"because we come from nothing"
Enjoy this wonderful short animated film by Paul Trillo, based on the words of Alan Watts.
"Until There Was Nothing"
...or "How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Black Hole"
Someday this will pass and there will be nothing left. The inevitable spaghettification of it all. That's not something to fear "because we come from nothing" as Alan Watts puts it... and from nothing comes something new. Similarly to a much lesser degree, this project was pieced together repurposing old and unused material to create something new.
Watch full screen, volume up, la-z-boy reclined.
