This is Your Brain On Awesome Thoughts on the world from a student of the mind

Science saved my soul…

Here's one of the more inspiring and insightful videos that I've seen in quite some time.  Truth be told, I know very little about the author or what their background is, but they've clearly got a knack for touching on the beautiful things in life.

One of the things I like best about this video is the fact that they aren't simply trying to bash one way of life without offering an alternative.  You get a real sense of the way in which an understanding of the world has enriched this person's life, something that science offers to all of us if we are willing to investigate enough.

A lot of people seem to think that scientists are obsessed with the minutiae, always waiting to pick apart an argument and spoil everybody's fun.  In reality, scientists are far more than this.  They're individuals who can look at anything, from a leaf to a snapshot of our galaxy, and find something wondrous, amazing, perplexing, and worth studying.

This video truly captures some of the best parts of being an inherently curious person, and it makes me proud to call myself a scientist.
