When I was about 5 years old, I used to hear someone talking to me at night after everyone had gone to bed. It never scared me but I told mom about it and she said it was God. But she didn't seem to believe me. The voice was soft and mellow but the gender was ambiguous. It would ask me questions about my day and how things are going.

As I got older, never heard from it again and I forgot about it until about five years ago. Looking back on that now, the voice thing is strange.

Who built Gobekli Tepe 12,000 years ago, what did they believe, what were their lives like, and why did they bury it 4,000 years later?

And while we're at it, why is there something rather than nothing?

Mountain Monsters, which I suspect jumped the shark 10 minutes into its first episode, has apparently descended into the realm of the ludicrous and the never-before-seen just plain awful. Never watched it before -- I prefer to enjoy my hillbillies and cryptids separately. I watched a couple of episodes recently since I now have Playstation Vue, and they seem to be operating at a level of stupidity and childishness that makes episodes of Scooby Doo look like serious scientific inquiry. There are some horrible paranormal shows out there, Mountain Monsters is a genuine stinker -- neither interesting, nor chill inducing, nor amusing. At least Matt Moneymaker is fun to laugh at.

I don't know if Gobekli Tepe would make my list of greatest mysteries, but it's certainly a puzzle - even the puzzle of why they carefully buried the pillars in rubble to preserve them. I have been reading a lot about it, starting with Graham Hancock's latest book. (My brush with celebrity: I once had a brief chat with Hancock while we were both using urinals at a restroom in Sedona!) As mavericky as Hancock may be, I do think his comet impact theories have merit.

Me: I did have a classic UFO encounter in 1971, a small daylight disk that paced my car at a range of no more than 60 yards. An arch-skeptic who was riding with me saw it as well. There was a "psychic" aspect that is not uncommon but that did convince me this was not some piece of military hardware. I've had other anomalous experiences that were more complex and meaningful, but this stands out just because I've had an intense interest in UFOs since I was 8 years old.

But my wife and I were agreeing yesterday that the greatest mysteries are indeed "life" and "death" - what actually are they in their essence, what actually is the difference (if any) between them, and how flawed will our current understanding prove to be if and when we know the truth?

I didn't know Hancock had a book out that discussed Gobekli Tepe, will have to check it out. I've enjoyed reading some of his past efforts (especially the Ark of the Covenant one).

Mystery vs puzzle? If we don't ever find the information to unravel the puzzle (a real possibility given its antiquity -- but there are sites in Turkey that may be from the same culture so maybe it's not completely hopeless), it probably qualifies as a mystery, I'd say.
