Humans Have to Explain

The unique thing about humans is that they have to *explain*.

They're always asking "Why?", but then they're also answering themselves, even though they *don't know the answer*.

Every person needs to ask "Why?", but he also needs to get away from other people's constant yammering to answer the question for himself. That's religion - the answering *for yourself* of the inevitable "Why?".

Gotta make your own rules, child,
Gotta break your own chains.

Make your own rules, kid. Rules are the evidence that someone has asked and answered the questions. But before you can do that, you have to have learned it yourself. Otherwise you're living everybody else's rules. You can't break your chains with everybody else's rules.
