    Oxford Dictionary entry for 'Why:'
    "Interrogative adverb
    for what reason or purpose:
    why did he do it?
    [with negative] used to make or agree to a suggestion:
    why don't I give you a lift?"

    Does that help? =p

    A good approach Skisy, the standard dictionary answer is a perfectly valid one. It makes 'why; relate to something  that is going on or that is being considered. Why don't I give you a lift depends on the person being questioned making a journey. Why relates to How? Who? What? Where? & When?  It implies motive, where somethings may just occur - The Universe exists because a god or gods had some motive to create it or it simply is, with there being no reason why other than the ones we subjectively assign to it's existence.
