I like How. It’s kind of like What, as in, “What is the process by which…”
When and Where are kinda the same sorta.
Who and What are kinda the same too in a way.
Let’s see what the basic is: When someone goes ? – what does it mean by itself?
wait – the answer was in the question! It’s what.
“What does ? mean by itself?”
? means “What” by itself.
I guess the answer to all ? is a story of some kind.
Once, I searched for the answer to all questions. I found it about two years ago, or believe I did. Unsatisfying for just a moment until I realized just how powerful it is.
“I don’t know.”
What question can ANYBODY come up with that can’t be answered by “I don’t know”? I haven’t found one yet. Still looking on occasion, but have yet to find it
Ah, we think alike with this! Yeah, the thing that blew my mind a couple of years ago [I was trying find ‘the answer’ to all paradoxes.. .and while I figured out a different answer to them, it led me to this one]… was realizing that EVERY answer is just a substitution for “I don’t know”.
Indeed. Many paradoxes are flawed right in the question itself. If you take the question and break out ALL of the assumptions hiding within it until you end up with a rather lengthy but far more accurate *and precise* question, the paradox is more easily spotted and removed.
Ship of Theseus probably has more answers than this one, but the one that ‘clicked’ with me is when I realized:
a) it’s a metaphor for ourselves and
b) the answer is both
So the paradox in that case was caused by the assumption that the answer could not be both but could only be one or the other.
