Finding Wonder

I often look at mystery from different perspectives and try to understand how it can be transformed into wonder. And part of it has to do with something I intrinsically knew but I couldn’t articulate. It was only when I read Wonder, The Rainbow and the Aesthetics of Rare Experiences by Philip Fischer that I found the perfect exploration of that. This becomes even more interesting when we think about magic and deception because it is not the solutions but the absence of those that are a vehicle to create wonder. There is the moment where the audience questions the world and the moment where the answers are found: which is stronger?
