll be more nihilistic probably, just a bit short of Schopenhauer’s wonderfully depressive outlook, but with an epicurean stance somewhat.

And that’s all we have, right? That is if Sartre and the existentialists are correct…..
