Asking unanswerable questions is a fun way to play a game with friends. An unanswerable question isn't necessarily a question that cannot be answered. But it is one that requires a heavy amount of intellectual thought behind the question itself. A type of deep question.

These questions can spark conversation, encourage thoughtful response, and generally inspire. What makes a really great unanswerable answer or question is that it encourages analysis of life. Our existence on this planet as humans is a unique circumstance. One without many answers. And only the best questions ask us to consider what we are doing here and why we exist.
