My Top 10 List: Top 10 Intellectual Questions ever asked on Quora.

There are over 15 million questions asked on Quora…!

It certainly boggles my mind that so many people post questions which can be answered in seconds by using Google or some other search engine which creates a need of top 10 list to highlight the intellectual questions ever asked on Quora. However, I keep it for you to judge if Quora is getting overcrowded with unnecessary questions since the inception of free internet service started by the network giants.

Below I have crafted the top 10 intellectual questions ever asked on Quora in my opinion. I tried to make this list as interesting as possible. Let us begin…

Time Travel

I have found a lot of interesting questions related to time travel, the best one I have ever got is “Why are people from the future not time traveling to our period, assuming time travel technology is available in the future?

We might be in the duration where we are too late to explore the earth and too early to explore the time travel phenomenon which might need a lot of ground work. However, time travel concept is not yet practically proven but there is a tremendous intellectual discussion on this which refers to 4th & 5th dimension. It is one of the top 10 intellectual questions asked on quora in my opinion.

However, there are lots of other questions which are interesting to read. Those are “Is time travel real or a myth?“, “What are mind blowing facts about time travel?

Gene Therapy

With advancements in Medical Electronics & Computation techniques there has always a question risen on ethics of gene therapy and debates on ethical boundaries of gene therapy. One of the best question I have seen on Quora is “What is the most popular disease treated by gene therapy?

There are a lot of other questions describing how we can improve intelligence using gene therapy. Imagine a world with symmetric behavior of each individual which discards negativity. However, in some secret corner of this earth there might be a couple of ongoing experiments on gene therapy the results of which are not publicly revealed. In my opinion, gene therapy can be best utilized in the medical domain to cure a patient in the preliminary stages without any symptoms. In my opinion, there is no need of commercial sector in the medical domain as health is the most important factor in everyone’s life and services can be provided for free. The focus on betterment of humanity in this question registers its place in the top 10 intellectual questions ever asked on Quora list.

A lot of life threatening diseases might be cured with advancements in gene therapy by reaching the root cause of it. However, it appears to be very sophisticated in this decade as even a minor change in therapy might lead to a huge loss. There are other intellectual questions asked like “Can we replace damaged brain parts with computational devices” which can be explored.

Self Growth

Again, there are very interesting questions which demand intellectual answers. I was impressed from one of the question which is infact one of the most viewed one which is “What can I learn/know right now in 10 minutes that will be useful for the rest of my life?

With information on finger tips, users are demanding for quicker ways of achieving success. It appears to be most powerful question asked on Quora, imagine even if any one answer listed on that question changes a life of a person; it creates a lot of impact. The level of impact this question generates made its place in top 10 intellectual questions ever asked on Quora list.

However, it is debatable that how can 10 minutes help in changing the life of a person. In my opinion, even a trigger/direction in 10 minutes might help a person on a long run.

Questions not formulated yet

It is interesting to know if there is any formula which can help us know how many more probable questions can be formulated. It might also help Quora to plan their infrastructure as sometimes it takes too long to load. Just Kidding!

One such question I have seen on Quora is “What questions have never been asked on Quora?” Keeping Quora aside, there are lots of other websites with loads of unique questions asked. It is very tough to evaluate the rate of questions asked on such websites. Also, imagine a situation where such websites answered almost everything and there is nothing left to ask for an year/decade?

In my opinion, with increase in research, we will always be crowded with tons of questions which were never asked.


Superhero on our universe? Is it possible? There are lots of questions available on superheros & the possibility of having superheros in our universe. One of the interesting question I have seen on Quora is “Given our current technology and with the proper training, would it be possible for someone to become Batman?

If technology is considered, in my opinion, ethical hackers are the real superheros. I keep it for you guys to comment whether we can have a batman in near future with advancements in technologies & obviously a person with background like Bruce Wayne. However, there are tons of questions asked on Quora related to Superheros but this question made its place in top 10 intellectual questions ever asked on Quora list.

Deep Sea Creatures

Did you know: There are over 100 million species. Scientists now think there may be more species in the deep sea than in all the other environments on Earth combined – by some estimates, as many as 100 million species may live there. The deep sea is beyond most people’s direct experience – but you may be more familiar with some of its creatures than you think.

One of the question which I found intellectual is “What are some amazing deep sea creatures and why?“. Answers on this question will give us a glimpse of deep sea creates.

Advancements for betterment

This generation has witnessed an immense growth and change when compared with our past. If we look back 10 – 20 years we know the scale of improvement the technology & advancements have made to our lives. Yet, there are lots of things which can be improved and prioritized.

One of the intellectual question I have seen on Quora is “Why is it that the human race still allows poverty in this world?“. Is it a shame that despite being scientifically, intellectually, medically and financially advanced like never before, there’s still poverty, famines and umteen number of sufferings in the world? However, a better future demands all such problems to be tackled at an early stage with use of latest technology & increase in information.

A Puzzle

A prisoner is told: “if you tell a lie we will hang you, if you tell truth we will shoot you.” What can he say to save himself? Can you answer this one?

Bitcoin value

Each Bitcoin is basically a computer file which is stored in a ‘digital wallet’ app on a smartphone or computer. People can send Bitcoins (or part of one) to your digital wallet, and you can send Bitcoins to other people. Every single transaction is recorded in a public list called the blockchain. One of the interesting question on this topic is “Why do bitcoins have value?

Have you thought that why does Bitcoin have value and how is the price determined? We might have previously known that bitcoin value is fluctuating but is also gradually increasing. There is a famous post which says once a person purchased a pizza with a bitcoin. The same bitcoin is valued at 10k dollars as of now.
