Are we asking the same person the questions or some one different?
I don't believe that is the case at all. I believe that we continue to ask questions because it is in our nature in order to gain knowledge. Too few people are at liberty to experiment, "swim the motes" in order to get to the castle of knowledge. They would rather ask around which is fine, but the gains are far less. Also, answer are in abundance as long as we strive to ask the correct questions.
