Answer- Why not

It seems that such a question is now obvious to most people, and I admire such a response.

It is never the why, it is simply acting upon the why. There is no real response as to why we must answer a question of why, it is simply questioning the question itself, though there are many other answers that would still be acceptable, the meaning behind this specific answer is what I wanted to shed light on. Picture this scenario.

If you are actually in an exam and this was all about your success, will you still go against such a question? Even if you must follow guidelines and structure, would you still give the same answer? Or will the fear of what if take hold of you?

So this whole test is simply questioning logic. Is the questioned flawed? Or is it simply the answer that is flawed? In this case it is neither that are actually wrong, it is simply a question which has endless possibilities, or just the simple response.

It's like when we see the glass half empty, or half full.

When we see it half full, we only allow ourselves to accept that glass will never be full, but if we see it half empty, that means the amount of possibilities are endless in order to become optimistic about how we shall fill that half of the glass and accepting the half we have as a starting point.

Why not, it is like that empty half of the glass, we question it. Instead of accepting the question of why ( half full )

It is the simplicity of human nature that goes about answering such a question of why with why not. It means that we are capable of pursuing more than what we believe to be the correct response, logic can be defied by our willingness to envision an alternative, something that can move people, change their way of thinking, create strong minded people that have the tolerance to question such things.

And all this time that we may have thought about why? When I have explained more about why not, I think there is something beautiful about freewill, and to question the logicAL response.


Shit why does that sound like somebody with a useless philosophy degree would spew out. There are enough real problems in the world to deal with. There is absolutely zero need to worry about such abstract concepts .

I have no degree, this is simply what I understand.

Real problems? Or are they just excuses? I see our problems as something we are told about, and not what we understand, we can experience the reality of a problem, but what do we actually do to solve it?

The way I see it the world has many problems that cannot be understood simply for the reason of power. Would I tell you how to fix a car if it meant giving away the power of a profitable exchange? Or would you simply show me step by step where the problem is, how to fix it, and what to do for free.

I have time, you have time, everyone has time, but that doesn't mean that understanding such an abstract thought process would be deemed useless. It's like saying teaching someone how to fix a problem for free is useful, but in reality it is a waste of time, and it is something that is useless in comparison to properly maintaining a healthy relationship between profit and time.

Mate I wouldn't call Terrorism, Widespread Starvation, A fragile global economy, increasingly strained relationships between the global superpowers , and the spread of lethal diseases hyperbole created by news networks.

And we don't need abstract concepts and our head in the clouds. We need noses to the grindstone and everyone doing some actual work not wasting time with philosophy.

The way I see it.

People have been hungry for hundreds of years, so why haven't the billionaires helped feed the hungry? Instead they feed themselves in excess. We have the power to instantly stop it, but we don't, because that is our excuse.

We need terrorism to fuel the war on materials and minerals, it is a war for land and control, why else would it exists. Just like children being able to aquire assault rifles and bombs, why does it happen? We let terrorism happen so we can fill our lives with fear, and accept the words of the corupt to order our freedom. This is how the world works.

Having my head in the clouds seems a lot better than hearing the world's Bullshit excuses over and over again. I got my nose to the grindstone, I'm busting my ass daily, but I'm not complaining. I get paid, I go home, I live, I fight for what I believe in. So maybe thinking outside of the box is a little more rewarding than believing in this corupt civilization we are living in.

Every time I work with CEOs, they always tell me "Keep asking WHY until you get to the root of the problem". There must be some enlightening answers, I guess.

Why not? << While it is philosophical, it can also apply to the above method of business procedure.

Philosophical debate is how geniuses relax. When they're not crunching numbers, trying to unlock the secrets of subatomic physics, conducting mega billion dollar transactions, or otherwise inventing new technologies, they're having a nice philosophical discussion.

If it weren't for philosophy, we wouldn't have diplomacy. Literature would not be what it is without philosophy. There probably wouldn't be any manga nor anime. Notice how the best anime and manga, that have stood the test of time, have deep philosophical discussions in them? While the ones that only have fan service and pointless violence are easily forgotten?

We need philosophy, but it's not for everyone, I guess. I have to admit, that I'm not a deep thinking philosopher type, but I while I won't spend tons of time thinking about it, I don't mind spending a couple of minutes here and there listening in on such discussions. It can be enlightening sometimes.

Sounds nice but the answer couldn't be more wrong. The first post was written so strangely that I thought it must be a riddle and I'm a little bit disappointed right now that it's this answer. That's the answer people will give you when they have no idea what they're talking about.
Completely free will is an illusion. No human will ever be able to decide something just by free will. Nothing anywhere happens just because "why not?". "Why not?" is the answer if you don't want to think about something and accept things like they are. "Why not?" nowadays is like "God" 150 years ago.

Free will is a choice, and there are many people who choose to live a life of understanding rather than logic. The answer of why not is simply our ability to question logic, and create our own understanding.

It's not like I'm asking you why is the sky blue? I'm not asking you why do we use physics. I'm simply asking.... why? It is our free will to provide any answer we decide, and all of those answers are no more wrong than they are right. The answer I have provided was simply the choice of free will at its core, to question the question, because we can.
