My question is if we as rational creatures have come to terms that the universe is huge, there are planets bigger than earth, and with the advance of string theory, have we as humans finally have a grasp on what are we doing here? Why yes or not yet? Thanks

    This question is overly vague. Please refine your question to a specific area of human understanding. – user4634 Nov 21 '13 at 19:00

I strongly recommend to read this short article by Asimov about the nature of scientific understanding. Hopefully that would resolve the questions about the final understanding of nature.
