This is the magnum opus of your KGpost channel. I know this isn't perminant but the impression you leave on us will out live us all. Great work and thanks for inspiring another generation.

ok but what about this thought: what happens to our perception of time when change is so frequent, but the change isnt drastic or "feels" the same. For example we get a new call of duty every year, and sure its a "change" each time, but fundamentally the same each year: some kind of solo play, some kind of survival mode, and a multiplayer mode; More specifically on the multiplayer: fundamentally its the same thing, which is people playing to try and unlock all the camos. Sure each year COD is different, but they are all fundamentally the same, which is why ive grown bored with call of duty. I play them, enjoy the minor changes, then never play the game again. The same with iphones: each year one is released but fundamentally they are the same thing. at what point does so much change happen that we ultimately expect change, and then the rapid change just becomes the standard in which its comparable to living from 0BCE to 1000CE, where sure there are changes, but it feels as if the changes are so normalized that there isnt really significant changes so the entire 1000 years feels the same to each generation? This is essentially a paradox, where the only thing to change the feeling of to much change, would be cessation of change, which would change how time is felt, but also take us to a point where we dont experience change, and so on and so forth it can keep looping

These used to blow my mind, but is it strange now that I understand the concepts before the explanation - the specific terms. It's amazing how different everything is after you've spent enough time learning. Regardless these still expand your perspective.

You are a real thinker Micheal, much deeper than a lot of professors in universities. I can't believe how carefully you are analyzing your thoughts. You are conducting experiments on yourself and never speculate without having anything in your hands. You even came up with a lot of new terminology! I enjoy watching your videos and pausing from time to time to think about what you said. It's confusing and beautiful. Thank you for all this great content. Respect. Unrelated: great sweaters.

can i just say, i've been a fan of Vsauce since the beginning, and I still find myself rewatching the older videos I love how Michael has evolved in so many ways. My favorite is his delivery, the tone (and tone shifts), diction, emphasis, pauses (and dramatic pauses), body language, and so on adapts to the mood of every point he raises. It definitely elevates how well his points will reach the audience, I wish I was this good at conveying my thoughts.

My theory is that we started working, thus felt longer while only remembering all the fun things from before. We are keep repeating dealing n chasing after client & deadline - Thus we tend to find the time go by so fast.

Wow you and I were born on the same year (don't know the month), and I always thought you were way older than me, but if you think about it, Since I've only see you on pre-recorded videos chances are every time I've seen you, you were actually younger than me.
