Quote: For we understand neither why this world exists (Gödel)

For we understand neither why this world exists, nor why it is constituted just as it is, nor why we are in it, nor why we were born in just these and no other circumstances. Why then should we fancy that we know one thing for sure, that there is no other world, and that we never were nor ever will be in another?

— Kurt Gödel, letter to his mother, cited by Karl Sigmund, Exact Thinking in Demented Times, 2017, p. 381.
