Why assume that there is an answer at all?

I am not yet satisfied with what I think was the start of the Universe, and existance itself for that matter. Either everything has always existed, everything came from 'nonexistance', or everything, including nothing, came from 'something', or... a copmbination thereof. I feel more comfortable with one of the first two.

It is also possible that there is no answer, and that we are all part of a sadistic game.

At any rate, we, as humans, are dumb. I thought that we were very smart, but once I realized that we are only comparing ourselves to other Earthly animals, it did not seem as if we were. Take, for instance, the size of our brains. Normal humans' brains range from 1,000 to 2,000 grams. That is nowhere close to any sort of limit. I am convinced that we will make computers more intelligent that us within my lifetime... but thats a thread for another day.

Warm Regards,

Pjillip Martin
