People Are Awesome

  1. Yes!!! The video is very funny!

    Much earlier I believed that ‘being human is awesome’ could be the ‘cognition’, the EP of OT3. I still don’t know whether it is so, or part of it. What I know is that the reason I have come to the ‘Planet’ is to experience what it means to be ‘human’ – out of sincere curiousity. I love this ‘process’ and being ‘human’ is awesome.

    Great, Geir! Also, all other forms of Life are awesome. All ‘forms’ ‘beyond’ human life too…that’s another ‘journey’…

    What about you? Skate-boarding, parachuting, karate, dancing…..so YOU?
    What about your ‘buttocks’? (joking) The girl’s look pretty nice in the video.

    1. Hi Marianne! The “buttocks” are fake. And the girl is transvestite. So, we are not tempted πŸ™‚ (men’s point of view). πŸ™‚

      1. Dragos, here’s a test for how liberal or conservative you are. What’s your take on this:

        1. hahaha nice video πŸ™‚ Well…I have a liberal behaviour but politically I will always be conservative πŸ™‚

            1. Wait a minute! πŸ™‚ Liberal in Europe means right, liberal in America means left. To be more precise, I will always use Washington Post as toilet paper πŸ™‚

            2. LOL about the Washington Post. But I was referring to your “liberal behavior” as you called it. And in any case, didn’t you once admit you liked Obama? πŸ˜‰

            3. He’s a bit Marxist, that’s his problem. And too soft with Russians. Otherwise, he has definitely a lot of charisma. A coherent, polite and civilized speech, very educated. But in many respects he has what we call in Eastern Europe “a wooden language”: speeking much without saying something in particular πŸ™‚

            4. Yes, I’ve heard these criticisms. But overall I think he’s smart and right about most things. although I’ll admit I don’t know that much about politics and I’m smart enough not to get too deep into political discussions. Especially with people like you, who are into it. πŸ˜‰

            5. This is not a blog of politics and myself always kept the boundary when inserting politics in comments πŸ™‚

            6. Yes, I’ve observed your good judgement in that. Otherwise I wouldn’t have had the audacity to bring the subject up! πŸ˜€

  2. For me, the message of this video is that people are awesome if they are physically vigorous and/or attractive or if they display some kind of extraordinary or risky skill or physical activity.

    It communicates immediately that the vast majority of people in the world are not awesome. And that includes me. I no longer have the juicy buttocks of 18 and even if I did, I am not so sure I would want the attention of lewd old men salivating over my image as they try to raise that flagging libido. I guarantee you that the second the young studs see the wrinkles on my forehead, they no longer find me awesome. I don’t ski death defying slopes, and I don’t jump over cliffs. Never have. Never will. I fricking hate sports, always have. But I can write poetry and sing songs that will leave you speechless with emotion.

    I am one of the stupid people who thought that choosing an ideology mattered. I am one of the stupid people who thought that tending to my own fucked up behavior could make a difference. I am one of the stupid people who thought that there could be such a thing as truthful group, living with principles that could bring prosperity and hope and compassion to all, not just to the entitled few seeking to aggrandize their own awesomeness.

    I feel thoroughly bashed these days. I was once proud of my own efforts to make and create something a little better in the world. I thought any effort in that direction was awesome. The result of participating in these blogs is that I no longer have any pride in what I worked towards for most of my life. Only disgust remains. And sadly, I don’t have my entire physical life ahead of me now. And even if I did, I am not so sure I would spend it learning to kick box or lift weights.

    1. It should still be possible to marvel at what incredible feats people are capable of doing.

      Making a video of people sitting and “glowing with theta” would hardly be worth the effort.

      1. If you could make a camera that accurately captured a person’s ‘theta glow’ that would be news worthy and worth it. Photos of people would look like Eastern Orthodox icons.

          1. Well Chris could you post a photo of one glowing like that? Or is your camera adequate to the task? Maybe you and Geir could develop a bosonic camera that will capture that glow…..

            In fact I have it on good authority those guys glowing in the icons had been drinking some kind of special wine…..

            So perhaps exteriorization by chemical means is not that original…… but having a camera that could capture it would be special.

    2. Maria
      I wish I could give you back just a little from the heartfelt love, wisdom and care you have been sharing here. That is that shines….the rest…comes and goes….

            1. Yes, the video works fine. Your own computer is probably what needs to have the Adobe Flash activated.

            2. It’s perfect for me too…Marildi’s right (as (almost πŸ™‚ ) always), you need Flash.

            3. Dragos
              ‘you need Flash’ Haha….I don’t, only the computer. The joke in it is that I decided two days ago that I would be less on the Net. So….it ‘got angry’ with me first, then started to ‘follow’ my request….(just kidding, of course).

    3. Maria my dear, you are a truly awesome person, besides all the body stuff only some can do, and you are appreciated and read with vigor, that’s for sure! πŸ™‚

      Fun watching all the awesome people on the video having fun, thanks Isene.

    4. Oh Maria. But I have pride in what you worked for most of your life! You have summed it up so perfectly. There are so many songs in your post, I could not choose just one. So here’s one that is completely non seq but is one of my all-time favorites.

  3. People are INDEED awesome…I am marveled at what some can do with their bodies. I’m amazed if I can make it to my car without dropping my cell phone!

    Can’t help but think how being inside the church doesn’t allow you to look at, or appreciate, how awesome some people truly are.

    Geir, this site is awesome, so thanks for keeping it here

  4. This OP was a reminder to all that the game is living life. The variety shown of those living life in the present time, for enjoyment, for fun and with less seriousness is always good to observe. One clip I found several years ago and always have enjoyed as a reminder to slow down and enjoy the moment. Tis this one:
