There are some questions that we may never be able to answer.

Questions that, despite our insatiable appetite for knowledge and our dogged determination to investigate, may simply elude us for as long as we are we. Questions such as, “How exactly did the universe begin?” “Are there others out there like us?” “What is the nature of consciousness?” and “Why do these memes exist?”

These are conundrums inside puzzles inside riddles inside dreams. And though we may never fully understand them, that shouldn’t stop us from trying. Examine these memes for yourself, and see if you can determine why they are here.

7. Toying with emotions

You are a sad, strange little man.

6. Crutch in clutch

Gotta have those kicks no matter what.

5. Catch up with the times

4. Did what work?

3. Unsolved mysteries

2. Heavy sleeper

1. Aquatic pride

Who made these? Why are they here? What purpose could they possibly serve? We certainly don’t know yet. But maybe…one day…it will all become clear.
