Great Unanswerable Questions

The first thing I want to point out is that if questions were really unanswerable they wouldn't be great, they would be pointless. The point of a question is to find some sort of answer. This is why that phrase bothers me enough to write a notebook about it. People seem to use this mostly either to keep from asking themselves questions (fairly bad), or to justify talking on and on about questions without ever coming to a decent resolution (even worse). That's all I really wanted to say, so we'll just leave it at that.
