Ducky asks
What do you mean?
I mean that the dagesh is independent of the function of the H, be it an ה-השאלה or ה-הידיעה.

What does it mean for a dagesh to be "independent"? Dagesh forte follows the definite article (ה-הידיעה).

The dagesh "forte" does not "follow" the ה-הידיעה.

I'm not going to go about giving you more examples. I've wasted enough time on your "objections" this week. Please, just stop.

OK, then I will bring my own example:
הַבַּיִת
I do, indeed, see a dot (a "dagesh forte") placed inside the letter בּ, but the dot is not there because the ה before it is ה-הידיעה, not even because it is an ה.
