    No right or wrong answer.
    No answer is black or white.

    Do you live life by the questions (without need for direction/vision/trajectory/etc)?

    Do you live life by the answers (without need to know why/how/when/etc)?

    Both. I ask questions and get answers, live by what I know at the moment but also try to learn more for it is never enough. One must always be ready to adapt and move on to better things, there is no shame in that.

    It’s an odd question. But if I’m hearing what your saying, and picking up what you’re laying down…..
    Then I suppose my life is based upon finding answers/solutions to the problems that arise. However, certain problems arise because of the path that I am attempting to travel down. If you’re catching my drift. ;)

    I like that, continuity. Do you mean you're always "changing" so there's no such thing as the importance of a direction in life nor a need to ask about life in order to live it? If I got that right.

    Carbon tells you the answers to the questions you have of life and/or tells you what you want may be looking for in life but haven't achieved?

    That would mean you wouldn't need direction in life and don't need to know the source of where your life is going?

    Without need for direction and a need for a defined intention or source?

    I follow the direction and defined intentions that I know to be good at the moment but am open to changing it based on the questions I ask during the act of doing this is perhaps a better way of phrasing it. I need direction and need to know the source of where it's going, but one can not sit and question without acting all the time, so you go forward despite not knowing everything.

    That makes sense. There are many people who ask questions but too many questions may get them stuck in a rut. Maybe there's a different "types" of questions-those that propel you to go forward and those that get you stuck waiting for the answer.

    Finding the answers is a good motivator. What happens when you're at a dead end or do you believe there are dead ends in life?

    Do you achieve this based on what you know or what you don't know?

    Both, as I have to question how to live as a crazy person (western psychiatry) in sane world(western belief system) and find the answers to that.

    You cant base much on what you don't know.
    However to give you an answer, I would say on what I know and discover.

    Well, no! I am somewhat lucky in that I am a high-functioning crazy person, but I don't wish that on anybody else. I like your sentiment though and it warms my heart, but no.

    Regards
    Mikkel

    Life should be about seeking Truth. So ask questions and expect answers but don't just accept every answer as true.
