I know that.....:D

 

In all seriousness....it is better if we don't...as that is the safety net for the universe or multi universes.....No one can touch that....If we knew...someone would come along to destroy it...no doubt.

 

the magic and mystery of quantum mechanics is forever present!

 

and I like that.

Sometimes its best to know when the crap is about to hit the fan so you can duck but, when ducking isn't an option, its best not to see it coming!

We investigate these things because our discoveries might be of some use to us.  I think that is why such things are fascinating.  It is useful to better understand why and how one exists.  This is useful towards everything you do in life as you gauge the significance or lack thereof of your actions.  I assume, though, that everyone ultimately understands, deep down inside, that whatever life and the universe are is an unsolvable cosmic mystery.  If you're looking for an ultimate answer, that's the only one I can think of.  Other than that, I don't think we can take any of the knowledge we gain to heart as being some kind of golden calf to worship and adore.  Knowledge is useful or it isn't, but its being useful doesn't make it an ultimate truth of any sort.

You do realize that the only importance the creation of the universe in terms of being beneficial is to further develop a weapon that won't just destroy a state or a small nation, but an entire country and or world?

Do you think they plan to cook popcorn with such technology?

There is no benefit. You'll die. You'll die knowing or not knowing. Time won't stop. Age won't stop. Either way, you'll die. So, what's the importance?

Like I said before we already know the answers to these questions we've just chosen to forget them. They were with us once upon a time though, when we were at peace and for those of us who continue traditions, we also are at peace with it all. It's the atheists and silence folks that aren't at peace with it that surround their lives with a question that was answered 10,000 years ago in the ages of the pyramids and well before. Those folk were at peace too. Then somewhere along the way, someone decided they didn't relate to any of that, and thus, nothing taught was ever true and we basically fall into a dark age which is now. An age where everything we knew about ourselves is lost within ourselves. We now choose to believe things we don't know exist because someone of importance declared they do exist and that what we thought had existed cannot exist because we can't see and/or prove it. How ironic.

That's a cynical perspective, the truth is we already have way too much technology and can already destroy the entire planet slowly or quickly in any number of different ways. According to some ecologists we're already past the tipping point and require new technology just to deal with the mess we've already made before most of humanity starts to die. Ironically, sometime you have no choice but to have faith. What we need is a new scientific revolution because this one is killing us.

"Destroying the Earth is harder than you may have been led to believe.

You've seen the action movies where the bad guy threatens to destroy the Earth. You've heard people on the news claiming that the next nuclear war or cutting down rainforests or persisting in releasing hideous quantities of pollution into the atmosphere threatens to end the world.

Fools.

The Earth is built to last. It is a 4,550,000,000-year-old, 5,973,600,000,000,000,000,000-tonne ball of iron. It has taken more devastating asteroid hits in its lifetime than you've had hot dinners, and lo, it still orbits merrily. So my first piece of advice to you, dear would-be Earth-destroyer, is: do NOT think this will be easy."

Within twenty years commercial fishing will no longer be possible, within fifty every land animal larger than a dog will be extinct. When Fukushima had a nuclear meltdown they had spent rods stacked right on top of the damned reactor. Just the spent fissionable material all the nuclear reactors have lying around in the open are enough to make the entire planet uninhabitable for millions of years. You don't have to destroy the earth, merely make it worthless for all practical purposes unless you enjoy living underground and eating mushrooms for the rest of your life.

And yet, the earth still remains, revolving around that orbit. ;)

Now listen, I spoke of this "peace". You are not at peace.
