It used to be so simple, for humans to believe that their existence on earth is the be-all and end-all of their universe, them being placed right smack in the middle of it. Now that scince has proved the falsity of man's
centrality in all of creation, by proposing the existence of multiple other universes much unlike our own, would man lost his horizon of perpetually asking the when and how but most importantly, the why of his existence?
No because men would be men with the desire to know.
I agree that man has this almost boundless desire and need for knowledge. The question is, will having the answers to most (but not all ) of his questions lead him further astray from his creator?
The knowledge of creator is not bound in knowing many or few things, it is in knowing Truth. For all things are defined by it. The one who knows it cannot stray.
In this our age of relativism and reductionism, what one considers his truism might be someone else's skepticism.
So then we see this age functioning exactly as intended.
As long as truth remain a plurality, death will continue to reign. This is why upto now men has not found a solution to their death, because the have not yet seen the singularity of Truth which is the only and perfect One. So when men see the singularity of Truth, then they are no longer many but a singularity of a united One, who have triumph over death.
These are the ones that are responsible of the closing of this age and the ushering of every new age.
For those who have not seen, were not destined to see during this age but their seeing is reserved for another age...and their good works which they did is given unto those who have seen, so that nothing is wasted in death.
So unless a man seeks after the singularity of Truth he will never see, and would remain sceptical which is his own death.
And the purpose for this age is for the perfecting of Truth, so one should not despair, for Truth will come to him in his own time.
Man's search for truth ( be it material or spiritual) in all its varied manifestations and permutations will obviously take most of his conscious (and yes unconscious) existence. The fact is, when you talk about the One Absolute Truth, some folk's eyes glaze over because they believe that the concept is alien to their perception of what is real.
You also talk about the Singularity of Truth.... is there such a unifying force that could bundle Truth without it fraying at the edges? As you know, it is at the edges that non-believers are constantly nippy-napping their variegated belief systems ( objectivism, reductionism, relativism, atheism , secularism) that they hope would un-teether it from the human condition.
Man in the embodiment of the singularity of Truth.
but he cannot remain so indefinitely....
When he become aware of himself, he becomes so united in himself by Truth and unto Truth as existence itself. That point that he ceases to appear as a man.
If he remains unaware of this, he is so divided against himself that he ceases to exist as a man and death is fulfilled in him.
The variations of men, their kingdoms and other things is so because me see but not clearly the contents of all existence, so they make and create of themselves and for themselves so as to fulfill their desires.
These things they see as life, but since their creations are incomplete or lacking Truth, they serve to fulfill death in themselves.

What was before Big Bang? Scientists have the following idea-"According to their calculations, time and space had a finite beginning that corresponded to the origin of matter and energy."3 The singularity didn't appear in space; rather, space began inside of the singularity. Prior to the...

Here is an idea I've been pondering lately--it may be a symptom of growing older, now that I'm only about a year and a half from turning 70, and therefore knowing that my life is at least half or more over, given the general longevity statistics for this day and age.I would love to see others' take...

I've heard that atheists claim that the point of their existence is to leave the world in a better place. As we know, the world is never a better place. Why struggle through life, learn to love and then die? What's the point? Death makes a mockery of life then. If you are a...
