Hope you all enjoy this video as much as I did. (not sure if you caught the very beginning, where the viewer is looking at their hands…)
I know one of the big topics of meditation is to meditate on infinite space, curious to know what types of meditations members have had on this. What types of visualization techniques do you use? What questions do you ask?
The Kurzgesagt group is pretty liberally biased, but their artwork and many of their vids are masterpieces.
not at all, I got to believe that the concept of infinite space turns even the brightest minds at NASA into mush upon deep contemplation. Newton had to invent a new branch of mathematics just to describe the ‘simple’ orbits of the planets in our system.
I remember seeing The Powers of Ten as a featurette at the NY World’s Fair in 1964, or maybe it was at Expo '67 in Montreal. It was later updated and reissued over a decade later. Heady stuff. Sure could use George Carlin today!
Loved that video. I think he is spot on about the plastic ‘problem’. For most people, they don’t really care about what plastic is doing to the environment, or ‘the planet’, they just don’t like seeing plastic on the sides of roads or washed up on their private beaches. Its an unsightly personal inconvenience to them, not an existential problem.
I am sickened though by the toxic chemicals we dump (China dumps) into our oceans.
