Infinite Onion

Richard Feynman in an interview said:

“I can live with doubt and uncertainty, and not knowing. I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong.”

We don’t need religions nor god to explain uncertainty, doubts or things that we don’t know. Questions like ‘why we are here?’ might be pointless as there might be no purpose hidden behind our existence.

An inquisitive mind is all we need in our journey of learning. New answers surface other questions. New knowns expose other unknowns. If there is any purpose in life it may as well be the purpose of unfolding the next unknown. It is like peeling the layers of an infinite onion.
