Six unanswerable questions
The greatest aim of science is probably our ability to face each answer we receive with new questions.
Although much progress is evidently being made in our world, we still have an infinite number of doubts that we are unable to solve, and some questions we ask ourselves are the same ones a child could ask himself.
After reading “10 Questions Science Can’t Answer Yet; a Guide to The Scientific Wilderness” by Michael Hanlon – which gave us our six themes – we learned to look at reality in a different, purer and deeper way as we once did when we were younger, and used our imagination to play. Our point of view comes from our thoughts, and our thoughts go back to our point of view, every time, after each thing we see, with something more. Or less?
The more we see, the more we realised how imperfect our sight is. It seems to us that, instead of diving into a sea of knowledge, we are merely dipping our toes.
We were introduced to this feeling 25 centuries before Hanlon came along by Socrates: “I know that I know nothing”.
