“As a magician, my job is to amaze and mystify people, as well as make them laugh. I think a sense of wonder is very important in this very scientific, rational time. People really appreciate having a moment of impossibility and a sense of wonder—even if it’s just for a few seconds. Without wonder, life becomes… kind of drudgery.
I also find wonder from nature. Going into nature turns off the brain for a minute and takes you out of the day-to-day mindset. It takes you somewhere special. There have to be moments like that in life. It’s an important thing.”
