    Why are there more questions than answers while a simple question has several answers?

    While there are many answers for a single question, why is it that there are more questions than answers?

    This happens for various reasons. #1 The question being asked is around a hot topic or something most people can relate to or have a strong opinion about. This will cause them to post an answer. #2 If the question is under a category few people are following then they won't get an email notifying them a question has been asked. #3 If the person asking the question has large number of followers those people are notified when there is a new hub or question from that writer. It's been my observation that "gender relations", "current events", and controversial issues lead to more responses.
    Last but not least some questions have been asked so many times such as "What is love?", "How do you know you've met the one?"  What would you do if your mate cheated on you? or "Do you believe the world will end this December?...etc After awhile people who are following those topics get tired of answering the same questions! :-)

    This situation is possible in my view because we live in a multi-dimensional universe. Various facets and subtleties take the form and structure of a personal opinion, but really the nature of a personal opinion is informed - and made possible - by underlying structures that manifest through the gateway of perception.

    Er, or something like that.

    After an answer is received, the question is better understood and/or people start thinking at a high level (Bloom's Taxonomy).  If no answer is presented, people don't feel they have enough information.

    There are more questions then answers because life is full of many mysteries that are still unsolved. Often, when one finally finds an answer to their question, it only leads to more questions.
