I agree that it is these tiny details that make the game great. But again, they only mean something if they are blended into the whole picture.
Maybe I expressed myself wrong, but I tend to try and understand the system in the whole, rather than a single element. If you just look at these connections, how different, seemingly unrelated, elements build up into something that is more than just a game, then you understand that everything in itself doesn't mean a thing - being part of the whole is what matters.
And while mysteries should be solved and answers should be sought, let me ask you a question: is trying to find the answers always the best way? Finding an answer to a question brings up another questions, you find answers to those and you have even more left to answer. The more you know, the less you know. In the end, you can get so much worked up about finding the answers to these little mysteries, that you will stop getting pleasure from the game that was intended for that purpose. And what is the point in playing it then, if you can derive no pleasure from it?
And believe me, you will get to busy sorting these 'little mysteries' out to get any pleasure from the game. Only the pleasure from finding the answers to your questions, which, believe me, is not as much.
Oh, and why incorporate definitely false theories to explain something that doesn't possibly even need an explanation?
