“The Mystery Box”

I’ve long been a fan of J.J. Abrams – Felicity, Alias, Lost, etc. This short lecture by him is wonderful, insightful, funny, and inspirational…

Great interview. I don’t know what TED is and haven’t seen any of the shows, but I enjoyed the talk.

Thanks for sharing that, I really enjoyed it. You could draw some interesting spiritual applications on the role of mystery in the Christian life, as well.

Ok, I am listening again… and this is darn long to listen to again… but I am.
Anyway, I guess the application is that the Mysteries of God are what keep us interested. Likewise, that mystery gives an appreciation for what we don’t know, and like in the clip of JAWS, it inspires our awe and devotion, and ultimately our love.
I will be thinking of this later.
I also appreciated that JJ didn’t feel worthy of using his Apple Computer sometimes.
