Confusing questions that make no sense with answers


1. Where is everybody?

This confusing question might come across as a simple existential question.

In 1950, at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, four scientists – Emil Konopinski, Edward Teller, Hebert York, and Enrico Fermi were indulged in a casual conversation about flying saucers during lunch.

What began as a superficial conversation about a flying saucer cartoon quickly turned into a discussion about the possibility of sophisticated societies populating the universe.

During the discussion, Enrico Fermi came out with this casual remark.
“Where is everybody?”

The root of the question, according to the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence is that “Fermi realized that any civilization with a modest amount of rocket technology could rapidly colonize the entire galaxy.”

According to scientific logic, the universe should be teaming with extraterrestrial lives and colonies.

Whatever you see in The Guardians of the Galaxy or The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy should have been the reality.

Yet, all we see within the observable universe is this magnificent emptiness.

Sure, there might be bacterial lives floating in the oceans of a distant planet,


Where are all the civilizations?

Where are all the sentient beings?

Are we truly alone in this universe?

This remark left scientists around the world scratching their heads, even to this date.

2. Why do you want to live, if it is going to be over, eventually?

This is such a philosophical question that actually does make sense if we go deep into and understand the roots of its meaning.

But the irony in this tricky question is that it actually proposes us, to die by revealing the utmost truth of life.

As far as my realization, the only objective truth of life is death. Everything else is subjective and biased.

After analyzing this confusing question, if you really wonder is it really worth living, when eventually if it is going to be over?

That sort of thought emerges only when you deal with the extremely painful moments of your life or utterly bored with your existence.

By any means, if those thoughts come to your mind, just take a long pause, reflect on your subconscious mind, and listen to your intuition.

Perhaps you realize it doesn’t matter whatever the purpose of life is or the meaning of its existence is.

What matters is what you think and how you develop your perspective. So, when you get this clarity, you will create your own life in your head regardless of when death welcomes us.

3. Are we slowly dying or are we slowly living?

What a confusing question! Are we slowly dying or living? This also represents are we dying each moment or are we living each moment?

There is a fact to each of these questions. But more than that, there is an eye-opening truth. For one moment we feel alive and the next moment we were utterly confused whether we are living to our full potential.

Our moods are completely depend on the environment we live in and the experiences we go through.

However, we need to accept the reality. Yes, we are dying slowly but choosing to live with courage, irrespective of the experiences we go through.
