Very simple questions often unlock great mysteries of the universe and the world. Newton’s why things fall down? or Wittgenstein’s what is language? or Ramana Maharshi’s who am I? or the great question of why there is something instead of nothing.
Humble questions provoke greatly because we can relate to them and are very much grounded in the human experience. However, few are interested in them. People dare to become millionaires and billionaires but none bother except a few to ask the question what is money? In fact, in universities, few lectures are devoted to the simplest things like definitions and basic elements of the subject. People are given degrees without asking them to inquire about things like what is thought? and what is space?
It’s better to come down than go up in search of exotic knowledge.
