The essence of existence in space and time is continual change from birth to death. Anything that never changes is not “alive”. As a human animal, you have the ability to question and ponder; therefore you question the strange mystery of your existence. However, humans can only think in terms of space and time, so the questions you ask arise from that place of space and time. You question with your mind/brain, and you look for answers that your mind/brain can understand. If you ask a question while asleep and dreaming, any answer you get will be true only in your dream. Real answers are beyond space and time.
