Questions? Again? Still?

Why questions? Are questions special? Why? Are questions the portal to the subconscious mind? Why do we ponder and reflect on questions? Are questions more of a learning opportunity than answers?

It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question”–Decouvertes

Is it still true that we can often learn more from questions than from answers? Do questions urge us to do more research and evaluation? Do they sometimes pique our interest and inspire us to learn more?

Are answers facts, that may or may not be true? Do we tend to treat them like a check list item? Done? Thanks for the information. Check it off the list. What is next?

“We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.”–Lloyd Alexander

Why is this blog in a question format? Is it because, the author does not have the answers? What else? Is it to invite the reader to ponder and reflect on the questions? Is it to provide a prompt for readers to examine their own perspectives, in regard to the subject? Is it to provide a starting point for further exploration and investigation? Do these apply to the author and the reader? Is it probable the answer is yes to all of the above?

Are you intrigued by questions? Do you like the thought-provoking perspectives of questions? Do you use questions to challenge others? Do you ask questions of yourself, that require reflection?
