@Sabina : i said 'no ONE answer' .. i wanted to convey that there are different answers like you said .. My answer is - I don't have a clue!

Somebody wanting to know my answer is a first. Feels really really good. Thanks :) My compliments on your ear!

What am I about - For starters, till I dig deep, the good feeling on being asked my answer tells me I like sharing feelings :)

The unconcerned say aye!

Only you can answer that question for yourself.

The most important thing about the answer is that you realize you can't fully understand the truth, if there even is one.

This way we can all appreciate and tolerate each other's different answers. It's best if we can even expand our own paradigms by attempting to understand each other's.

The question is a one liner for spiritual quest. So just like to share statement by Stefan Hawking as he concludes The brief history of time.

However, if we do discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason – for then we would know the mind of God.

This statement did touch me, especially the last sentences. May be it opens a door of hope or slams one of reality right at your face. It would be nice to know what you folks thinks of this.
