Best viewed at full screen. Go to settings and choose your resolution. If you choose closed captions it shows some titles of what you're looking at. Then go to 'Options', adjust font size to 50% and background opacity to 0 (zero).

Personally, I think the title is incorrect. The magnitude is very possible and more. :-)

Wonderful animation and extremely impressive to relegate the foolish hubris of humanity to the dust pile but there are theoretical speculations that humans, who were developed by evolution for fundamental survival, may have far more to think about with ideas involving spaces and times much more varied than our sense input can accommodate. My curiosities have been sparked by an unexplained personal experience which suggests we have barely scratched the surface in this area.

Information beyond the sensorium. I've had moments being aware of it, outside the periphery. But as you note it seems undefinable because of it being more varied than can be accommodated. It's like saying I know about the universe from scientific observations but I don't know it directly. Nonetheless, the sensing of it can be interesting enough and sets one to thinking about possibilities which are often inspiring and mysterious.



If I may ask, what was the personal experience you mentioned?
