I am sure one day my daughter is going ask me “why 1 plus 1 is 2?” and I am going to go nuts to answer this. This very thought generated in me a basic question “What is the limit to ask why , meaning till what extent one can ask why ?”
Let’s try to answer above question of why 1+1 is 2 itself (explanation is not to my daughter , she wont understand it as of now).
First hand answer : “because one apple and one apple makes two apples”.
Question: But both apples may not be same, will still it make 2 apples ? why ?
Answer: I think size wont matter while counting.
Question : If I cut one apple into two pieces, then along with second apple , how many apples I will have?
Answer: “Well” , umm.. in this case apples are 2 but count is 3 . (Ah!!)
Question : That means , size does matter.
Answer : Ok, Let me explain in you by another way. 2is a number and 1 is a number. 2 is away from 1 by 1. (:O), and thats why when we add 1 with 1 it becomes 2.
Question: Why 2 is away from 1 by 1 ?
Answer : We have number line which makes the two numbers separated from each other with some logical distance. For equal distance intervals we name it by number. e.g. 1 , 2 ,3 ,4,5 are equidistant intervals.
Question: Why we have number line ?
Answer : That’s our base of mathematics.
Question : Why we need base to a subject ?
Answer : This is common practice to make a base i.e. foundation and then create the whole system. And that works , rather it has worked in past for many such systems.
Question : why common practice is trusted to a level to make a base and then system?
Answer: Because it works.
Question : Why something has to work to make it a common practice?
Answer : Because if it does not work then we can not use it .
And the series goes on….. A point comes in the series where ..
Answer: “there is a GOD who created universe, and thats why it is like that.
Question : then who created this GOD?
Answer : GOD does not need creation .
Question: Why he does not need creation ?
Answer: BECAUSE HE IS THE GOD!!
Question : Why HE is the GOD???
And it never ends!!!!!
Main idea of this blog is to tell you that every single thing in this universe , be it logical , physical , virtual ..anything , is questionable and questions are limitless, there is no limit .
It is limitless both ways. You can go solar system, Galaxy, Universe , multiverse etc i.e. outward. And you can go towards atom, electron , boson etc.. i.e. inward.
Now question is does human has limit to know the limitless nature?
And that’s what is called Science , an approach to study limitless nature and break the today’s known boundary to tomorrow’s unknown secrets.
