          I think there is a solution to war, but not everyone would be willing to go with it.  The solution would be for everyone to decide to stop all aggression, regardless of how much they disagree with, or hate, their "enemy".  There may be no solution to the problem that everyone in the world will never "all agree with everyone else", but all ending wars would take would be for everyone to just stop taking aggressive action (as that applies to being the first one to be aggressive).  There's a difference between "no solution" and "a solution that not everyone is willing to go with".

            Human Nature will dictate the need for someone to control something they don't own....Thus creating aggression. I'm Sorry...History makes this clear. Wish it weren't so. The only thing that has changed...as man has become wiser and technically superior...is that now we can move to an aggresive posture quicker...and are far more capable to carry out the aggresion!

        Yes you are right.The problems you mentioned maybe a problem for the time being,the solutions are on the way.You will be happy to know that blindness can be cured even the research on artificial eyes are ongoing,experiments shows that even a total blind person can get back some limited vision.You must have seen in the past there were many life threatening disease which is totally curable now.So solutions are there,but it takes time.We all including I myself have many problems and we complain a lot and keep thinking that there is no solution of our problem.If you think there is no solution how you gonna take action to solve it.Look at the past how many technological inventions in science has made our life so easier, why do you think which is a great problem now will remain the same after few years also.There must be a solution.Sometimes adapting with the situation is also a solution.Life is not any mathematical equation that has a exact solution,but there are infinite number of solutions and our limitation is we don't love to find out solutions rather we find more pleasure in complaining.I must confess I used to complain a lot about my problems and used to blame others for my problems.But at the end I saw that there is a solution for every problem,but it depends on the person's level of acceptance of any solution.
        Apart from the physical problem like blindness you mentioned, there are many problems which are created by us,if we can create any problem we can solve it as well, there is no doubt about it.

    Any serious disease for which no treatment or cure has yet been found.

    The fact that loving someone (like children) a whole lot brings the "other side of the coin" of all the troublesome emotions (worrying about them, wanting to let them go while also sort of wishing we didn't have to, etc.)

    The fact that if we live ourselves in isolation, without being emotionally attached to others; it can be liberating (freedom from those bothersome worries, etc.) in ways, but we also miss out on a lot.

    Not everyone finds this a problem (but a lot do):  The fact that we will get to a stage in life where there is no way to truly get rid of the signs of aging on our faces without looking like mummies, dead people, or Halloween masks.    lol

    Single socks, single earrings. Where does the other sock go? Why is it that the likelihood of losing a single earring is directly proportional to the amount of money spent on a pair?

    When my children were little (two sons old enough to be squabbling and a one-year-old daughter at that time), when a squabble would start to escalate their father or I would say, "Separate!"  Since the boys didn't really want to stop playing they'd end the squabble and move on.  I was in the store with my one-year-old in the shopping cart, and she took some grocery item she shouldn't be playing with.  I took it away from her and my baby looked up and me and yelled, "Separate!!"  Apparently, she had learned that if people don't like what's going on they say, "Separate!"  lol   If a one-year-old baby can learn the concept of dealing with anger by doing something as simple as saying, "separate", I figure even the dumbest and most aggressive people in the world could theoretically learn that too.   lol

      Do you really think that the answers to these questions has anything to do with our life or it is causing any problem to you.If I ask you what was the favorite color of your great great great great grandmother's brother.What will be your answer and how does it affect to your current life.Please look at the universe and check out all the theory of creation of the universe.Once Stephen Hawking said the universe will come to big crunch but few years back he admitted the the universe would keep expanding forever.I think everybody look at his frame of reference,maybe we have developed our technology advanced enough to measure the components material of distant stars but don't you see how big the universe.Solving this questions will be reading the mind of a creator.I would like to thank the astrologist for their continuous effort to solve the mystery of the universe-perhaps they can give us some concrete evidence in near future or may not but you need to salute the courage and also I salute your courage that you are also interested to know the mystery of the origin of our universe.The question you asked
      is not a problem its a question whose answer lies inside the creator's mind-if we have to believe in any.Here also see its a question of choice.In choosing the choice humans get confused and make the options a problem.thank you.

    One thing with no solution:

      in abstract and theoretical everything may have a solution if not in all perspectives, at least in some. There are so many  world views and ways of living that is seems almost everything is possible.
       But lets leave abstractions and dig in the real world. And by this I mean the daily existence of living beings. And lets reduce it to human beings. Theoreticaly we know that the solution is to respect others lifes, believes, freedom and rights. In practice we as humankind seems to forget it.

    How to bring to concrete world the essence of tolerance? Educating and convincing others without disrespect their individuality?

    If this is not a problem, at least is a challenge.

      But, the time we take for finding a solution may become too late already. And, lack of knowledge as to how to solve it can be a reason for such delay.

    unity.

    it would seem that no matter how much we all are alike, there will always be someone or something that separates us.

    what has happened to humanity?

      For unity we need a common purpose.Though we all are alike in thinking in some extent yet we disagree in many things which do not server our own purpose,actually thinking selflessly can make us all united.Many of us have forgtten the practical use of the word  sacrifice.The reason lies in our heart not in our brain.

    I've only read the first and last pages (lazy aren't I), so I hope noones said it already, but I remember something about a famous philsopher asking after a dream "am I a philosopher dreaming of being a butterfly or a butterfly dreaming of being a philosopher" and there being no way to answer. No questions about the fundamental nature of reality are answerable because we have no way to know what exists outside of our limited experience - like Dick Chaney's infamous 'unknown unknowns'.

    well  a problem without a solution would probably be bad company.... though that is only banter

      a solution without a problem would definitely be better.

    A problem with no sulution is not a problem anymore.

    War is a problem because we are able to imagine solutions
    to solve it. And sometimes we stop wars.
    Though it's not a problem for all of us humans.
    Some can't live without it.
    So, there's a problem there...

    Death is not a problem, because "by design" there is no known solution to stop it in the end.
    Or maybe is it a kind of solution in itself ? In which case it would be a problem...

    getting a bit confused...

    Every solution is temporary. Then we die.

      Then death is a solution.If I try to think every problem is a kind
      of experience then I find no problem only some events which are part of our life.Perhaps problem is an integral part of the learning process.

      God is not a problem.It's a confusion of our mind about who actually God is creates lots of misunderstanding among people..Perhaps his horizon is out of our reach if we have to think about in terms of creation.

    Terrorism. Some people think that if you stop "injustices," terrorism would stop. I beg to differ. The kind of terrorism we have this day and age won't stop with reduction of "injustices."

    The injustices at work here are centuries old and so there is no solution to it, except if we could turn back the clock and go back a few hundreds of years, when the predominant powers of the world were not the same as they are now!!!
