Who Can Answer Correctly?
    #3499196 - 12/14/04 08:21 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Really there is no true right answer to this, just interested in the kind of answer I'll get. Quite a philosophical question if I do say so myself. And here it comes.....

"Why?"

Why leads only to more questions and more confusion.

Ask how, not why.

Why not?


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Oh no... there is plenty of need to question it.

Keep asking that question... never stop... that is the answer.

And the question was correctly answered by...


Trendal!

Again, there is no real right or wrong answer to that, although it happened to be the 100% answer to my school's philosophy exam essay question :laugh:

Well, there are a wide variety of factors. Too numberous to mention. But it's complicated.

That's why.

Because that question is the only one that will teach you what matters to you.

Quote:

Because there is no objective (counter-)argument to that question.

why = what is the reason?

if so

everything is its own reason. everything 'just is'

the question of why is really just about "how do I relate to this" and the answer to that is entirely up to you. which means that why is up to you.

you choose your own why.
