Friday Videos Are Blinding You with Science

Chris sent me this jaw-dropping amazing video that’s a feast for the ears, the brain, the eyes and the imagination: “We Are All Connected” was made from sampling Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, The History Channel’s Universe series, Richard Feynman’s 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye’s Eyes of Nye Series.

Dude. Awesome. May you have a weekend full of wonderment.

    As someone who faithfully watched Cosmos, its amazing to see Sagan’s poetry of science regenerated in such a contemporary and effective way.  (Oops. I’m geeking out.)

    Here’s another one along those lines, featuring Sagan and Stephen Hawking:

    BTW, Feynman is a secondary character—of sorts—in Elizabeth Bear’s Hammered.

    Oops. Geeking out again.  Can’t help it. I’m surrounded by mathematicians and computer geeks in my day-to-day life.  My spouse, in partcular, read Kuzweil last year for pleasure reading!

    I may… MAY… be a nerd.  But that made me cry.

    I teared up too, Jennifer.  I think the refrain is absolutely gorgeous, and if someone ever asked me for an example of transcendence that doesn’t reference a religious belief, this video would be a viable candidate. 

    Wishing you and your family peace, Leslie.

    This made me smile.  Sagan is a peripheral character – of sorts – in my 2009 Golden Heart finalist, UNDERBELLY, as well.

    If anybody’s interested in downloading the songs or the videos, they’re available free at the Symphony of Science website! 

    I loved these so hard.

    Not only is this incredibly catchy, but it takes me back to my fascination with science when I was a kid. There’s just something about those late seventies/early eighties science programs, like Nova and 3-2-1 Contact…

    If you’ll excuse me, I now feel compelled to go reread some Feynman.
