Hover over each card to explore a new Dimension of Inquiry


How to Ask Meaningless Questions

STEP 1: Start by finding a source and asking any question that comes to your mind. Don’t try to sound smart. Be raw, naive, and inarticulate. See how many questions you can ask. Make sure to write your questions down.

STEP 2: Once you run out of questions, pick a Meaningless Question card from the deck, and try to ask just 1 more question (or maybe 3, 5 or even 10!). Each card introduces a new “Dimensions of Inquiry” to explore, helping you ask innovative questions about your source. With the help of these cards, watch as 10 questions turn into 50, 100, even 500.
