Video: The contrast between Banality and Awe

Individual Creativity

This is an inspiring and thought provoking video from performance philosopher Jason Silva that explores what awe is and why we need it. Also be sure to check out Silva’s new web series Shots of Awe, which he describes as, “Freestyle philosophy videos that celebrate existential jazz, big questions, technology and science.”

In a nutshell, Silva invites us to recognize that we have a responsibility to “awe” and that shaking up rigid habits and stiff mental models helps us to experience it more often.
