      Brains.

      Is it possible that there are answers to questions people have raised but the human mind is not advanced enough physiologically to come up with answers to them?

      Yes, I would think so. Brains are like supercomputers, they have limits.

      Yes, it's possible. Even if I were somehow able to determine that it was impossible, I could be wrong, since the brain is fallable.

      As language separates man from other animals, it also separates man from man. Linguistic abiity has to have a physiological foundation in order to psychologically manipulate language through linguistic principles. Most people use language by rote, and cannot see basic contradictions. Common questions are never really answered for them, they simply repeat one thing one moment and another thing another.

      Another component is exercise. One can exercise the mind to be more competent.

      The human mind is the last to evolve in history, and it takes the longest to mature.

      If you want examples of the answer to your question, see some of my work. It took me ten years to understand and solve the Delian Problem--the anwer only involved understanding a basic principle which man repeats, but does not practice.

      More likely there are better questions we're not capable of asking.

      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      It's not more likely, it's beyond a doubt, true. If we can ask as question, we can answer it.
      If you think about it, this must be true. The only reason we couldn't answer a question is if our minds are incapable of comprehending such an issue which was raised.
      But since the question was asked, we must be able to comprehend it, and thus answer it, eventually.

      Phil touched on what I was gonna say, except I was gonna say it better. I think that there would be many cases in which someone could know the answer, or could visualize the answer, but is unable to convey that answer using the limited vocabulary we have, even in order to fully understand what he as figured out. Like, I pretty much know everything, because I am so smrt, but I can't explain it to you guys because of the limitations of language.

      I know huh, it's so frustrating!
      Technically though, our brains are capable of amazing calculation, most people just can't get their brain to do it. Only a very limited number of people can do it.
      And I bet even some of them aren't using their full ability.

      The only way to kill a zombie is with a steak through the heart.

      If by 'zombie' you mean middle-aged man, then yes.

      Actually, by "zombie" I meant "Japanese train".... pardon me "Japanees train".
      By "chest" I meant "zombie".
      By "steak" I meant "head".
      And by "the" I meant "splunge".

      I think you're exactly right. Language can not express and convey certain things. When we speak, a portion of what we actually mean is lost.

      The human brain is not the limiting factor anymore, it's how those human brains network that matters.
