Annie Dillard, in her beautiful prose, scratches the surface of our discomfort:  we don’t know as much as we’d like.

“What do we ever know but that power which, from time to time, seizes our lives, and reveals us startlingly to ourselves as creatures set down here bewildered?  Why does death so catch us by surprise, and why love?  We still and always want waking.”
