His name was Gabriel Marcel,he found a better answer to the question why no one will ever be able to find a better answer to that question.

He distinguished all questions that philosophers ask into two categories:what he called ‘problems’ and what he called ‘mysteries’.By ‘mysteries’ he meant not only questions that were not clear or not yet answered but questions that in principle could never be totally clear or adequately answered, as any ‘problem’ could for this reason: because in a ‘mystery’ the questioner ‘participates in’ the question.He is involved not detached.In other words the real question is the questioner himself, and the questioner thus cannot objectify the question but must live the question even in the act of answering.That is the terrible prerogative of the human kind.
