This video is mind blowing, as I've often thought of many of these concepts, particularly about my temporal view of the past and the concept of old, judging age by the era the media was captured in and perceiving things as 'old' that were in fact not that old. Add to that the whole concept of time accelerating as we get older, I nailed that one, but at 53 did not know the statistic that at this point it should begin to plateau. I'm going to have to watch this episode several more times to unpack this - the presentation is so full, it was like when you read a book and you have to stop and go back a paragraph to figure out what the author meant in the current paragraph, because you're still processing the past one. BTW, the "Chronocentric Illusion" would be better labelled "Chronoegocentric Illusion"... you can have that BTW. You're welcome!

I'll watch a show and still think the characters are the same age relative to me. For example, I was a little kid when I first saw Full House . Danny, Jesse, and Joey were older than me. I am now older than they were on the show but in my mind, I still think of them as being older than me.

He kept changing his shirts. I was waiting for him to say at the end " note how you didnt notice how many times i changed my shirt, your mind has already forgotten the less important details for you after only 30 min." And for me to be then like " nah i gotchya"... but ya that failed thank you. Does he change shirts in all vids he makes?

Amazing stuff. It's interesting to play with the scale of time. Consider that everything that has happened in the past 5,000 years is only 0.0001% of Earth's history. If the history of Earth were a 2-hour movie playing at 24 frames per second, all of human civilization would be on the very last frame. Basically all of human history would be a subliminal message at the end of the credits of that movie.

At 20:13 you kinda realise when looking back at all the pictures youve seen no one actually has a full smile. you can always see something in there smile that shows something was wrong at the time of the picture. That picture at 20:13 may actually be the only picture of someone fully smiling with joy

Hey Vsauce, Michael there... that Pipe Dream, when I was a teen, (we're about the same age) I was in Middle School band, and they used the Animusic with the percussion ensemble to sync up with the music. You can also see now that the Animusic Pipe Dream was rebuilt as an actually real thing by Intel. I never thought it was real but I have very different memories of it, where we spent a great deal of time with the 3D Animation in practices for the concert. There's also a whole bunch of other great videos by them from that era.
