Speculation – Could We Get New Physics By Asking The Wrong Questions?

The idea is simple. Asking the right questions is pretty limiting. Therefore I wonder if you can get a more extensive search by including the wrong questions. At least they could be interesting or they could inspire even more questions.

Example of a “wrong” question.

Lossy compression seen in .jpg images is pretty important for storing images, videos and audio. Could it be so important and fundamental that the universe takes advantage of lossy compression for storing and transmitting information. Since you have many photons in motion at any given time in the universe and we discovered the particle wave duality. Maybe the wave part for photons and the wave part in Fourier based lossy compression is connected. This makes me wonder if there exist lossy compression that is energy conserving but a bit lossy or a bit random like for position. It would have a position quality parameter so it doesn’t brake any physical laws but still has some lossy compression ability.
