“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.” Max Planck

What is this ultimate mystery?

If you posit "why anything exists instead of nothing", then I will have to ask whether "why" even makes sense in this context.

From what we now know of quantum physics, "nothingness" itself might be either less likely than having anything or perhaps nothing but a fiction born of our mental heuristics.
