Video: Sex, Death and The Meaning of Life (Arabic Subtitled)

On a Saturday morning, get a cup of coffee, free your schedule, get comfortable and watch this three episode documentary about the basic questions we ask about life. Questioning is healthy, and better yet if it becomes a healthy habit. What a feeling it is when we explore a new country, when presented with evidence for a new theory, when testing a new product, or when discussing politics; how amplified it can be by questioning. We go through this everyday, but do we really afford the necessary time to analyze and contemplate our experiences? You read, watch, research and discuss all kinds of ideas and you go through a whole process of doubt, looking for better understanding on topics and seeking assurances for them against older beliefs. Certain conclusions may not immediately be reached, and answers hard to come by, but once that unasked question is asked, doors open in this fascinating process from not knowing to knowing, or knowing but now even better. Some call it the Socratic method, some critical thinking or the scientific method. All I know is that it changes us and gives us an incentive to explore and adapt to change, it moves us away from being static in thought and action. The ability to think using our neurons in our brain is something we have to cherish, and it all starts with questions.
