Carl Sagan on Extraterrestrials

26 Jun

An audio recording of Carl Sagan on the topic of extraterrestrials turned into a beautifully vivd animation.

Based on the youtube channel “Blank on Blank” which turns audio recordings of famous figures into psychedelic animations in order to help expand and get the overall message and/or wisdom of the topic across with better success.

ICAROS

Thirty years ago, Marcel left Spain to escape the military service, leaving his family and his social life. After living in a hippie community, he took refuge in the jungle of Costa Rica, where he lives alone, naked and in complete harmony with nature. Marcel discovered himself healer and practice rituals of taking ayahuasca, inducing visions and epiphanies that earned him the epithet of entheogen (Inner God generator). Only a few visitors joined him- here, young women in search of truth, such nymphs listening a shaggy Pan .

In the silence of the jungle…

Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.
