    Not gonna lie, I just skimmed it. Could someone who had the time to watch the whole thing confirm my suspicion: that this is just new-age hippie bullsh*t?

    The User Attention Span
    A few years ago the average attention span for a web user was about 8 seconds. Your site had to load in those few seconds or display contect or else you potentially lost a user. That was during the "covered wagon" days of the Internet. With more people getting broadband access the playing field is changing yet again.

    Just remember this when posting long videos!

    "Thriving is the natural form of life".. NO !.. All wild animals struggle every second of their lives, for food, territory, mates, and at the same time they need to be on a constant lookout for predators, or they will meet a violent bloody end..

    I`m only about 3 minutes in.. is there any point going on?

    Yup. Flicking through, round about 1 hour and 5 minutes in, they introduce David Icke as a supporter of whatever their theory was. I don`t know if North Americans will be familiar with him. He`s a British former professional goalkeeper, who made headlines some years ago, round about the turn of the millennium, with his crazy theories about the second coming and reptilian shape-shifters that are apparently capable of taking human form, whom he thinks inhabit the centre of the Earth. In short, he`s a crackpot on the level of L Ron Hubbard, that clearly has mental health issues. Any British person seeing him being held up as an advocate of any idea would immediately conclude the idea must be risible.

    Yeah, Icke`s latest theory is that the moon is actually a giant spacecraft - Not a credible source for anything IMHO.

    The only way I can explain science occurring is the past is that aliens gave it to them.

    There is no way humans could have figured something out before I was alive so aliens told them about it.

    Though I thought the message was overall good, I couldn`t get passed the conspiracy theories and the alien bull5h1t. I have and will further doing some of the things they recommend, but I got to say, I think they got a bit too obsessive. Not to mention, that the journalism aspect of this piece was not fair. It should have allowed for some insight against what it`s overall message was and allow us to make the decisions ourselves.

    David Icke... really... is that the best you could come up with. The guys believes that the lizard people are replacing all high level politicians and royals in the world so they can start the new lizard world order. Yeah, i`m gonna believe in an idea that he`s involved with, until he came along and they got obsessed with the banking thing it was ok. Not the best conspiracy movie i`ve ever seen though.

    I love all the cynics and critics against these types of things.

    We should be EMBRACING this. Opening our minds to it.

    500 year ago... the world was flat--thinking different was ridiculous.

    This is introducing concepts we desperately need.
    In fact, needed 50 years ago.

    The worst is yet to come for humanity, I`m afraid.
    Thinking otherwise is just enjoying your blissful ignorance.

    Sigh.

    @rickwhite The Greeks figured out that the earth was round in the Classical era, and the western world never forgot it. The idea the medieval people thought that the earth was flat is a myth perpetuated by people who wanted to make themselves seem more advanced by comparison.

    18 mins I lasted. Yeah I get it, the acient cultures can do Geometry, there is a ratio that is found in various scales throughout the universe. Have any of them thought that all this is just a by product of the laws of nature or something. People are too casual in saying that there is no such thing as a coincident when the chances are just as likely that there is no meaning to anything. It just happens to be this way.
