What feeling does this video generate in your core ?

van Gogh told his brother that when he looked at the stars, he felt hope. So do I.
i love stuff like this but it doesn't really move me that much.
i just see a video. in the real world i've seen the northern lights and was profoundly moved. i used to do a bit of climbing and when you look at the sky from a place that isn't surrounded but light you get a funny feeling in side. you're able to see real shooting stars bouncing off the atmosphere.

Yeah. The real world stars are what I meant too. As for the man talking, I've seen him before. There are many ideas you can find just thinking about the way things work out there, and in here. Like they say, looking at things from higher dimensions makes things seem less complicated. Look at the world, and your life, and the lives of others from higher dimensions. It's similar.
well.......
Aaah poo, I'll just poem how I feel about it.


--the most astounding fact--

The trees and I
we are the same,
Farts of stars, congealed gas.

Dog piss lamp-posts,
a shit-eating fly,
our veins made from one single ass.

To claim a stake,
as special o'l me,
absurd!
im the same smell as all.

one weensy cell,
seeping with breath
in an overgrown life shopping-mall.



hehe,
but in the wiser words of an infinitely better poet (Czeslaw Milosz):

Love means to learn to look at yourself"
The way one looks at distant things
For you are only one thing among many."
