Why do some people try to discover the origin of the world? There is a lot of speculation and theories about how the world came to be, where it originates. The Buddha said: "Conjecture about [the origin, etc., of] the world is an unconjecturable that is not to be conjectured about, that would bring madness & vexation to anyone who conjectured about it. * It seems clear enough that all we can do about the origin of the world is to speculate, set up theories and such. We certainly cannot perform a proper controlled experiment. Yet many people insist on "showing when, where and how the world came to be." Why do they do that? Do you think the Buddha was wrong in condemning such speculation? Please discuss.
