Why is my rock here?
First point is - how has it got mass? What exactly is responsible for it being there when all the facts suggest it shouldn't be.

Secondly, why is it there? This is as releveant as the reasons for it's cause WITHOUT obstructing parsimony.

(Example; Why did Jack the Ripper rip? He didn't, his knife did, and it's infact Occam's razor - not Jack's, to suggest that Jack did it.)
