I feel blahhh when anything reaches the point of being predictable.
But when I come to think of it, it's a nature of human (you know I'm generalizing) to be afraid of uncertainties. I believe Science was born out of that notion - to minimize variability, and raise the predictability level. Systems, structures, hierarchies, etc. came along to serve that purpose as well. The more mysterious or uncertain things are, the more we want to discover and straighten them out. We are subconsciously attracted to the mysteriousness, while at the same time consciously desire to make the mysterious no more mysterious. Those moments of our own discoveries give us intellectual orgasm. But after thousands of years of civilization, there are not that many mysteries out there to give us that kind of ecstasy. Instead, we get stuck in our own products of those intellectual orgasms :P Now we are all in the SOCIETY haha...

Most of us chase after things that make ourselves so predictable, in the illusion that weíll find happiness. I donít know if I should be happy or depressed knowing it.
P.S. About the mysteries, we are now reaching out and trying to "de-mysterize" the outer space. Isnít it cool heh?
