What is Mystery Box?
Why ‘Mystery’?

Life Is A Mystery

Socrates (and many since) believed the unexamined life was not worth living.

So examine everything.

That’s the idea behind this blog, and the subscription box that will accompany it. To explore every inch of life: philosophy, history, science, spirituality, art, craft, and the natural world – one month, one topic, one prompt at a time. To get to know yourself, your town, and your species.

Those are big words, but what will that look like in practice? Follow this blog (in the left-hand bar) to get an idea of the quality and variety of things we have planned. Take a look at our prototype box to get a hint of the structure and form of future boxes. In short, stick around. It’s a big world out there, and we’re ready to dig in.

Our web posts will contain both information and a prompt: to create something, to reflect on a question, to get up and go somewhere or do something. Obviously, no one would (or could, or should) complete every single prompt. But to attempt none would be to miss the point entirely.

We are currently producing web content only. Boxes will ship the month after we get 50 preorders. If you want one, be sure to preorder and tell your family and friends and coworkers and casual acquaintences and complete strangers you stand next to in checkout lines.
