Where does an answer come from?

(c.f. BofNK 21:58) I sit, become present to NOW; specify & clarify a topic & ask a question about it; intend to become conscious of what’s so about the subject; presence not knowing the answer; presence possibility I will know it; presence wanting to know the answer; return to asking the question every time I get off topic; wonder what the answer is. Often after this process comes an astounding answer - perhaps one I have never known before.  Where does it come from?
  1. It is not like reasoning - no linquistics except to pull some consciousness of what’s there out of the cosmic ooze.  (chaos not yet become cosmos otherwise, eh)
  2. It is like clarifying some sense.
  3. I’m not looking for a conceptual explanation to the title question nor an electro-chemical psychology process either.
  4. I’m going to put this question into a contemplation.
  5. Other methods of meditation like getting rid of all content & the anthroposophical way of constructing a conceptual object are different & perhaps for different purposes.
  6. Corrollary question: Where does the assurance of certainty come from & how do I know I have it? 
  7. Somewere underneath the unexpressed pre-verbal uncognized moment of holding the question is the answer.  How I know that is another contemplation.
  8. I must put more energy into clarifying the question. Lately the question changes to "What is the truth about what’s going on when an answer to a contemplated question shows up & how did it get there?"
  9. Is it all about presenting to ???(the cosmic ooze)  a perfect tear-drop of desire to know, right now in a pool of not knowing etc. with clarity, focus & wonder & acceptance?

It’s not Q & A – consciousness expands & the contemplated becomes obvious, eh?
