Mystery [is] not simply an unknown, like a puzzle. Puzzles, and many other kinds of other unknowns, beg to be solved, to be figured out. But mystery is bigger than that. It’s not that mystery is completely unknown, but that it’s ultimately elusive – you can know some things about mystery, but you can’t finally pin it down. In fact, “knowing” doesn’t seem like quite the right category when you’re talking about mystery. Because mystery defies knowing. But mystery also and simultaneously invites experiencing.
