An eight year old boy asked me, “What’s the point of all this, why are we here…how did all this get here?” (He waves his arms in a big circle indicating the world and everything in it)
First, I complimented him on his question. This is a big question for such a young person. This is the question that has been asked since the beginning of human history. Great thinkers attempt to answer. They continue to ponder the question, the question being more important than the illusive answer. That is what humans do. Why? Don’t know.
This child also believes in multiple universes….and Santa Claus.
