Questioning Your Existence: 42 Deep Questions to Ask Yourself

42 Deep Questions to Ask Yourself
We are surrounded with so many elements around us that it wouldn't be wrong to say that each of us has a philosophical, in-depth side to our existence. At some point in our lives, we are likely to ask ourselves some deep questions that prompt us to think and take action.

"Enough madness? Enough? And how do you measure madness?"
― Grant Morrison, 'Batman: Arkham Asylum'
We don't know whether to call it an advantage, or a disadvantage; but it is a fact that is unlikely to be changed―humans are always taught; conditioned to believe a set of rights and wrongs, things that are allowed and things that are forbidden, things that are real and those that are marked as unreal. While this learning has enabled mankind to reach the pinnacle of evolution, and rule all creatures that breathe on this planet, it has also―to some extent―created a curiosity, a rebellion perhaps, in many minds.

In the process of categorizing the world and its components, there comes a phase where we tend to wonder about an alternate possibility. History stands witness to the fact that it is this alternate, out-of-the-box thinking that has resulted in some phenomenal findings and inventions. We all have thought deep when it comes to the world, but have we ever given ourselves a serious thought? The following section consists of some super deep questions that will make you wonder about yourself and the world that you are surrounded with.
