If the intention of a maze was to "overwhelm with wonder" and so the root of amaze, originally meant to "stupefy, to make crazy", and so on to amazing, then how did revolt become so revolting?

ALSO SHORT NOTE ON DEATH OF COOL: In its brief contemporary context, cool has gone from meaning 'the ability to discern shit that doesn't matter and so not have to give a shit about it', to 'mindless enthusiasm for anything one does not yet know'.
