This 22 minute short film features a composite of Obama's speeches re-cut; sustainable technologies and practices; disco music; Buckminster Fuller; economic ideas; and a Native-American Pow-Wow from 1974.
“If success or failure of the planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do… How would I be? What would I do?”
- R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983)
Perhaps it is through the degree and frequency of feeling guilt, excitement or empathy/unity that one can gauge the health of his or her super-ego; which outputs these only because it is the mental faculty that sparks negotiation between one's motivations, and one's larger mental models of reality.
If these feelings are any indication, when one's large scale mental models of reality are inaccurate, exclusive or underdeveloped, the result is a fruitless super-ego; which uses these macro-models to carefully calculate what's best for one's own future.
Greed would be the most obvious example of a weak or disregarded super-ego.
Though the super-ego imposes guilt on our primal parts, it does so only because it feels for the future.
