So Michael Samadhi asked "why?" Which made me think of the kids and all those basic questions they ask that turn out to be really difficult to answer.
First I thought, "why what???"
Then I thought, "why not?"
And it occurred to me that this question is a bit like being given a math problem without a formula--it's easy when you have the correct formula, you follow the steps in order, and voila, there's your answer.
Now if you don't know the formula, you can still possibly find the correct answer, but your margin of error is going to be vast.
"Why" by itself is a bit like a math problem without a formula. Except I think that as opposed to coming to many wrong answers, it is possible that there are no wrong answers.
Because we are human, and we are always searching for solutions. Sometimes though, the question is more important than the answer.
So why not?
