Are Metaphysical Mysteries Pointless?

What if 90% of all metaphysical speculation is pointless? What if none of that 90% is real, and is just eating up time and resources? What if all the stories of gods and alien visitors are just that -- stories? What if there are no Higher Selves guiding us along a clear-cut path? What if there are no interdimensional travelers in complex spaceships? What if everything that isn't clear, or capable of becoming clear, is meaningless?

What if instead, this stuff is real, but all of our speculation still serves no purpose? What if in order for something to matter, to be of use, it must be fully quantified? Sure, speculation leads to testing which leads to fact, but what if instilling faith is really a way to enforce ignorance?
