There are only two real mysteries.

There are only two real mysteries in the universe.

Mystery Number One: Why is there something and not nothing?
Mystery Number Two: How come we are concious, what is concousness, how come we think?

All the other mysteries are sub-mysteries, and depend on these first two.

Slightly connected,  a poem by the Persian poet Hafez (1326 -1389):

I wish I could show you, 
when you are lonely or in the darkness, 
the astonishing light of your own being.
