Yes i am well aware that no matter my words, no matter the paranoia, people will undoubtedly construe my actions and words as propaganda or misinformation. In all earnest there is noting i can truly do to dissuade them, all i hope, is i spark some sympathy for the cause, so to inspire people to hold judgment until they have gleaned more of the "factual truth," than that of those whom create them on a daily basis.

Yes, the answer is indeed "man."
It was originally posed by the Sphynx to Oedipus, in Antigone's play oedipus rex.
See, my reply to you was an extremely subtle reference to that. Probably too subtle.
A-ha! But Albert Pike informs us that there is a better answer to that riddle, and by answering "Man," (i.e. by making the physical man the centre of his considerations) Oedipus doomed himself to the events that ultimately brought about his downfall.
The answer Pike hinted at is very much like answering a Zen riddle, though... it's not the kind of answer that mechanical logic can get you to, but it still makes sense (at least if I remember it correctly). Any guesses?
