For this assignment we were tasked with finding a recording or voice over we liked and simply create an animation to it. As I was exploring the internet for great speeches, music, quotes, and more I came across Alan Watts. He has a great collection of discussions detailing his thoughts on consciousness, the universe, and the human experience. This short excerpt from Alan Watts Out of Your Mind Speech, breaks down the idea of polarity and the universal connection humanity has not only with itself but with the Earth and with reality. He invites listeners to take note of the universal duality of existence, black and white, single and many, life and death, the idea of humanity being thrown into oblivion with no meaning is compared with the idea that You are absolutely necessary in this universe despite not being aware as to how. A simple perspective shift allows us to become more open minded to the mundane experiences of everyday life.
