  1. I would like you (not you, but all of you) to guess. It is not so difficult to “get into” me – I have a lot of disparate interests, and the amount of simple knowledge obtained at the physics department (and in general in everyday life) allows me to answer most of the everyday questions of the category ” How?”, ” Why?” and “How does it work /work?”. But first of all, I should be suddenly interested. And what is this surprise that you suggested yourself? Not a surprise at all.

  2. “What would you like me to ask you?” “What you'd like to ask yourself.”

    Purely logically, this is probably the most complete answer, because “the meaning of a question should be understood as the totality of answers allowed by this question” (N. Belknap and T. Steele “Logic of questions and answers”), and in this case the proposed answer implicitly contains the entire set of such answers. Here, the presupposition of the question includes a reference to the freedom (“desire”) of the questioner, to which a reference to the freedom of the questioner is adequate in the answer. This is if we proceed, so to speak, from the logical volume. In terms of actual scope, “knowing what counts as an answer is equivalent to knowing the question” (k. Hamblin), so the totality of knowledge that a person has and that can be answers to questions determines the range of preferred questions – since any question is a request for information. Finally, in the heuristic plan, a person also wants such other people's questions, the answers to which (relevant information) he does not have, but can interiorize the questions themselves: make them “their own” – in order to realize their ignorance in order to fill it.
