The universe contains an unfathomable amount of information that continues expanding every day; yet, somehow, humans keep making sense of it all through our limited comprehension. As complexity increases exponentially from each step forward we take, new mysteries continue popping up with greater frequency than before. Some theories become so complex that no-one can say whether it's possible to understand what goes on, say, beyond the event horizon -- but we try anyway. It helps make life bearable, knowing the world around us exists even when its rules are completely unknowable – if only because these strange truths, however ungraspable, give shape and substance to all events that happen within their influence. With that knowledge, even the attempt to grasp them is ennobling.

If there were some sort of comprehensible code that dictated what would happen next, then perhaps none of the madness on this planet would seem quite so incomprehensible. But, on the other hand, we probably wouldn't have lists like these anymore.
