Why?

That was always my question. Or phrased differently, how do you know that?

By the end of my second year of college, I finally learned the “game”. It is the other four of Rudyard Kipling’s six honest serving men–what, who, when, and where.

They said they were encouraging thinking. They really wanted memorization.

My grades significantly improved.

Pursuing why is a career.

Why did they say that? Why did they choose that story in their narrative? Why do we care?

Or as the famous philosophy exam had it–question: why; answer: why not?

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it makes us more fully human.
