Which is the more powerful in solving the world's biggest problems - Doubt or Certainty?
When confronted with seemingly insurmountable problems, what would be the advantages and disadvantages of each approach?
When doubt or certainty are allied to belief systems and/or conventional wisdom, do they become and more - or less - powerful in their ability to solve such problems?
Is it better to try to view the overall picture of a problem in order to solve it and then work towards the relevant detail, or to be more focused on close-up detail first and then to work outwards to try and find the bigger context?
