What is a question?
- a sentence in an interrogative form, addressed to someone in order to get information in reply.
- a problem for discussion or under discussion; a matter for investigation.
- a matter of some uncertainty or difficulty; problem
Middle English, from Old French, legal inquiry, from Latin quaestiō, quaestiōn-, from *quaestus, obsolete past participle of quaerere, to ask, seek. (from the dictionary)
The word question implies a quest. What is a quest that needs a reply, an answer, a solution? Already, can’t we see, in a round about way, we are trying to fix uncertainty and difficulty in the way we live?
Seriously, do I need to talk about this quest, and all its complications? The quest is what I am doing! Not make it yours or mine, his or hers, problem, something to expose, but seriously look at ones own approach to life, ones own way of thinking. Not analytically. Actually, directly, carefully, see what I, the thinker, am doing. Can you do that? Or is this quest with its skill and technology of talking, writing, and discussing, this self expression, the limitation we cultivate?
