How well has been the reception by the audience around you when they wanted to hear the ‘expert’ in the subject matter & you kind of interrupted the flow of ideas?

B. Can’t a novice question the existing concepts even though he or she may be in a position to observe from a different vantage point?
I request your views so that we can explore this together…
