What if the answer keys to our educational exams were questions? With a few blank spaces for even better questions?
What if, instead of “answers”, google searches turned up hits of even more questions?
What if we had Q&Q periods instead of Q&A?
What if Siri actually started asking us questions instead of the opposite?
What if? - These questions tend to have an expansive effect. They allow us to think without limits.
Curiosity is the foreplay of discovery.
Discoveries are not the fruit of outstanding talent, but rather of common sense enhanced and strengthened by technical education and a habit of thinking about scientific problems.
You can tell whether a man is clever by his answers. However, you can tall whether a man is wise by his questions.
On average, we ask 40,000 questions between the ages 2 and 5 and steadily decline in our question-asking thereafter.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvellous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
What if we returned to asking more questions?
