Asking the right questions

Problem solving at its best, comes from asking the right questions.When ever I try to do any experiments in the lab and I am stuck with some negative results,no amount of troubleshooting helps me...The only approach which yields results is to start from scratch,asking why everything behaves the way it does.

As UG Krishnamurti says in his books,the questions have answers buried in them.So all the answers we need can be got from framing the question in the right way.

An engineering system has an input and output. Questioning life is quite different from computational logic. But when analyzing regularities of science, its all about what you say. Life is so beautiful that living itself feels great for me eventhough at times I do question it, when a need arises.

Wittgenstein says:

We feel that even when all possible scientific questions have been answered, the problems of life remain completely untouched. Of course there are then no questions left, and this itself is the answer. - Tractatus 6.52

and then
The solution of the problem of life is seen in the vanishing of the problem. - Tractatus 6.521
