What if we stopped asking what if??

Now let's stop and think about this for a minute. What if we stopped saying what if? Would the human race be where they are right now?

Would we have made it out of the Stone Age if some caveman didn't say/think "What if I make this rock round?"

What if our American forefather's didn't say "I'm tired of being taxed without being represented! What if we declared our own independence?"

What if engineers didn't say "What if we dig a canal across Panama?"

What if architects didn't say "What if we build a building that is 100 stories tall?"

What if George Lucas didn't say "What if we start using computers and CGI to fully realize my vision for Star Wars?"

What if we all stopped using our imaginations?

What if we all stopped asking "What if???"

If we stopped saying "What if" we would never get anywhere.
We would still be leotard wearing Neanderthals

I'm of the mindset that it is important to ask "What If?" as well. If not to figure things out, at least for entertainment purposes.

If we stop asking questions, we might as well be like sheep to the slaughter...we will simply die out.

I believe, questioning all there is, is necessary for evolution on a conscious level, look around you everything artificial you see, was once someone's pondering. Than came the "What if" moment.

A glitch in the matrix....

Than again, what if I'm wrong....

Hans Gruber in Die Hard: "And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer."

Personally: If we stopped asking 'what if' then there would be no-thing left for us to create/explore and our 'work' would be done...then the divine beingness would ask...'what if it there was more?' and all the worlds would cry out in joy.

What if is a hugely important question. It enables the dreamers to dream, the inventors to invent, children to play and consciousness to expand.

this world would be dull and gray if we never asked "What if?"

I can't believe that some people don't find it important to ask that question.
