What is invisible!!..Consciousness ?..Intelligence ?..God ? Gorilla ? The stars in day? The future or the past?
Our Thoughts ? The human genome ? Time as we know ? Atoms ? So much of what really matters in the world is impossible to see. A stunning animation of John Lloyd’s classic TEDTalk from 2009, which will make you question what you actually know. Lesson by John Lloyd, animation by Cognitive Media.


  • I study engineering so..
    Don’t worry “4” me, I can spell “You” but the N° of characters allowed in a comment is limited.
    Now Do u really believe that ur ancestor is a MONKEY?!
    How do u endure the concept of death? What’s Next? Just a black screen, NOTHINGNESS! How Stressful & DEPRESSING this is.
    I guess it is easier to live meaninglessly & flee any responsibility.
    I claim no credits in my beliefs, but I’m concerned about other people. It’s either Paradise or Hell for eternity, no third option.

  • Yes, way back our ancestors at one point resembled apes. Is this hard for you to accept?
    About death: Death is simply when your brain stops to function. You won’t understand when it happens, because you would need your brain to do that. It’s not a black screen.
    You can WANT god and paradise to be true all you want, but it still won’t make it true. This life here and now is what you got, don’t waste it on something as stupid as religion.

  • I (and you) am in the subgroup of apes called hominids. Apes are in the subgroup of primates called old world monkeys. My ancestor’s were monkeys and so am I.

    What’s to “endure” about death? All things end. I will end. There will not be “nothingness” because life will go on-but I won’t exist as an observer.

    How do you find meaning in your perceived life as the plaything of a celestial bully?
    How do you find comfort in the thought of life everlasting knowing others are being tormented ?

  • Did anyone notice that the boy’s hair covers his left eye the first time you see him (to our right). Time: 0:18 Then the next time, which is only a few seconds, his hair covers his right eye (to our left), for the rest of the video. Time: 0:29

  • so called “how questions” are conditioned on the more primary fact of human concern, viz an inherent “why” asking. try as we may to answer why questions by means of mechanistic how explanations, the two are as impossible to reconcile as the is and the ought.

  • How many Dictators,killers,Rapists…died without any Fair judgement?
    How many downtrodden people never got justice?
    Someone rich who lives just for himself, is he the same as someone who helps others even if he is not that rich? NO.

    Some people blame God for all the injustice in the world!
    Well this life is just a TEST.We are free to do whatever we want.But everyone will stand ALONE before GOD, With no translator, & then no matter how rich or powerful he was, He will answer for his deeds.

  • U Find Religion stupid.Apart from what U’ve been told by Media.How much did U personally read about ISLAM?Here’s what some Honest NON MUSLIMS said:
    “The sayings of Mohammed are a treasure of wisdom not only for Muslims but for all of mankind”Gandhi.
    “The teachings of Islam can fail under no circumstances. With all our systems of culture and civilization, we cannot go beyond Islam and, as a matter of fact, no human mind can go beyond the Koran.”Johann Goethe.(cited in Sir Henry Elliot’s Letters).
