I don't know. If human intelligent awareness survives the death of the corporeal brain, then the big metaphysical questions are definitely survival concerns. So, maybe the biggest metaphysical question of all - "Does human intelligent awareness survive the death of the corporeal brain?" - is the one problem that isn't luxurious at all. Maybe its the only answer that anyone ever needs to get right.
