Well, if you are talking about natural things: a diamond.

masstreble: On the mysteries of the natural world:

Wuh? Naaaah, those are just carbon atoms compacted into tight little covallent squares. Natural things that are hard to imagine:

Atmospheric sciences.
Genetic engineering.
The reasons why you sort of get this full-body tingling feeling when you hear something really awesome, like a particularly moving piece of music.
Quantum physics.
The evolutionary reasons why humans have this type of head-hair.

I smile when I realize just how perplexing the universe still is.
