I think our brains are wired to make questions all the time. I don't see anything wrong with it, in fact asking questions about things has made me a whole lot happier. I'm sure there is a part of us that is immortal and I wouldn't have reached that conclusion if I didn't ask myself things.
I see the idea of not asking questions kind of too extreme of a measure, I think it would be safer to simply take a more stoic point of view and accept the world as it is. I think asking questions is something logical and natural.

I perhaps could've titled this better, but it's not about avoiding questioning entirely, but rather being more discerning about when to use the ability to question, because most questions aren't truly answerable and/or provide little benefit when answered. We spend a lot of our time spinning our wheels, thinking we're helping ourselves, when we're just adding more of a burden to carry around.
