Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell

Videos explaining things with optimistic nihilism.

We are a small team who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

Currently we make one animation video per month. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook to get notified when a new one comes out.

    For some time I have also suspected that, since it is the most obvious, based on scientifically proven findings. (Google translated from the german version) - When people have lost their memories (e.g. in an accident), they have become completely different people. So who we are is largely based on what we have experienced, and when these memories are erased, one becomes a different person. This of course also means that if you copy a person 1: 1, with all his memories, you would have 2 identical but independent consciousnesses. - Sensory perceptions are filtered by our brain and related memories are added to it (like the memory of a person with a certain smell). Only then do we perceive it and make decisions based on it. This whole process of information processing, information evaluation and decision-making is so complex that you inevitably have to become aware of yourself. So we are "only" highly complex meat machines. Or we are a conscious part of a highly complex meat machine. If we were to create a highly complex, adaptive AI, it would also develop a consciousness. Becoming aware of yourself is "only" the result of complexity and the ability to learn. Be it machines, humans or other animals. - All cells in the body renew themselves. Without exception. So after some time we have "died", as in all old cells have died and "reborn", as in all cells have been renewed. Of course this is a smooth transition. But even though memories belong to a body that has long ceased to exist, we see them as part of us. So whether the memories belong to our present body makes no difference to our present consciousness. In childhood memories, we think we really lived through this. Even with memories that have been extremely distorted by trauma, we think that we have experienced it exactly that way, and that the consciousness at this fictional event / point in time was ours. If we were to send our consciousness 10 years into the future or into the past, it should not make any difference to the consciousness, it would still feel real. If our memories were exchanged, it would make just as little difference. - There are people with different personalities. So people with severe depressive phases have a depressed and a normal self. This distinction comes from the completely otherness of information processing and interpretation of the depressed ego, which the normal ego would never make or even consider (Disclaimer: Depression is more than "being sad", it is an illness that leads to the distortion of the Perception leads and has many faces). However, since both have the same memories, both I's are also real to consciousness. So if we were to change bodies, we would not even notice it if we did not take / keep part of our old memory. And there is my guess. We just don't get it mine. If we are absolutely certain that we lived through our childhood even though all we were left with is a distorted memory of a body that no longer exists, what makes life in another body illogical? But only that we have no memories of life. But the child's body and the consciousness associated with it no longer exist, only because we have memories of it does it become more real for us. Basically our consciousness dies in every new moment and is recreated as new information is presented and new thoughts are formed. Only by remembering previous moments and painting out future events do we get a feeling of a continuous life. "And why don't you think that the consciousness would cease to exist once the body dies and the consciousness no longer receives any new information?" That is also possible, but since I am absolutely sure with memories from childhood that "I" have experienced them with my consciousness, although this body has not existed for a long time and the memories are certainly flawed; "my" consciousness seems to still exist. Whether the consciousness is part of a body that emerged from the body of my childhood days / memories, or whether the consciousness belongs to a completely foreign body, should make no difference. I should experience both in the same way. Just with other memories.

    This is a pharma ad. And as every single "sponsored" video in this channel, it completely avoid talking about the cons or risks of whatever is chilled for. A critical point here, which was mentioned, is that bacteriophage evolve. And while in the body after killing their "prey", they can evolve to sitch onto a more available food in their environment - humans. This would possible create new human viruses.

    It’s possible that there is no other life out in the universe. Think how rare earth must be, you need water, an atmosphere, distance from the sun but not too far, you need a planet like Jupiter to protect you from meteors, I could go on and on. We are quite possibly alone.

    If 2 countries are armed with nukes, and it's absolutely certain that the 1st has just launched everything, it is still just as immoral and unconscionable for the 2nd to launch back. Taking the hit means you die. Launching back only doubles the death. Everyone still loses.

    African tribes like Himba, and Masai eat meat and have been doing so for thousands of years. These are only 2 tribes in Africa out of the many. How about the Inuit? How can one who lives in the north grow vegetables during the winter? We need meat, not from the the large corporations. Our ancestors have been eating meat for millions of years. Without red meat you will lack 50 vitamins, and minerals. I am from the Mediterranean, we do eat meat and whole grains. Although many portrait our diet to be free from meat. Life is survival, a lion will not think twice when it sees a gazelle.
