I'm not quite sure how to express this but... this video made me realize that "Philosophy and Metaphysics" and "Mythology" are "Current Events" in a
way now like it never has before (or at least hasn't in the public awareness for a long time).
In the same way computers now allow us to visualize mind boggling complex fractals in easy, dynamic, and digestible ways... our connectivity is
allowing us to visualize ourselves in newly complex but more digestible ways.
Think about how much is communicated in those 7 minutes and how many minds are processing it already versus trying to convey the same amount of ideas
to the same percentage of people capable of understanding it just a few decades ago, much less a few centuries ago.
The ability to merge concepts from politics to science to consciousness to metaphorical mythology to whatever else we can imagine is wonderful to
watch grow year after year (month after month these days, heh).
