    Inspired by Brian Cox's TED Talk: Why we need the explorers, where he quotes Carl Sagan. "Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it, everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you've ever heard of, every human being who ever was lived out their lives. The aggregates of joy and suffering thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there, on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam. It's been said that astronomy's a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known." Music by mindthings "Rebirth"

          Made for the Amber Archive Project, where art and (this) film (in flash drive form) will be encased in amber and buried to create a time capsule. (Honestly!) Inspired by Carl Sagan's "Voyager Project" of the 70s, this video is a tongue-in-cheek, funny and thought-provoking look at communicating with the future and the impossibility of "Now".

                The Great Library of Alexandria was a library that existed in the 3rd century B.C.E in Egypt, Alexandra under the rule of the Ptolemaic dynasty (Egypt's Hellenic period). It was filled with every bit of information about the known world at the time, which included Astronomy, Philosophy, the Human body, Medicine and many many more. Many famous philosophers came to the library to study the mysteries of the natural world and figure out the many questions that we face in life. It was said that in the 4th century A.D philosophers had almost discovered the mystery of why objects always fall to the ground and not float away (Gravity). The circumference of the earth was discovered at the library and also it became a known fact that the world was round and not flat.

                    Carl Sagan's 1980 documentary series 'Cosmos' was really inspirational to me as a kid. It had an excellent soundtrack too. I wrote this piece of music after re-watching a few episodes recently and then added the visuals. It was a dream.
