Ive always thought this vid was such a beautiful nihilistic synopsis beside satre's - nausea. Alhough Nausea had some lyrical mysonthropical parts. I still liked the surrendering parts Satre slipped in
I like this vid, and have always enjoyed anything from their channel. This one has a certain extra kick to it. :)
This is what I tried to express on several occasions. "Belief" only limits you in exploring the universe as this bias will always stay in the back of your head (and the fear of death etc.).
So why insist on exploring the (currently) unknowable rather than exploring what is in our (mental and physical) reach.
With time (within our individual lifespan or not) we may or may not advance enough to have an answer for (some of) the currently unknowable, no need to get ahead of ourselves.
I get to decide? What if I'm a pedofile? Or a murderer? Or a marketer? And so on. All experience is not worth the cost.
