Beyond the quote #4

" The scientist is not someone who gives the right answers but one who asks the right questions"

Science in its nature isn't about how many facts you can remember but the questions that drive its development forward. To be a true scientist you must be able to follow the trail of logic without an incessant to know all the answers to everything immediately . The correct results won't be achieved without an excellent initial line of questioning. Which leads to the formation of a Hypothesis that is tested through experimentation.

A natural spark of curiosity leads to fundamental questions that often lead to more questions.Newton had to ask how the apple fell to the Earth to lead us to the discovery of gravity  and as Einstein said " I have no special talents, I am passionately curious". Often such questions break the mould set by the already accepted theories which then requires high levels of bravery and self belief in any rule breakers.

However problems can arise when an answer can't be found. This is displayed in the field of Neuroscience where we are still unsure of some of the questions that should be asked ; let alone the answers to some of the problems to do with the most complex regions of the brain.

Scientific theory however can be made up or be limited by the technology of an era leading  it to be  adapted  and changed so continuously throughout history. This is initiated by rethinking old questions or removing them completely. Highlighting the importance of scientists getting the questions correct prevented regression and promoting continuous forward thinking
