    Why are people willing to risk so much, to gain so little, while driving?

    I'm usually not surprised by what I see while driving, but I'm always amazed!

    Is there such thing as a 'kiss my ring' mentality at an RV park?

    Is it truly better to be happy than rich? ... If you are in debt.

    That debt is often what causes the unhappiness, but you don't have to be rich to be happy.

    At the mercy of you all for answering a year old question and opening up a can of worms...The Devil at the "FALL OF MAN". Here's one: Why is it that the most important questions in life never have a truly objective answer?

    Not only can we now answer most questions of real meaning,, the ones that are very tricky can be put under actual testable scenarios.

    The biggest question I can think of, why people committing some of the worst crimes are not punished?

    If a person is in debt, that is, owes more than is able to pay, is that person rich?

    Good point.

    But what if you could only be one or the other. Happy or Rich. But not both. Which is better?

    Happiness is a fleeting emotion. It changes rather quickly depending on ones circumstances. Like when a squirrel finds a nut, or your new flashey arrives in the mail. It's a kite in the wind. Contentment is a much better endeavor. It's more of an anchor, keeping you securely moored during the best, and worst life will surely bring.

    On the other hand:

    Money can't buy happiness, but spending money, can make you happy.

    I can understand that space must be infinite, as, what would be outside of it? Space that is finite would be harder to understand.

    I can understand that time must be infinite, with no beginning or end, as, what would have been before that, or, after that? Time that is not infinite would be harder to understand.

    What I have more trouble with is why there's STUFF in that space, which would have needed to exist for an infinite amount of time.

    An empty infinite space, existing forever, is easier to understand than the same thing with stuff in it.

    Matter and energy are essentially different forms of the same thing...

    Maybe there is a relationship between time and space that creates energy/matter?

    If THAT'S the case, merely having space exist creates energy.

    That would explain the existence of matter.

    Logically, I don't see another explanation.



    (Unless energy creates space, which to me doesn't make as much sense, or, time AND space are both merely constructs, and only energy actually exists, which I could see as a real possibility)

    I'm not trying to change this to a theological debate, merely putting this out for ponderance.

    "What if there is a supreme being / Creator who 'wrote' the laws of physics, and therefore can rewrite/bend said laws when necessary?"

    If it were "necessary" to re-write them, would that not mean the first try was wrong?



    It would be more likely that we are the ones trying to guess what the laws ARE, rather than some re-writes being made on the fly.

    So, does space cause energy to exist, or, are time and space both constructs, and only energy exists?

    just energy (space has no walls & time/gravity are in bed together

    More importantly,, physical properties are not written, they just are.
