A group of mysteries makes our lives unclear, while some questions could not be answered no matter how many millennia, centuries and decades have passed.
Philosophy can further explore problems that science can not. Philosophers have for centuries speculated on some human problems by asking ourselves how we might have not yet solved a dilemma or a mystery.
Here are the questions that even today did not have an answer.
1. Why is there something rather than nothing?
Our presence in the universe is a very strange thing to say in words. Dailyness makes us take our existence for good. But occasionally we get into a state of consciousness and ask “Why are these things in the universe and why are they governed by these laws? Why do we all exist?”
No physical fact can explain why we have these laws instead of other laws. Observing the universe, philosophers often ask why this happens rather than something else and why we all exist in the middle of “nothing” around us.
2. Is Our Universe Real?
This is a classic question. How can we know that those around us are true and that we are not involved in the illusion brought to us by an invisible force? The question has led researchers to analyze the brain and seek the parts they can stimulate.
Another deeper question is whether the stimulated universe is also involved in a stimulus, a kind of supercomputer. Above all, we may not be the ones we think. Such questions make people seem very ignorant in front of many unknown things.

3. Do We Have Free Will?
The so-called “decision dilemma” is what makes us think our actions are controlled by a “causal chain”, or whether we are the ones who make these decisions themselves.
Philosophers have long debated this issue. They have argued that decision-making is affected by many coincidences. So, for this reason, we have no free will. But on the other hand, it is thought that our casual actions are those that bring the circumstances of everyday life. Research in neuroscience has shown that the brain makes decisions even before we are aware of these actions.
4. Does God Exist?
We can not know if God exists or not. Atheists and believers are wrong when proclaiming one or the other idea. But agnostics are right. Man does not know much about how the world works and he himself. For this reason, many people turn to neutralism. The thought that the universe functions in an autonomous process. But that does not rule out the existence of a great designer who has put all this into motion.

5. Is there life after death?
We have no information to support the theory of post-mortem life either to test it or to lay it down. Materialists assume that there is no life after death, an assumption that can not be proved. Considering the world through the classical Newtonian / Einstein objective, or through quantum mechanics, we see that there is no reason to believe that we have only one chance in life.
The faith of metaphysics in the universe cycles makes people think that a person is always alive in a part of the universe.
6. Can we experience something objectively?
There is a difference between objectively understanding the world and experiencing things from an objective point of view. This is a philosophical problem that makes man ever finds himself in the face of the question of whether man consists of a set of processes that make him impossible to differentiate what is objective or not.
By subconscious, we always experience the world as unique. But, we do not know how it really is, without the subjective perception that characterizes people.

7. What is the best moral system?
In essence, we can never understand the difference between right and wrong. In certain parts of history, people have claimed to have discovered the best way to measure human actions and establish a code of law.
But that has never been simple. Life is complicated and nobody can decide what is right and wrong. Because the interests make people explain their behavior by the moment and seeing the extra good, compared to the general one, it can not be said that it is accurately known what is good and what is bad in some cases.
8. What are the numbers?
We all use numbers, but we do not know exactly what they are, despite being too precious to explain the universe and fix our daily lives. Mathematical structures are essential to solving most of the human problems.
