If they were solved mysteries, they would not be unanswered :)

First problem, like time and mass, which are all interlinked in many ways, what exactly is space?

We can measure relative space (and there is, as far as we know, no absolute space), but does that mean we actually know what it is?

Is light speed really constant?
What happens exactly inside (and even near) a black hole?
Dark matter
Dark energy
Void's Energy
Universe's dimensions
Quantum Gravity (= is it possible to make wormholes and go from here to Andromeda Galaxy in a few minutes? Is it possible to make time travels?)
...
...

A reaction of matter....maybe your thoughts caused it?  Or maybe there is a sock universe outside of your washing machine?

That's what I think too.

I once lost a sock for a couple of months then it turned up in the washing machine where it had gone missing from. Spooky!  ???
