The first ultimate question is "How can we improve the human mind?"

Nabukadnezar
Wylted

I define "ultimate question" as being the most urgent question humankind could answer in contemporary times. I advocate that the current ultimate question is "How can we improve the human mind?", simply because solving this puzzle would result in us becoming capable of answering the next ultimate questions faster.
