Our generation's most brilliant minds are burning CPU time explaining, to our least functional minds, the basic concept of the link between sex and gender; despite having more knowledge than ever before, we have less wisdom. It begs the simple question: what should we spending our time on?

Well, there are places to start. The most obvious being what we do not know yet. Knowledge is supposed to be produced by our universities, which are in flames.

We can one even begin?

"The Last Unknowns: Deep, Elegant, Profound Unanswered Questions About the Universe, the Mind, the Future of Civilization, and the Meaning of Life" by John Brockman is available on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Last-Unknowns-Unanswered-Questions-Civilization/dp/0062897942

It can also be read on Google Books, here:

Its contents are quite fascinating.

Those Extraordinary Questions: The Full List

When reading through the subjects our knowledge producers are contemplating, several things are immediately apparent.

A. Few, if any, are even concerned about the real questions, let alone curious about their potential answers.

B. Their interest is predominantly in the future, rather than the past.

C. They have a generalized contempt for religion, yet indicate their leanings toward metaphysics.

D. Their questions are abstract, rather than material or practical.

This mindset is most pronounced in the platitude of "following the science" during the Covid pandemic: the "abstract" modelling has all but destroyed all the things which make human life colourful.
