If we don't begin to try, at least, to formulate the questions, those
will never evolve, and a possible science could not be born.

Besides, I am not sure there is something like "science". Only
people with scientific attitude relatively to their questioning,
trying to be honest and clear, with themselves and others.

You are like someone saying to Newton it is useless trying to
figure out what happens in the sky because we don't know what matter
or sky are.

We can make hypotheses, and then make reasoning, and observations,
but question precedes science, like faith precedes concepts.

A question is never right or wrong. Questions grews from inner
feelings, hope, fear, intellectual curiosity, fun, astonishment, etc.
(all psychological predicates).

You begin with "not found the right questions" to end with "questions
does not exist". You are quite quick on this.
Are you not a little bit dogmatic on physicalism?

Perhaps you are not interested in those questions. Different people
ask different questions. That is what makes conversation worth...
Science is quite good sometimes to just relate questions.
My thesis shows that if comp is true, i.e. if there is a sense
to survive with an artificial brain (copy from the original
at *some* description level) then physics should be derivable
from psychology/information science/computer science ...
I could be wrong. No doubt, but apart from some gesticulation
in front of the novelty, no flaws has been detected.
(Sometimes I wish someone find one!)

If you want *questions* you can still take a look at the dozen UDA
questions I asked in the everything-list, cf for instance:

This concerns FOR because comp is part of it.

And perhaps comps lead to some deeper foundation of both
quantum and quale.
