No ants were philosophically damaged in the making of this video.

A: Please don’t shout. I’m trying to finish the new book and a video on relativity, but they’re proving tricky. It’s where the majority of my time is going. I hope you’ll accept this video as a little peace offering. New videos, t-shirts with pithy and subversive slogans, and a book (did I mention a book?) will be out when they’re ready, and I’m working my jolly damndest to make them ready.
Cheers for being patient and hope you’re doing excellently in any case.

We are like the little ants, seeking knowledge. But is there someone to explain it to us even if we don't understand it?

I think that this is my favorite piece of content that you've ever put out and I just want to say that I'm thankful for all of the content that you put out, even when I don't agree with some of your thoughts. Thank you for all the unintended advice and entirely intended food for thought and, though I doubt I'll ever get to have a cup of tea with you, I just want you to know that I truly admire you and appreciate your channel.

Do you ever just think about how dumb everything is. Like we go through living day by day thinking of now not later and when we do think about what might happen we hope, we dont try to make it happen we just hope it does. It gives life a sense of dullness like why are we doing this, what is the end goal to all of this and why do we keep going. It could be that the brain is wired to keep you going to stay alive like an instinct. But how, if all of this is for nothing and we live our life to do such remarkable things that may never happen why do we keep going. If its going to take hundreds of thousends of years for a new scientific breakethrough to happen like being able to travel to a new planet, to figure out the method of time travel, for the cure to all disease then what gives NOW a sense of meaning as although our technological advancments are remarkible then why does it take so long do something that could be so useless. Why do we as humans not stop and think about why we try to live longer, why we try to build our knowledge and not try to build our mental state and rid of crime and make peace with one enother no matter how different we are physically. But no instead we try every day to build machines that "could creat peace amung humans" is that why our past primates have gone extinc because they couldnt find peace and is that why we some day might go instinct.

Mr. Exurb1a, whatever your name is. You singlehandedly regain a tiny bit of my faith in the world with every video. Well if this guy's in the world, surely it can't be *that* bad, right?

This is one of the best takes on Plato's allegory of the cave ive heard. This is how you represent the importance of knowledge, the human thirst for knowing that which we could never understand and the idea that true knowledge can only be obtained through philosophical reasoning, all in one short story! Also, it makes me wonder what a possible super evolved alien life-form would think of us when we dont even concider life forms below our selves. Great story man!
