quote:What is a mysterious answer? A mysterious answer is an answer lacking in explanatory or predictive power. A mysterious answer is one that does not increase our understanding of the question it attempts to answer, and instead often utilizes vague, poorly defined (if defined at all) terms as a sort of password to stop further investigation and shut down curiosity. At its heart, a mysterious answer is one that appeals to an emotional sense of satisfaction rather than an actual increase in intellectual understanding.
