The ultimate question
« on: May 03, 2009, 03:26:39 PM »
I have determined what the ultimate question is but I am having a problem with the ultimate answer.

The ultimate question is....

Why?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I suppose "why not" may be an excellent counterpart to that question.

I figure the question "Are you certain?" ranks pretty high up there. ;)

Isn't "Why not" another question?

the answer might depend on why you are asking why?

It seems as though you know the answer to your own question, but your different personalites are in conflict. Are you arguing? Such turmoil Jerry, I hope you can work it out, if not you may want to pm Tillie. ;)

I thought people stopped asking "WHY?" when they turned 8years old?  That is also the age that "Because" and "I told you so" stop working.
"WHY?"
"WHY?""WHY?""WHY?"
"WHY?"
"WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?""WHY?"

Precisely! I had this Q & A on a philosophy test back in college -- I wrote half a page trying to explain the philosohophical underpinnings of "why"; I also failed the test (too wordy).
It is what it is.......except when it isn't.
