What is this wiki for?[edit | edit source]

Let's ask and answer questions together.

Each page of this wiki will be centered on one question (with possible subquestions). It's not clear yet what questions should be allowed. But at least some of these questions will be open questions. That is, they won't have any known answers yet. For these open question pages we'll track relevant sources, related questions, possible/proposed answers, possible experiments to decide between the answers etc. Basically the page would distill where the frontier of knowledge is on that question, and possible ways to push that frontier forward.

See here and here for some of the motivations for this project and possible alternative platforms for answering open questions.

How do we add a question page?[edit | edit source]

First search for the question in the search bar. If it doesn't look like the question has been asked, you'll be able to add the question page in the search results page.
