It's both enlightening, and sad, to hear this man speak.
He definitely puts an interesting perspective on things (the sky just being a big vast emptiness, the Grand Canyon a big hole in the ground), but it
really made me realize that he lacks a perception of what natural beauty is. Which, in turn, made me realize just how much of my
beauty was based on things like color and shape, over physical analysis. The Grand Canyon, to me, like space and the sky, aren't impressive for their
size (something I noticed he brings up a lot), but for their inherent natural beauty: the colors, the shapes, and the sheer wonder of seeing them.
The video really leaves me torn. On one hand I'm trying to understand his perspective, to imagine the world the way that he does; at the same time
though, because of my predisposition to visual beauty, I am unable to fully disconnect from a world of color and shape, which he lacks when he
analyzes these things.
