The Infinity

Ever since the existence of the cavemen, humans always have questions, such as, "Why is the sky blue?" or "Why is the SEA blue?". Over time, we've managed to solve these simple questions, but when we know the answers to these questions, we start asking EVEN MORE questions instead of getting satisfied for the answers we already got. When we discover why the sea and the sky is blue, we start to ask more questions such as, "Why is the SOIL brown?". When we know why the soil is brown, we start asking even more questions, and so on. This isn't the first time I've ever made a post like this, (come to think of it, MOST of my posts are like this) but this post is the most directed one towards human curiosity.

I'm not saying that human yearning is a bad thing, but it can be a little annoying if you ask a person too much about the mysteries of the universe, because I have personally encountered thousands of questions asked by my younger brother and sister. They've asked me about the mysteries of science and stuff like that, but mostly they ask me about video games and movies. ("Jason, in Despicable Me 2, is Gru the bad guy?") I don't mean to offend any curious youngster out there, but here's my advice to young, knowledge-yearning children: Don't bombard a single person with multiple bamboozling questions. This might anger the question-answerers and they might get impatient and eventually, stop answering your questions altogether. (Of course, unless the "questionee" is the patient type) Tip: To anger the question-answerer, ask the same question over and over. This has been proven by my family and is very effective.

One of the biggest mysteries of the universe are if there is alien life out there. You know what, scratch that. That's not such a massive mystery compared to the following question: "Are there other solar systems out there?". If you ask me, this is the biggest bamboozling question of them all. Why? Because, when we humans know there are even more solar systems out there, we might ask, "Are there more universes out there?". If it's true, God knows what else we might ask next.

I'm not saying human curiosity is a bad thing, but on the contrary, it's actually quite good. Why? Well, when we discover more stuff, we know how stuff works and curiosity helps us understand the way of the world. There will be no limit of curiosity, but other than its ability to annoy people and its existence in science lessons, curiosity is a good thing.
