    Pretty cool.

    I really like the type of things that make sense by themselves, but just makes so much more sense when explained properly. Or when something is in plain sight and you dont see it until it is pointed out. Its just pretty cool.

    I wish I could double love something :) I really dig the ending of this video.

    “The real value of a real education which has (almost) nothing to do with knowledge and everything to do with simple awareness. Awareness that is so real and essential, so hidden in plain site all around us all the time that we have to keep reminding ourselves over and over, this is water. ”

    Thanks for posting this vid.
