Re: Wonder Itself


It may seem obvious, but Wonder itself should be considered a Wonder of the World. Without a sense of wonder, we as a species would probably never left our tree branches or caves and made our way to the suburbs. Without Wonder, we wouldn't have fire or agriculture or art or snack chips or the ability to binge-watch Netflix.

As M. C. Escher said, "He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder." And he continued to say it until he was eaten by a large snake.

Although, now that I actually see that written down, maybe I just dreamed that last part at four in the morning, as I lay on the couch binge-watching Netflix, a wet mash of Doritoes crumbs in my beard. And I don't even have a beard.

Ewwww.
