Is it possible to write a complete posting on my blog using only questions?
Do questions help keep the reader’s interest?
Will you, the reader, be able to understand this message, if the message contains only questions?
What is Socratic Questioning?
Do questions cause you to think of more questions?
Do answers cause you to think of more answers?
Do you find this posting more confusing and/or thought-provoking, than ones that contain most sentences that are not questions?
Is your mind “swirling” and your nerves “on edge” because of the questioning format of this posting?
Do you like “thought-provoking” questions and/or “fun” questions?
Are these “thought-provoking” or “fun” questions?
*What is the most fundamental concept of human thought?
*Do we live in our minds?
*Should we try to make reality fit our thinking or should we try to make our thinking fit reality?
*How far east can you go before you’re heading west?
*Are eyebrows considered facial hair?
*Why does caregiver and caretaker mean the same thing?
*Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?

OK, why questions? Do you think that questions, more than any other single thing, cause humans to create new thoughts? Are the new thoughts that are caused by questions, tend to be different points of view, connections of concepts, intellectually interesting inferences, etc.?
This posting was the result of a single question in my mind. “Could I write a post for my blog using only questions?” The answer – I almost did! :-)
I end with a poem, containing only questions, entitled:
FOuR HOW, WHERE, WHY, WHO, WHAT and WHEN?
How many breaths will it take to run a mile?
How many battles do we need for us to win?
How many delays do we need before we begin?
Where are we going in order to be here?
Where are the signs on the road to success?
Where are the repressed when we confess?
Why do we smile when one makes a gaffe?
Why do we love what others hate?
Why do we depend so much on faith?
Who is alone and lives in a city?
Who is unfaithful but receives our trust?
Who is unfair but still is just?
What is hot and also cold?
What is east as well as west?
What is known and not assessed?
When does time explain the present?
When does friendship become love?
When does reality make an example of?
