When I got back home yesterday, my son was waiting for me with his next set of fundamental questions. Equipped with an iPad full of educational apps, he wants some questions to be answered only by me. Here are they. The answers were elaborated to feed his curious mind.
My 10 yo : Where is heaven?
Me : You are right now in heaven.
My 10 yo : What happens after death?
Me : Our body loses its physical form and becomes digital.
My 10 yo : Why life is important?
Me : Because the sheer existence is a miracle.
My 10 yo : How do we know that we are evolved from monkeys?
Me : When we are angry, hungry, aroused, panicked or frightened – the monkey comes out of us. So take deep breaths, 10 times! Monkey inside us will go to sleep.
My 10 yo : How this blue planet became what it is now?
Me : It took millions of years. It was not in a hurry.
My 10 yo : What kind of people go to hell?
Me : People who do bad things to others, create hell wherever they are! They don’t have to go anywhere.
My 10 yo : Why dinosaurs became extinct?
Me : Climate change.
