“Why Not?” contains an abyss of meaning and possibility, far too much for a simple pair of monosyllabic words. “Why Not?” isn’t merely a rhetorical question; no matter what you say, one can always ask why, the only way you can end this is by saying “Why Not?”. “Why Not?” encapsulates the essence of human innovation. “Why Not?” breaks the chains and loops of linear thinking that we tend to settle into. “Why Not?” is creativity, “Why Not?” is the realization of the fact that there exists a vast sea of knowledge that you haven’t dived into yet.
