The Answer to the Question ?


To sit by the window and stare out at the wide world, gives us a glimpse of Life.

What is LIFE?

How much do you know about it?

How much do I know about it?

To say about myself I know absolutely nothing. Scientists have spent decades in laboratories, working out complex equations and crunching near to impossible algorithms with the help of top of the line computers and other research equipment, only to end up with another set of thoroughly frustrating equations and theorems.


Each step of progress seems to be taking us away from the answer to the question of our existence. How did human beings come in existence? Ok, we have well accepted the fact that all life on earth evolved from uni-cellular organisms. But then where did the uni-cellular organism emerge from?

Surely Adam and Eve were not the organisms.

Was it a higly complex chemical reaction that triggered the existence of Life,

Or

Is life a fragment of the Big-Bang that sprouted into existence on the planet Earth?

This questions seems to be more important than the quest for the Holy Grail, or the existence of God. At least it is so for an agnostic like me.

Delving deeper into the study of the Universe means losing yourself into an ocean where every direction leads you to absolutely nowhere.

Sometimes I wonder that has man been looking for the truth in the right direction? Has his search begun on the right path? Scholars of the past have bequeathed to the modern scientists a staggering amount of notes and research data, to compile into simpler and more understandable data. But piling up more research onto this already so humongous pile has led us nowhere.

To end this essay full of questions daunting my mind, I did like to say that answer to the question of our existence, our end, our reason to live, and the purpose of our creation lies within us. Its not with the help of gadgets that we can solve these questions.

The answer to the one question is different for every individual and it depends upon him to ponder over it and figure it out applying his own reasoning and logical abilities. And probably this is how the one truth may be sought.

Till then Adios amigos………
