Innate, in the nature of how we fulfill our curiosities and navigate our movement in this. A response towards a problem or need, something not known, rather ask to be known. “How are you?”, “Where are you going?”, “Where have you come from?” and Sangkan-paran.

The ability to ask questions is often assessed in relation to comprehension of syntactic structure,4 first questions found during their early infancy. A word with an intonation itself can pose a question. Outside a syntax, other expressions in making by and using the human body can communicate a question. A squint, shoulder raised and arms folded. A stare in gaze, of the uncertain. The body makes intonation of its own. The action without assurance for me, questions the certainty of an act itself. A stop during a run, questions the direction in moving forward towards. A step back, or running back to the from or from the from. 

I question everything in exhaust. Maybe its better to not know. The questioning gesture or mark, is spoken. Acknowledge and in affirmation of not knowing. To be left unanswered, is to extend the possibilities of search to come.
