Living the same old same old (SOSO) and What You See Is All There Is (WYSIATI) is like trampling back and forth over soil until it becomes so hardened that it is hardly capable of growing anything.
But curiosity and inquiry can break open the most trampled down lives:
I was just barely holding onto the principle that the brain that generates the question usually generates the best answer.*
