Rob: So you did this workshop last night, which I attended - a short workshop, and you asked the question what evokes wonder and awe and I'll just tell you what I wrote down -

GL: Right, what is that?

Rob: Mountains, I'm a skier, so standing at the top of the mountain, looking out is just something I love and it's wonderful.

GL: Right.

Rob: Sunsets, wild animals, seeing them -

GL: Right.

Rob: And observing them.

GL: Right.

Rob: Talent and a change of heart.

GL: Oh, interesting.

Rob: Seeing somebody change their mind; change from angry to heart-ful.

GL: Right.

Rob: Those are I think of.

GL: Right.

Rob: What are some examples that you would list that you've encountered in people or your own wonders?

GL: Oh, goodness, I mean my own - you see I had a friend tell me once, I was watching a sunset and I was I guess, going crazy in my usual fashion around how remarkable it is that you know, this force throws this incredible palette of colors across the sky. And he said my God, you act like you've never seen a sunset before, and I said well, I've never seen this one. You know, but I - you know, things as simple as that. Things as simple as taking a magnifying glass out on my hikes, which I carry in my backpack now as a regular feature of walking because the world is utterly transformed with the simple technological addition of a magnifying glass, which completely changes what you're looking at and can bring the wow factor out quite readily. But I think of my father when I think of this entire chapter, and I really dedicate this chapter to my dad because he was a scientist and because he taught me the alien game.
