To Think…

To think is to question everything, including thought, and question, and the process. To question requires that something happens that reason has not yet known.
Non-Western traditions of thought have a quite different attitude. What counts in their manner of questioning is not at all to determine the reply as soon as possible, to seize and exhibit some object which will count as the cause of the phenomenon in question. But to be and remain questioned by it, to stay through meditation responsive to it, without neutralizing by explanation its power of disquiet.
~ Lyotard, The Inhuman, p. 74.
