Hi,
Name any three experiences which you went through, and which have not been explained by science yet. I wanted to find out, if, in reality, there is something called mystery which has not yet been explained by science.

Easy. My existence. Color. And, self-awareness.

Sorry. By color, I meant crayola - not race.

I heard a noise in the hallway last week that sounded like something fell over. I investigated and nothing seemed out of place. I never found out what made the sound, nor has science explained it. (So far as I know, no scientists have been assigned to study the problem, which may be why.)

Science thrives on mystery, otherwise there wouldn't be anything to investigate.

Isn't the fact that there are a huge number of scientists around the world doing research kind of a hint that there are many things that science hasn't explained yet?

That makes you sound like you believe they ever will solve "all the mysteries?" I know you know better than that! We will never know everything, right? We will never have "the total Truth." That is only an illusion held by believers of the world's old religions. All we can do is keep improving the accuracy of what we believe. That means that we scientists will always have a challenge in front of us. We can go on forever. There will always be a need for us.

Even after we outgrow all the old religions. . . .

A granbt committee once asked Einstein what resultes he expected from a proposed research project. His reply was something like the following.

Now we know.

Yeah, one time I was star gazing and I saw a flying object which was going extremely fast, but it kept changing directions in right angles without slowing down one bit. A strange experience indeed.

In the hallway?

I think it must have been some drunk.
