I thought I would share with you a quite interesting video of the mathematician Steven Strogatz recalling his first exposure to ``the mysterious'' from when he was a freshman in high school. It occurred while performing a routine science lab experiment, and afterwords he had an epiphany, an understanding of what the phrase ``law of nature'' meant.
