    But isn’t wonder in itself a scientific phenomenon?

      Well, one can say that everything is a scientific phenomenon, in the sense that everything, from diffraction of light to our perception of it to our reflection upon it, involves processes studied by science. But most would say that the qualia of wonder are not the same thing as what science studies, and it is at best unclear whether that is something that science can study.

    Good comic. The lead character dude reminds me of an older Calvin.
