The butterfly is fascinated by light, which often leads to its loss. Let’s put things into perspective because the life of butterflies is one of the shortest.
This does not prevent some, however fascinated by butterflies, from killing them for the sole pleasure of keeping them behind glass or in a transparent box…
Fascination is a kind of hypnosis. To be fascinated is to not manage to divert one’s attention from an object, a living being, a landscape, a sound…
And since this fascination is also a kind of ecstasy, it causes an avalanche of neuro-transmitters and hormones which short-circuits resonance and this famous free will so dear to humans but which ultimately they practically never use, fascinated as they are by what comes from the reasoning of others, or even from totally artificial intelligence.
So try to be amazed instead. The marvelous is pure pleasure! It doesn’t block your intellect, it boosts it!
