I don't mean to say that all questions are bad, just that many are drowning in questions that don't actually provide any net benefit, while they think they're doing themselves a favor.
The right questions are the most valuable things in the world, but carrying around the wrong questions is a weight that wears us down, and I'd posit 95% of the questions we lug around in our minds every day aren't actually a net useful thing. They're just a bad habit, a compulsion.
So I'm not saying "don't question" but rather "use your ability to question very very carefully". Everything looks like a nail when you're using a hammer. Everything looks like some riddle that must be solved when using the lens of questioning. This can cause problems. But questioning is definitely useful in the right context.
