A solid part of being a scientist is to be curious and skeptical. To ask questions, not to stop to the fact but to investigate up to the sources.
Asking something that other people don’t ask, or ask questions that people think of having aswers of, is a really hard task. Someone say even, that finding the right question is what do the brilliant scientist. What is more important then finding answers is to Question the right issue. Never stop to be curious; be childlike, be innocent, be naive and you’ll discover much more than anybody else.
Discovering, thinking, questioning help us to keep an active mind and to be always open to the new. From school to adulthood we should keep in mind that the future – like the rover on Mars – is Curiosity.
With these premises I start a new series of posts in which I put the most obvious, the less considerated and the most abandoned, but yet so important, questions that I encounter in my lessons or my life, that has no easy answer. There are a lot of questions we still have to answer and many that we have answered but we aren’t aware of it.
If you ask that Muting question, even to the best professor in the world, no one can answer it without being flat-footed for a while.
Why are we alive??? Ehmm.. what if I tell you a story instead?
