Many questions about life will, most likely, always remain unanswered. That does not make them less interesting...or intriguing. For example, will human ever discover the end of the universe...if there even is one.
After being disappointed about not winning the lottery, I got to thinking about the odds of winning (I ignored all the warnings/advice). Of course, I had not expected to win, but did plan how to spend the winnings. I sought some form of consolation for not winning, which led me to being content with my lot in life. Human life itself is a form of lottery. Someone that understands statistics and sperm count has surely determined the odds. Which led me to the following unanswerable question: Although a single sperm fertilizes an egg, would life of the resulting human be the same or different in any of the other sperm thingies fertilized the egg?
