#briefly, #what’s on my mind #jasonsilva #shotsofawe
Decided to go through last SHOTS OF AWE episodes today – a short film series of “trailers for the mind” that serve as philosophical espresso shots exploring innovation, technology creativity, futurism and the metaphysics of the imagination. I already wrote an entire blog post on this amazing online project called “Mind boggling experience for body and soul in less than 3min.“so please have a look at that. To keep the information in the flow though, I decided to share this reminder about Shots of Awe again, as I watched some of the latest short videos and as usual got inspired, uplifted and mind blown 😉 Hope You will too. Pay attention to words being spoken during watching shots of awes.These videos present not only visually phenomenal masterpiece but all episodes are loaded with great information and often mention titles of great books and authors worth checking out, like Ray Kurzweil “Singularity is Near”, Buckminster Fuller’s books, Marshal McLuhan, Joseph Campbell, etcetera.
Call me crazy but I feel always amazingly energised and wonderfully nourished by these philosophical espresso shots that give a positive adrenaline rush with the inner power to conquer the world without caffeine caused migraines or energy drop downs after a while.
Why I keep watching those episodes? Well think one of them describes it best – I am just passionately c u r i o u s ! Loving cognitive ecstasy! Awakening my wonder Junkie day after day!
0. The Ecstasy of Curiosity
Very last episodes to sink all your senses into!
1. Actualizing The Human Imagination – turn yourself INSIDE OUT. What is withIN becomes withOUT.
“Life is purposeful, death is optional, God is technological and love is essential” – Terasem philosoph
2. How Our Creations Change Us
“We design our world, while our world acts back on us and designs us.” – Anne-Marie Willis
3. How We Create Serendipity
“Here juxtaposition is revealed as the basic formal operation of synchronicity, as two apparently unrelated events or elements suddenly form a secret link that strikes, in the mind of the perceiver, an evanescent lightning bolt of meaning.” – Erik Davis
For more just tap into Shots of Awe youtube channel and do a small marathon with stimulating your brain with ecstatic visions you’ll see and some great lines you’ll hear.
Additionally – one of my favourites:
* Nonconformity and the Creative Life
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music”
For more visit my previous post HERE. I think I will never get bored with this online project of passing forward Jason Silva’s vibrating passion for knowledge. Think THAT – we might have in common 😉
Honestly I think Shots of Awe should be made compulsory lessons at schools. I am more than sure that all kids would love it! Not even mentioning the inspirational effect on their psyche!
Wishing you lots of eureka bulbs switching on while getting some Shots!
