Im talking pure speculation, Do you think someday we will know why we exist, What we are and what makes us human?

Im not really looking for what important person said what. I just want your actual opinion and reasoning.

I think that we are making more and more progress towards understanding our brains and body and biology in general, And a little about the why as we learn about evolution. Ultimately though, I think a scientific break through will allow us to understand our 'souls'. Of course, As this is speculation about the future, I can only say that I think that we will someday know the answer to the premise through projections of what current knowledge means into the future. For example, Neural net AIs basically work like our brains do which makes our brains nothing 'special' or out of this world in itself if we can reproduce it. All that really is a mystery is the 'soul' inside. I think that, Staying optimistic about the rate of discovery of scientific knowledge in the future, The more we discover about the world, The more we will discover about ourselves, And eventually we will know why and how we exist.
