I have to tell you, I was moved to tears when I first watched this video last night, something only Mufasa's death in The Lion King has ever managed to do before. The thought that we are intricately and inextricably a part of the universe we live in is a beautiful one, one that is a million times more uplifting, enriching and awe inspiring than anything any religion or god could ever invoke.
As this is my last post of the year, I thought this would be a fitting and inspiring thought to usher in the new year. I wish you all a prosperous, jubilant and discovery filled 2011.
Cheers
Jabu

This is really a great video. To know that the Universe is aware of itself through us is really the closest thing to a spiritual feeling that I could know. To think that the stars that burned bright so many millions of years ago and even billions of years ago and then burned for so long shows us that the evolutionary processes are powerful enough to take "inert" matter and create sentience from it.

 

Plus it is one of the good uses for an auto-tuner
