I'm conducting a survey: if you could know the answer to one question what would that question be? I figured the bunch that hangs around here would have good answers... thanks!:)

Nah, I'm not yet certain what mine would be. I'll post once I figure it out though.

Will String Theory turn out to be a correct description of our Universe? :)

My question would be:

My question is:

How come the creative forces made the microscopic world so similar to the Universe's enormous world.
(or why is everything round?)

Good ones so far. :D
My personal biggie on an intellectual level right now is "why does an Ulam Spiral (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulam_spiral)exist?" because I learned about them recently and they freak me out. (Prime numbers aren't random?!? WHA?!?) On a personal level I'd like to know if a certain boy likes me back, but that's another story. ;)

Have you told him you like him?

I do have another question.

Should physical life be the other way around? We should be born with everything and endeaver to share it/lose it/donate it before we die because we cannot take it with us. !

is it healthy to laugh?
is laughing is contagious?

Eric Vaxxine
2006-Apr-05, 02:44 PM
Oh yes indeed.

I have yet another question of a semi-serious nature:

Are we lilely to run out of breathable air? We are burning more oxygen with our cars and such like....should we worry? Will we start gasping like fish in oxygenless water, soon?

I'm not trying to get into trouble with the rules of this board, but the question I would ask is "Is there life or some other sort of existence after death?"

I think you'd have a good chance of maximizing your longterm happiness by having flexible perspectives and a permanently positive outlook (even in your sleep).

How can I understand consciousness and free will (which depend on each other)?

By setting your first priority as figuring out what makes you happy.

I like that. Reminds me of the opening of Fear of Physics.

Imagine the cow is a sphere.

Or . . .

If the universe is the answer, what is the question?

farmerjumperdon

Sort of like love. Don't need to understand it - just live it. Love that is.

Consciousness is just the accident that happens when living tissue by chance arranges itself in a manner that allows for self-recognition. Self-recognition is then HEAVILY selected for, . . . and the rest is history, or humanity, take your pick.

I figure a person could go in different directions with the kind of question they could ask. Do I ask a question that settles a scientific issue so that we can all share the knowledge, or do I ask something so personal I wouldn't ever share it?

Oops, there goes my question...

Andromeda, what about the uncertain boys? Don't you want to know about them too?

H'mm my wish has not yet been granted, that does not explain much to me. I'd worked out that emotions are involved probably necessarily, that it's selected for but for that to happen it has to be possible that there is such a thing and that's what no-one understands. Self-recognition mmm, immune system has that but is not conscious OTOH I can be conscious or conscious of something without in that moment being conscious of myself.

Hmmm...that was a missed opportunity. :( Yet, with the fundementals, I can solve for stellarchromology, too! [Perhaps I've grown accustomed to milking heliochromolgy...why kill it. ;)] :)

I've always wondered about a few q's.....

Will I (my brain, soul w/e) be able to feel any pain while someone's autopsying my cadaver?

What is the purpose of our existence?

Will I ever get married?

If a stripper gets B***** implants, can she write it off on her taxes as a business expense?

George

What pains have you encountered so far in this area? Probably not.


What is the purpose of our existence?
To ask such a question, and for the meaning of life. ;)


Will I ever get married?
Yes, but not if you keep asking.


If a stripper gets B***** implants, can she write it off on her taxes as a business expense? This also may be detremental to your future marriage. You don't have to keep abreast of everything. :)
