A radically new question heuristic

What would the world look like without this problem?  

This is a classic example of a beautiful question, one capable of liberating new perspectives. It's startlingly different from the old question of how we could solve this problem.  

In some contexts, doing well involves creating whole new realities that make evident problems less relevant, dominant or impactful. This is particularly true in human rather than mechanical problems. 

The key is to research and craft as many relevant possibilities and then research and experiment with the world we can imagine free of this problem.
