Life is like a back bend pose. A comfortable way you bend always you will enjoy it being there. You push too much then suffocate there too!
Each bite of knowledge taking us one step ahead in the path of life. It's not going to stop us from the end; but it can reduce the pain in life what it going through. Every philosophy and science created on the base of it only. And I am pretty sure that it will remain like that till the life goes in this universe.
