I don't think mankind will ever find more than a good trial of an explanation before - how ever - it will die out once. Errors get replaced by others which seem less wrong. But nevertheless, otherwise it would be boring.

I tend to agree with that. But I think creating another intelligent being, capable of viewing the world from a different angle, or overcoming the limitations of human mind is not entirely impossible.

If humanity lasts long enough it will be wrong less enough to be right. What troubles me is than there is an obvious progress in science, but I'm afraid there is a regress in culture and average intelligence.
Anyway I like your optimism. I'm also certain of an inevitable extinction. :beerchug:

But who will create this? Anyway, I don't think it is the meaning of life to explain it - or to dominate it.

Well, it is a sign for the success of a species – the more successful it gets the lesss it is necessary for the single individual to fulfil evolutionary needs. At least there are enough others to rely on. Fortunately, because an occupation as a channel digger for example is not my purpose of life.

No, I'm certainly not looking to find the "meaning of life", to the contrary; I couldn't care less, to be honest.
It's the joy in creating such a system, the scientific challenges that such a question proposes, that mentally stimulate me!
And, regarding the second question, it's true as long as the rate of people distancing themselves from scientific work does not exceed the bare minimum required for sustaining our current level of suphistication and technology. If it does, depending on its extent, it might lead to anything from a scientific and technological stalemate, to a technological regress, a second dark age, if you will, in the most extreme scenarios.

I fear the content of people who are able to create an iPhone will decrease in contrast to the ones who use it, but hopefully I won't live to see that totally - I have survived too many worst-case-szenarios (BSE, Tschernobyl, Fukushima...) to be worried anymore.
