A question about questions

Recommended Posts

Can the enquiring spirit in us be ever quenched?

 

e.g.

 

1. Suppose, science finds the fundamental particle...next question can be...What mechanism caused this fundamental particle?....or.....How it came about? If someone says, it has been always there...one can ask...What is the mechanism through which something can be eternal? and so on....

 

2. Suppose, someone finds God and says that He/She/It exists eternally/necessarily...next question can be...Why only He is a necessarily existing creature and not some other one? or What mechanism leads to necessary existence? and so on....

 

In a nutshell, can questions ever end? Any thoughts, not necessarily serious ones....

There's always more to learn.

Whether you actually want to learn more is your own choice.

Does it mean that concepts like 'Fundamental Reality', Fundamental Truth'......rather 'anything fundamental' are logically impossible because such concepts also lead to further questions?

I wouldn't say that, personally. Any questions you ask about fundamentals, be they a god, or some other fundamental truths of reality necessarily turn to questions of epistemology and nihilism. So these questions of some fundamentals turn towards other fundamental questions that are, by their nature, unanswerable, or if they are, unknowable, at least, without some set of assumptions.
