To be in the mystery or to be in the know?

Remember, when you leave this earth for another journey, you can take with you nothing that you have received, but only what you have given. And the real trick to life is not to be in the know but to be in the mystery, as the unknown holds more potential than the limited options of a crisis plan. According to the quantum physics, everything is probabilistic within the universe, and the occurrence of an event is always ruled by the mere probability of its happening. Since a particle has no definite position, energy, momentum or time in quantum mechanics, the theory seems to work flawlessly. The Heisenberg Uncertainty principle tells us that we can only measure these quantities within certain accuracy and beyond that accuracy they are uncertain. This is not simply a technological issue of measurement but the actual nature of the universe. Though hard to face and accept for some, beyond a certain point, the universe is in a state of mixed probabilities, so down to a limit we cannot look any deeper, and the universe will always remain uncertain.

    I prefer to be in the know. It’s still much safer. Life is too short to predict what’s gonna happen next.

    For me, mystery sounds fine. I would be too bored if I knew it all, and the thought of lacking the essential joy and desire of embracing the unknown future, once and for all, is a sad, a very sad, and an extremely frustrating possibility that leaves no room for emotional growth and excitement.
