Hey again.. Philosophy has definitely been on my mind recently and I've been wanting to do a philosophy quest for a while! Especially seeing as that was one of the main things I posted about before the IFC and which is still one of my main interests in life. I think philosophy is one of the most important things.. Life would be so odd if that ingredient were missing.. Heck it still is pretty odd either way! But anyways.. Moving on.

So.. This quest is going to be about philosophy.
More specifically, philosophical questioning.
Whoever brings us the best philosophical question as voted on by the judges wins this round!

And now a moment for our sponsors!

First up is @ats-david who has helped greatly! If you appreciate this contest or just his efforts in general you may want to look into voting for him as a witness at @ats-witness, he does a lot of other cool things for the community as well!

Next is @timcliff who has similarly helped out the contest significantly and who is also a witness who does a lot for the community, so likewise if you appreciate the efforts you may want to vote for him as witness also!

I'd also like to thank @theguruasia who has pledged at least 20 steem to the second and third place prizes and he said he may even donate more.

And @nxtblg who has been regularly resteeming and upvoting our challenges which has been a big help!

Plus one other person who has been helping a lot who deserves some credit is @soundlegion who has also been upvoting the contests regularly.

And while not technically sponsors, we are working with @davemccoy and those at #newbiegames and #newbieresteemday and they do a great service to the community so definitely check them out if you appreciate that, or if you're new.

Also not a sponsor, though @iexplore has taken a huge workload directly off of my shoulders and is now doing the "catch up" rounds, those should be posted on the @ifc page.. And I suggest giving him a follow and some support as well if you appreciate the work as he is doing an amazingly helpful and important job! Oh and he usually posts the catch up rounds on Sunday the day after I post mine on Saturday.

For this challenge.. If there's a tie.. We will do another round to see who wins.

The winner will be decided by whoever gets the most votes.
The only people who can vote in a qualifying sense are myself and the judges I've selected and we will vote by leaving a comment on the submission that we like the most and say something like.. "I vote for this one" and a reason why we voted would be good too, but is not mandatory.

You have until this challenges post payout ends to submit your post. Though we do accept late entries if you get it in before all the judges vote.

The challenge will finish after 7 days when the post ends and provides its payout cycle and unless there is a tie, the winner will gain the steem, the XP and have a point to go towards their long term win. (minus the 25% for curation)

Oh this is going to be special, so many different philosophical styles and ideas are out there, I can see this resulting in some serious thinking. Now I need to start thinking philosophically, will it be about numbers, about truth, about life, about god and gods, or something really esoteric such as why we let dogs lick our faces knowing where dogs like to lick themselves. I think I am going to have a heck of alot of fun with this one.

I was looking for greater insight to the quest and I just got help with this comment.

I am glad it helped, I love seeing how many people play in the IFC. Each round is so unique, sometimes it is just hard to think, and with more people playing and commenting those comments can sometimes help me out, I am glad mine helped you out a little bit.

I think so too! :) I'm pretty excited to see what kinds of interesting things I might learn this time! And lol! Yeah.. Where to start? Philosophy is such a deep subject sort of like life itself! It would be great if you could somehow wrap it all up into one idea, but I think that's something people have been trying to do for a long time! And as far as I know, a lot of people are still trying to do that. Will probably be an eternal quests in the spirit of humanity to forever try to know and learn about and understand itself and the environment we have found ourselves in! Cheers and hope you have fun. :)

PS.. As a decently OCD person I laughed at this part.

or something really esoteric such as why we let dogs lick our faces knowing where dogs like to lick themselves.

Also.. It's not letting me upvote your comment for some reason, it appears to be glitched.. This happens every once and a while and I'll upvote your comment later when it's working properly again.

Don't worry about the vote thing, steemit is having hiccups again, some post just sit and spin, and lots of 500 server errors, so is understandable.

Searching for that one true answer, a life long event, and if anyone ever finds it I am sure there will be people say, nah...wrong answer. That's what's nice about the philosophical drive, no real right or wrong answers, just questions and and sometimes answers.

Word! It works now. But anyways I agree with your sentiments on philosophy! If anyone ever did figure it out, I'm sure a lot of people would reject it lol, and cling to their flat earths and reptilians run the world kinda stuff. Oh wait those are conspiracy theories.. Though I think philosophy is much like religion, it's about belief, much like conspiracies. Also.. Yeah! Questions and.. Sometimes answers, and usually those answers lead to more questions! Lol! ._.

I've got to turn the brain power up for this one! Great quest! I'll have to think this one through!
