Would you like it if you finally arrived and all mysteries were solved?

not sure... theres the pleasure of absolute understanding, no more stress about wondering, no questions digging into your mind, never knowing what to do or how to do it. i guess for some people, its the one thing they need.
but for others, they enjoy the questioning, trying to figure it out. but once they know it, once they reach the inevitable, then they no longer have anything to find out. they will know what they were looking for, but maybe it was the search they enjoy more than the actual prize...

If this would be true for everyone, and leaves room for more exploration (like an answer that gives more questions) then I would be pleased as a cheescake :smile:
But if those solved mysteries lead into more ignorant illusions (like 'materialistic view is all that matters, so evading morals more easy'), I will be frightened.

Of course, if all of the mysteries were solved, then we would be all knowing, and if knowlege is power we would be omipotent, which would be very nice indeed.

I would be living a lie then. Wisdom is knowing you don't know everything.

That is silly - you can't even think about beginning to know the ineffable & unknowable!

It's as Bob Marley said, "There is one mystery I just can't express." Yea, & it permeates all!

(maybe)

like Gomp said, were are the ones who create mysteries, so the end to these mysteries is realizing that there weren't any in the first place.

or, i think that's what he meant...
