Some questions you worked out the answers on your own as you grew up. But there is always one question. One mystery that no one could give you a satisfactory explanation for. Some people even told you to stop wasting your time on it. “This kind of things is for scientists to find out.” “Focus more on your homework and stop asking unnecessary questions!” Gradually you stopped asking questions. You have forgotten how to be curious.
