Our curiosity drives us to explore everything imaginable. But what is the cause of our curiosity? It is the pursuit of truth that drives our curiosity. The fact that we all strive for truth makes it clear what state we are in.

It is the state of untruth.

We do not know why the universe exists and what our purpose in it is. So we don’t know if it came from an intelligence on purpose. If you go through your life with open eyes, seeing everything as it is and as works like a clockwork, common sense tells you that all this cannot actually have happened by chance and without a very specific reason.

To move from the state of untruth to the state of truth, there is no way around asking the right questions. Science exclusively asks the questions „how?“ everything works. The question of „why?“, on the other hand, has always been a question of faith. But faith is not knowledge.

As long as science only asks „how?“, we have no way to escape the state of untruth.

If our most intelligent minds had already known by now how to scientifically ask the question „why?“, we would have found out the truth long ago and been able to live in a much more fantastic world in which we consciously and joyfully follow our destiny quite purposefully.

To whom does one scientifically ask the question „why?“ ?
