How to live with Mystery.

RE: How to live with Mystery.
That re-minded me (which doesn't necessarily mean a thing) of the Heinlein quote:
according to Wikiquote, Robert A. Heinlein Wrote:I think that science fiction, even the corniest of it, even the most outlandish of it, no matter how badly it's written, has a distinct therapeutic value because all of it has as its primary postulate that the world does change. I cannot overemphasize the importance of that idea.

(Science Fiction writing is an art, no?)

Perhaps the two most vital things to come to peace with: sometimes there are no answers, and life is change...?

Is it voluntary? (because if it isn't, what inherently is it?)
And can it be voluntary, if there's indoctrination, intimidation, coercion, threats & initiation of violence?
[not to be confused with asking: can it be said to be "voluntary" even when such is present.?]

Which reminds me of that wonderful saying which presents "truth" in the form of a contradiction:

The only constant is change.
