On a typical day at school, endless hours are spent learning the answers to questions, but right now, we’ll do the opposite. We’re going to focus on questions where you can’t learn the answers because they’re unknown. I used to puzzle about a lot of things as a boy, for example: What would it feel like to be a dog? Do fish feel pain? How about insects? Was the Big Bang just an accident? And is there a God? And if so, how are we so sure that it’s a He and not a She? Why do so many innocent people and animals suffer terrible things? Is there really a plan for my life? Is the future yet to be written, or is it already written and we just can’t see it? But then, do I have free will? I mean, who am I anyway? Am I just a biological machine? But then, why am I conscious? What is consciousness? Will robots become conscious one day? I mean, I kind of assumed that some day I would be told the answers to all these questions. Someone must know, right? Guess what? No one knows.
Why?
Why do we ask so many questions?!!!
We learn by asking questions?
We seek understanding.
Kids are trying to understand the world around them.

Was our Big Bang a “puncture” of empty space from another universe?
And some of its dense mass squirted into our universe’s vacuum?
