Our Real Problem - Ask Question Get Answer

Sounds trivial, doesn't it? Just ask a question and get an answer, right?
  • I suppose you should reword it to intelligent question.
  • Or reword it to accurate question.
  • Or just sensible question.
  • What about a dumb question?
The basic thing about questions is they do not come out of a vacuum. We really have to know something before we can even ask a question.

Remember way back in school when you first started on a new course? You didn't even know what questions to ask about. Everything was new. You did not even have the words  you needed.

A person of limited experience really is a cripple when it comes to asking questions as they do not even have the useful words they need. How do you ask a question if the words are not even in your vocabulary? You basically do not know what you do not know.

Let's face it - there are really things we do not want to know. Experiences we do not want to have. Life has a lot of really good things and bad things. Just look at a newspaper.

Unless we are living on a desert island where nothing else is possible, we should really try to broaden ourselves as much as we can. Learning about our world allows us to ask intelligent questions. It gives us more options on what to do with our lives. It makes it so others are more likely to enjoy our company.

There is an excellent article the Readers Digest printed about 10 Rooms in the House of Life. Check it out. I belive it is a gret source for our lives and incidentally will let us question things around us much more effectively.
