Indira Gandhi once said, "The power to question is the basis of all human progress." William Arthur Ward once said, "Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning." Charles Steinmetz once said, "There are no foolish questions, and no man becomes a fool until he has stopped asking questions." The point of them all is that the key to expanding our knowledge is to follow the paths which are both the most interesting and the least understood. For many researchers, theorists, and thinkers, like Mark and Sparx, it's that lack of understanding which inspires their intellectual curiosity and leads us to pursue the truths hitherto unknown by us, whether it's because nobody else has done it before, or because of a desire for personal fulfillment. What's something you were curious about and just had to chase after, and does it still drive you onward?

I love that we're getting answers to questions we had back when she was first attacked! So it wasn't just the mask face guy.

As for your A/N, I'm not sure if this is what you mean but I remember as a kid becoming obsessed with the planets because of Sailor Moon. I memorized them before we ever studied them in school. I could name them by placement from the sun. I was deeply offended when they demoted Pluto and over joyed to learn about the shared moon between Pluto and Charon. Disappointed that they missed the opportunity to name said moon Styxx, Hades, or Persephone.

This obsession with the planets turned to obsession with the zodiac and the planetary alignments and the stories that could hide out there. So, yeah, I guess it does still drive me. Not as strongly as when I was younger, but I love learning about the new things we discover out there.
