Go Down the Rabbit Hole of Questions

If we want the future to be different from the past, we can’t simply be looking for answers. 

We need to pursue profound questions that haven’t been asked or questions that cannot be answered – for they contain a paradox or contradiction.

Ask yourself: “What question, if you had an answer to, would set you free?”

I think many questions do not have and will not have a definite answer. Yet I can’t help but wonder if many (or even most) have lackluster answers or none because we stopped asking the questions.

So that’s how the Quest for Questions was born.

The quest contains within itself 4-sub quests:

  • Quest for a Life Well-Lived
  • Quest for Excellence & Mastery
  • Quest for Beauty, Romance & Adventure
  • Quest for Truth & Wisdom


Which ultimately lead to Unity & Belonging.

And the final question:

*What is Transcendent – what unites humans across time & space?*

Sapere Aude, my friends!
Dare to know. Dare to be wise.

Naulius in Verba → Don’t take anybody’s word for it. Figure it out yourself.

Education discovers an increasing richness in the past because it sees what is unfinished there. Training regards the past as finished and the future as to be finished. Education leads towards self-discovery. Training leads toward a final self-definition. Training repeats a completed past in the future. Education continues an unfinished past into the future.”
– James P. Carse

“You have to keep a dozen of your favorite problems constantly present in your mind, although by and large they will lay in a dormant state. Every time you hear a new trick or a new result, test it against each of your twelve problems to see whether it helps. Every once in a while, there will be a hit, and people will say, ‘How did he do it? He must be a genius!”

– Richard Feynman
