Is there ever an original thought that has never been thought before? From this question, another is proposed: Has this question been asked before? I'm sure it has. Does that answer my question?

If you think about it, the origin of thought had to start somewhere.
Just because the question "is there any original thought?" has already been asked.. doesn't mean other questions haven't been.
Otherwise, how would society evolve at all? How would there be movements or changes?
But then the question also raises as to when original thought ceases.. and how finite our brains really are...

My brain didn't hurt before but it does now.
Thank you.

I think that there is a possiblity of an orginal question but it is very unlikely, unless it is about something that has been invented or discoveried recently. I think that sometimes we think that we have to come up with an original question in order to make changes and I don't believe that is true. I think in order to make changes you can take an old question and have an orginal thought about the question being asked. I think that more might come from original thinking than original questions.

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
