My New Video on Who We Are

Post by Apologeticsislying » Sun Sep 06, 2020 1:22 pm

Come and enjoy my new philosophy video based on Alan Watts idea of who we are. I think it will be a well spent 21 minutes.

Ah, go with the flow of the universe or drink deeply from the Brook Madrigot* of higher energy potential. Good stuff, Kerry!

Thanks Kerry! I really enjoyed it. There's a lot of wisdom in there.

I really enjoy Watts' observations. The reminder that we are grow out of the universe like leaves from a tree and that the universe "peoples" as the ocean "waves" has really stuck with me. I also really like his concerns about religion narrowing our potential and detaching us from our relationship with reality, rather than explaining it.

BTW, what is the piece of music you use at the beginning?

Thanks guys! The music is one of those free ones I am allowed to use with no copyright violations.
