The Miraculous Improbability Of Your Entire Existence

Something about this year has been making me think about the brevity of life and how much we take for granted.

    And what if you are nothing more than a tiny tiny miniature creature that has no power to do anything because you live in your apartment ,in your block, in your neibourhood in your birthtown,which is obviously in country,part of Europe,part of Earth,part of Sun system,part of Milky way part of the Universe,which nobody knows how big is it,and whether The universe is part of other phenomen or not ;0.But in the same time in the physical world you have that urge to live and do something really big that is going to leave something that is going to have good impact on people's lives after your so short life compared to the infinity of the universe.Life is contradicted, in the process of learning in paralell you expand the unknown.You are never really going to know everything.And so the one thing that you can do is JUST LIVING in Full Power,

    I tear up everytime i watch this video . This is by far my favourite video of yours. You have so many rich thoughts and i can relate to you on so many ways. I thought i was the only person (or in my case 15 year old girl) that has these thoughts. I literally feel alienated in some way, eventhough i feel that other people who don't particularly share this depth are the aliens "like how do you not think about these stuff?" . Finding your channel is the best thing that has happened to me in a while ; I wish to meet you one day 😄😀

His videos help project such positive self image and I’m absolutely loving it. His voice is so soothing to the soul and content like these provides such assurance. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    How does anything exsist? Why am i able to breathe, speak, feel, hear ,see touch. It makes no sense. What is the purpose of existence not of just humans but of the universe(s). Does god really exsist and if so id like to see. Did he create us? How does he exsist. Why does outer space line up so perfectly, that we are able to live. Is this a simulation. Whats the purpose of exsistance. How did the first human exisit, what about the 2nd. Why am i, why are you here? Be thankful for living, espicaly since you dont know what your purpose is, or why we or anything exsist. Life truly is a gift.

Also having advocacy is huge part of developing oneself which at times helps us reduce our anxiety. Great vlogger! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
