Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell
Animation videos explaining things with optimistic nihilism since 12,013.

We’re a team of illustrators, animators, number crunchers and one dog who aim to spark curiosity about science and the world we live in. To us nothing is boring if you tell a good story.

For updates on our videos and other news from the kurzgesagt universe follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

You've probably thought of this for an idea for a video/videos, but you should do a video on the five senses, or a mini series for the five sense, I think with how you explain things, it would be really cool to see

We know so little about consciousness that we might find out it isn't even contained in our brain at all, the brain could end up being an antenna that receives our consciousness, but lets assume we can upload it to a 'computer' this would be a copy, the original would still exist and die in the body eg. YOU! We will probably have and easier time re programming our cells to keep regenerating themselves so we can live forever. What ever we become, it will be so different that humans now cannot grasp what it will really be like which is why I laugh at comments about how awful living forever would be.

People have witnessed what was for them the end of their world. E.g. many theologically minded people saw the philosophy of Kant (nicknamed ‘the All-destroyer’) as a veritable apocalypse. *AND IT WAS.* That is precisely human history; that we can suffer the end of the world, and span the present and its total contradiction. This video seems to suggest (very much in line with its scientistic faith) that we should think of human history as a straight uninterrupted line. This is the most reactionary conservatism, the most backward thinking. Nothing happens in the belief that the future is visible and at our disposal. In the contrary view, that the future cannot be imaged or conceived under current concepts and desires, means that the coming of the future makes a real apocalypse, the end of everything we know. This radical break which makes history itself justifies and makes necessary apocalyptic thinking. Yes. You do live in the end times, and if we survive this apocalypse, the future wont look anything like the animations in this video, or anything our scientists can speculate about. Kurzgesagt’s recent turn away from scientific education and into scientistic speculation is saddening.

I read a book called "The Precipice" by Toby Ord on the subject. The book opened my eyes to future possibilities that weren't so bleak. It's cool to see you talk about it

I don't believe the Kurzgesagt team really understand how much their fantastic creations can fuel in us the optimism and show a silver lining we so desperately need. Thank you a thousand times for your dedication and hard work. I feel nothing but humility when watching their content, and love for this channel.

If we round up the amount of people alive today to 10 billion, which will probably happen around 2050, it really puts things into perspective. If the lower estimate of another 100 trillion people will be born, that means that, on average, each person is responsible for another 10,000 being born. With the higher estimate, if humans leave the solar system, each person will be responsible for 10 quintillion people. If that's the case, that so many people could possibly come from each person alive today. Surely, we should do everything in our power to make life better for everyone. Expand welfare and social housing. Give workers better wages, better hours, better jobs. Expand human rights, abolish poverty, promote racial harmony, stop climate change, increase access to birth control and abortion. To reduce the amount of unhappiness in the world, and make life better for everyone that will be born by doing things today. Such as, through increasing generational wealth, the number 1 determinant for life-success, and reduce adverse childhood experiences, the number 1 determinant for poor life success. Money-grubbing politicians only interested in short term gains seem so damn stupid with this perspective. You're trying to make your own life better by screwing over millions of people? Wars seem so silly as well. Like, who even cares about a war about some tiny bit of land in the middle of nowhere, on one planet in one solar system. We're destined for so, so much more. And there is plenty to go around...

As a person who often thinks about this time being “The end” of humanity, this is actually a really nice perspective :)
