This channel is extremely good and the videos are produced beautifully. It's a RARE thing to get deep philosophical ideas discussed and integrated so well within 15-30 minute videos.

"In this video I talk about human existential nihilism of the modern age in the 21st century and how it may be possible that radical activism within anti-natalism, veganism and climate activism correspond to bringing about catharsis in relation to the modern, pitiful search for meaning and purpose within the realm of human existence."

Jean Gebser's ideas in the The Ever-Present Origin also correspond well with what he discusses in regards to the Eternality of the Great Mother and the consciousness of magical cultures. Frequently we find statutes with no eyes or mouths in these cultures, because the auditory sense is much stronger than the visual sense or the spoken word. Nature was all-encompassing and therefore the notion of "progress" did not exist.
