Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What is a question?“
A question is a desire that needs to be fulfilled. Once a desire arises, we need to fill it with its fulfillment.
Where do questions come from?
In the wisdom of Kabbalah, we call the place from which questions emerge “Reshimot” (“records”). Reshimot are inner informational data that surfaces in order to become realized. The need to realize this inner informational data is a question.
The realization itself is our actions. When we realize and fulfill this Reshimo (record), i.e., when it turns into a 3D sensation of our world, then we receive an answer.
