Why asking why?

7 posts in this topic

Each time I ask myself why, I scroll down every possible answer. Each answer is linked with the one above. 

But once I reach the bottom, the scheme is always the same:

...because it just is.

and why is that?

I don't know, it just is.

It's a loop.

I feel like it's a circular closed chain. Every time you ask why, you could explore the adjacent links of the chain. Doing that you could even explore the chain all the way, but you cannot escape that.

Because you seek because.

Yes, it's a loop. It should indicate that the mind is not wholly in control as it thinks it is.

We ask why until we escape karma, ego. After that this tool is an impairment. Only works while in the mind\thoughts paradigm. To see the bs behind own beliefs.

Try how instead of why... it breaks the chain to a certain degree. But eventually all answers are the same, a seeking ego mind...

When you understand, you'll be able to operate the world more effectively. "What is this?" you ask, "Oh, it's an arrow, we use it to hunt down animals." You ask questions because if you didn't, survival would be difficult. Hence, the yearning to know.
Now, why ask deep questions?


"Every culture that's ever existed has operated under the illusion that it understood 95% of reality and that the other 5% would be delivered in the next 18 months, and from Egypt forward they've been running around believing they had a perfect grip on things and yet we look back at every society that preceded us with great smugness at how naive they all were. Well, it never occurs to us, then, that maybe we're whistling in the dark too!" -- Terence McKenna

Keep asking why. 

Keep asking how.

"How you see is what you see and what you see is you" - something I came up with a while ago. Most people don't profusely pose these questions to themselves and so in doing so, they shrink the potential thinking reference frame of individuals who have the capacity to contemplate existence. Thus said individuals never come close to reach their full potential because they haven't experienced the necessary social and individual contrast to reveal to themselves that it's possible.

Encouragement to reflect at increasingly deeper levels aids the world around us in ways that we could never imagine, in our increased contemplation we expand the thinking reference frame of the rest of society. Its a loop just like your why questions. 

Good stuff.

Because our mind takes cause and effect for granted.

Good times create weak men.
Weak men create hard times.
