Why the hunger?
Why do you suppose that certain people hunger and completely obssess to look for the origins and causations of life and the universe?
The reason for my question is because I simply don't have (nor have I ever had) more than a flirting curiousity on what those might be.
And this comes to the inevitable distinction between 'wants' and 'needs', which of course, is the basis of Maslow's "Heirarchy Of Needs".
Simply put, I don't have a 'need' to know, nor that much of a 'want' to know, for that matter.
I'm content to just 'be'.
I don't like obssessions. I don't like the anxiety, the urgency, and instabilities, that accompany them.
Why do others feel differently about obssessing about the origins and causations of life and the universe? I'm most curious.
What are your views, theories, perspectives, on any, and all that I've said? About yourself, others, or both?
I keep asking myself " Are they just playin' stupid, or are they just plain stupid?..."
