As you know from Quantum theory, "it" exists only in relation to something else. It is because something else is well.....something else.

I may be completely off topic but I think its more constructive to ask why it isnt. Its easy to ask why something is one way. Its harder to provide an alternative!

This is giving me a headache.

Can we talk about something simpler? like why it is necessary all of the time to give seemingly intelligent answers (laced with discrete humour) to seemingly intelligent questions (with an attempt at humour)?

My headache is gone now.

Why is it?

Why not?

My headache is back!!!
