This guy is like Bill Nye on steroids. This is the best channel on NOpost. I actually feel 50 IQ points smarter and became a better citizen of the world everytime I watch one of his videos. Since he is so gifted at teaching and explaining, in-depth to great detail, these sometimes difficult concepts to grasp - to the common lay-person, I would love to see a video presentation on the Klein Bottle and even one on quantum entanglement. Thanks.

I've always thought about that, how doing some exercise for just one minute seems like forever, yet watching a 5 minute video seems to go by in less than 5 seconds, not even necessarily, some videos seem to go by much slower than others even if they have the exact same length.

Okay so if retrospective time means that essentially empty activities in the past are seen as brief....uh does that mean my whole life was empty? Not to be edgy but I honestly can’t remember things that have happened yesterday and much less for those that happened years ago. Like my childhood is blank. Someone smart has any explanation for this?

Practical advice from this video: Prefer short-long patterns of felt time e.g. have exciting days. Avoid the short-short patterns of felt time e.g. don't watch TV alone.

Vsauce: "when something becomes part of the past, can it ever be truly experienced again?" Me, watching this video for a second time: "hmmnmmmm" No, seriously. I mean, yeah I'm watching this video again, but I'll never be able to watch it for the first time, ever again. The excitement of getting to watch a new Vsauce video after I've waited so long for a new one can never be experienced upon watching this video ever again for me. Yes, I'm watching this video again, but it'll never be the same. Never the same as the first time.

One of the things I can't deal with as someone over 50 is that I no longer trust anything as a "past image" or video. I can tell that "That 70's Show" is not in the 70's, but I am skeptical when I see "retro" stuff or hear "retro" music. It's becoming difficult to tell when something is created to look like something from the past.

the definition of now... man that affects me so often when I see a video pop up and it says '1 month ago' my mind goes eh, they don't know about ~the last month~ so it might not be relevant but I saw this posted '1 week ago' i said ah that's 'now' let's watch....
