Question: What separates a great question and an average one?
Answer: I think that the “great question” is the one that receives a great, perfect, all-inclusive answer.
A great question comes from a true need, a “life or death” yearning for an answer, solution. In that case the answer – regardless of who passes on, transmits the answer – comes from a deep, “primordial”, Natural source.
Such a question has to go beyond a simple intellectual inquiry, it has to touch the core of our existence, like “What is the meaning of my life?”, “Who am I?”, “What does it mean to become Human?”, “Do I have a purposeful role in the world, in reality?”, etc.
Such questions, when they reach that above mentioned “life or death” necessity, will always receive a full, life-changing answer.
