    We tried something new this time. Many people seem to feel existential dread when they watch our videos. So we wanted to talk a bit about the world view that is behind our scripts. The philosophy of Kurzgesagt if you want to. Hope you like it! Back to science next video.

    This video also begins the new Kurzgesagt bi-weekly video cycle. So next video in about two weeks.

    This video encouraged me to finally ask out my crush while I still have the chance… She told me to fuck off but at least I know not to waste my precious time on her

  8. Colateral says:

    It scares me that one day I will die. And it’s irracional of me to think that. Why would I be afraid if I won’t be able to think or feel? I was non-existant during a lot of time too. So why am I afraid? I don’t even know. It’s like I don’t want to lose this. Conscioussness, I don’t want to lose it. I feel like I would fight for my life in a critical situation because it’s too precious to me. Am I making sense or not?

  20. Joel Rodriguez says:

    Why is it hard for some to come to the conclusion that humans have caused more harm than good?
