The problem is the solution


‘We are wrong to believe that the true and the false can only be brought to bear on solutions, that they only begin with solutions. […] This prejudice goes back to the childhood, to the classroom: it is the schoolteacher who “poses” the problems; the pupil’s task is to discover the solutions. In this way we are kept in a kind of slavery. True freedom lies in the power to decide, to constitute problems themselves. […]. But stating the problem is not simply uncovering, it is inventing … Invention, gives being to what did not exist; it might never had happened.’ Gilles Deleuze, Bergsonism.
