Now more than ever, it’s worth reminding ourselves that "knowing is a good thing, but so is not-knowing. " And that was Max artistic goal: to invite people to celebrate the beauty of mystery and not-knowing, “Because a life without mystery is not worth living”.

This is a great approach for a magician and artist. Standing in stark contrast to the claims of woo peddlers and their supporters, it’s an outlook that skeptics and scientists can easily and happily embrace. Mystery can exist without mysticism.

It sounds like he had a wonderful career and life.


I’m glad to see Maven used his powers for good; unlike his lookalike.


I’m doing is something in the middle

That is devine to read & know.


How long until Mitch Horowitz gets on here and writes a hit piece on him?
