More recent big questions in the Realm of Pure ideas include What is the relationship of Mathematics to Physical Reality, What is the destiny of the Universe and the exact workings of the process of Evolution of life.
This naturally leads to a Nihilistic outlook where life is considered as meaningless and even morality is seen as arbitrary.
