We are alone.

This is a story of three 'men' (~refer to Zoology), What Why and When!
One day they all sat talking?

Why said, this is not what you think it is!
When asked Why, what is it then?
Why answered, this is what it is! ?
When asked again, so what is what it is then?
What, who had been listened to them, interfering their duologue and said, what is whatever it wants it to be!
When then turned to What and asked him, why are you whatever you want to be?
In addition, When did to, and asked What, what do you think you are?
What looked at them both, and replied, those are both of the same questions...
When, and Why, got thoughtful.
Then When said, why be you, when you are you?
Why said, what you are when you are, being you!
What said, that is the answer to your question...

It then got silent...

Its crazy how being so unspecific produces such a meaningless conversation. If only Why had been a little more specific in his opening statement, and if only When had first asked Why to clarify what was meant by "this" and "it," then perhaps they would have actually communicated something.

But, by applying the principle of charity, one could gather that these fellows are referring to the noumenal world, and that is why they do not get anywhere with their conversation: the "thing" they question is outside of human experience. They should really talk of phenomenal events and try to deduce an emergent pattern in hopes to discover the nature of the noumenal world. They would at least have been able to make more sense of it.

What did why ask when why questioned who did what when, and how did they ask who when what was assuming why knew what it was who is?
