Some people are always trying to figure out what life is all about. They can adopt beliefs which can be reasonably believed to far out outlandish concoctions that are believed only by themselves or perhaps includes a few friends.
The problem is that once they have it figured out they stop asking anymore and carve it in granite for all time. This is when they can ignore contradictions to their answer and fit it under the umbrella their belief creates.
Anyone who just has to have an answer ends up with some sort of general belief broad enough to allow them to say "you just have to believe". End of story.
What if life is just a mystery to be unveiled as circumstances arise that ask new questions for us to ponder and answer in a process of discovery. There is no finite answer as life is constantly changing and evolving.
Perhaps life will always be a mystery for us to just enjoy and appreciate as we live it.
