Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell (1 год назад)
We tried something new this time. Many people seem to feel existential dread when they watch our videos. So we wanted to talk a bit about the world view that is behind our scripts. The philosophy of Kurzgesagt if you want to. Hope you like it! Back to science next video. This video also begins the new Kurzgesagt bi-weekly video cycle. So next video in about two weeks.

JESUS DIED 4 UR SINS (3 месяца назад)
Stop drawing your bucket from broken empty cisterns! You won't find what you are looking for there! Open up your eyes to the lie you are living for. The things you chase after pass away just as you will, the next car, the next house, the next phone, the next videogame is only going to be more emptier than the last they provide a season of pleasure but they can never deliver. You can burry your self in all these things but that doesn't mean one day you won't be confronted by God. And when you are you will be permanently separated from God for your insolence and love for what the world offers. Instead turn to Jesus while you still can tomorrow is never promised. Turn from your idols and turn to Jesus the almighty fountain that produces living water that is satisfying and good. Rest in the one that on your behalf was tortured and nails were driven through His hands and feet. He was posted to a sinners cross and His name was mocked for you. Your sin held Him on that cross and He was the Lamb sacrifice for you, you deserved to be there. God is inviting you to come as you are and enter His family. So turn your face from the emptiness that you find in the world it leads you into blind pleasure and leaves you empty and lost. If you wish to be saved and NOT cast into hell which we all deserve do these things: Believe in Jesus Christ God's one and only Son and that He payed for your sins as a perfect sacrifice, repent of your sin against God, Surrender and put your hope in Him, and invite Him into your life. Pray to God and vow (witness) these things to Him. Jesus is waiting with open arms no mater how bad you messed up he will accept you with open arms. When you pray this prayer and seal your self in Him he will give you the holy spirit as God's personal presence and mighty assistance, the old has gone and you are a new birth in Christ you will still sin but you have an assistant to call on for help; that will guid and assist you on the hard journey. The only ones who will get to heaven are the ones that are saved and stay in that till the day they die. God is a good Shepard that cares for his sheep so much so to die for them. He provides their needs and does for them far more than they could imagine. But those who are not redeemed in Christ will be slaughtered in the fire of hell and have PERMANENT separation from God this is not being mean this is righteous justice.

I think you should consider "do the things that make you feel good" as a process for achieving greater good rather than instant pleasure in hedonist way.
viktor1496 (8 часов назад)
Well don't you derive pleasure from advancing yourself? When i notice i reached a new level of piano play or discovered something significant in my job in research.....it's fulfilling and i feel joy. If i didn't experience those feelings and it would become a drag, i would quit, no doubt.
Lukasz Nadarzynski (8 часов назад)
viktor1496 by greater good I meant personal higher goals like becoming someone you want to be rather than contributing in society
viktor1496 (8 часов назад)
The point is that there is no greater good. Luckily our brains have been wired by evolution to advance the species, so don't worry.

Isn't life easier believing in the creator? Then we have a purpose in life. Without any explanation of afterlife the only purpose is to make us feel good, which doesn't lead to much progress.
viktor1496 (8 часов назад)
"Isn't life easier believing in the creator" It's the easy way out for sure, but i would feel like i'm deluding myself. The universe does not need god or shows any signs there is one, so why believe he exists? If he exists that is a paradox in itself. And so what, the only reason you keep living is for the reward after you die?......that's sad man.
Sam Ronicker (1 день назад)
I'm confused ... you said, "Bonus points if you make the life [sic] of other people better." and "More bonus points if you help build a galactic human empire." What I'm confused about is this ... "bonus points" in what? Some game? Why should I want points? Wasn't the point of this video that there is no *real* point to anything? Then where do these "bonus points" come from. The pun is particularly illustrative here. If there is no point to anything, then there are no points to be had, anywhere, by anyone. This is a terrifying video. I agree with one of the other commenters that this is actually more terrifying than typical religious perspectives.
viktor1496 (5 часов назад)
Sam, who started being condescending? You are the one here calling an entire philosophy "terrifying" based on nothing but his own assumptions. "life is nothing but pain, emptiness, and meaninglessness"...that statement alone shows how deep your ignorance on the topic runs. You don't understand nihilism nor do you TRY to understand it. Nihilism says NOTHING about those things, but you just go and warp the entire philosophy into a strawman you can throw punches at
Sam Ronicker (5 часов назад)
Viktor, the first thing that you should realize is that your condescending tone is not helpful for online discussions. Also, it seems that you failed to read my comment. So, first go back, scroll up, and read that comment. Then come back and read this next one ... I'll wait ... done? Okay, let's continue, maybe with a little less of a sardonic tone eh? Yes, I mentioned Nietzsche, but that was just the context. The problems with Nietzsche's nihilism are the same and my criticism applies no matter what version of nihilism you ascribe to. The one in the video is just as meaningless as absurdist versions. Life has no meaning *full stop*. That idea leads to sickening statements like what you just said. Things like, "someone who derives pleasure from murder, destroying society.... is not bad nor good" are terrifying. These sadistic murdering rapists are eh, okay. They're just people living out their version of making meaning for themselves. There is no good and there is no bad. There is only well, nothing really. The video embraces an optimistic view, but there's no there there. It's just a veneer of optimism smeared over an empty meaningless void. It, and apparently you, are saying, "life is nothing but pain, emptiness, and meaninglessness, but let's put a happy face on and try our best to be good, because reasons." There is no point system as I commented originally, there are no "bonus points" for making others' lives better or being a productive member of society. If anything the meaninglessness of life should drive people to seek out pleasure and only pleasure. Meaninglessness is all pervasive and so even that subjective meaning that you create for yourself, is itself meaningless. "Creating your own meaning," is itself meaningless.
viktor1496 (8 часов назад)
If you want to criticise nihilism you have to criticise the idea itself that there is no meaning. And yes, someone who derives pleasure from murder, destroying society.... is not bad nor good. Since there is no objective meaning there are also no objective morals. Each and every human has their own set of morals shaped by their life and society. What we call "good" is merely what the majority THINKS is good. Go back some hundred years and ask people on the street if slavery is bad....yeah
viktor1496 (8 часов назад)
Sam, the first thing that you should realise is that nietsche's nihilism is not the one form of nihilism. Again, nihilism is merely the philosophy that there is no OBJECTIVE meaning to life or the universe. It does not say anything about how to handle that little piece of information. Some advocate for creating your own meaning like existentialism, others advocate that looking for meaning in itself is nonsensical since there is none like absurdism....etc. You can't just all throw them on a pile and criticise it
Sam Ronicker (11 часов назад)
I was actually just listening to a lecture by Jordan Peterson where he was talking about nihilism. He was specifically speaking about Nietzsche's nihilism and how it applied to various ideologues in the early twentieth century, but the result is basically the same. I can't quote him exactly, but this is the gist. //If life is meaningless and meaninglessness is pain, then why not benevolently put others out of their misery?// Life is meaningless so what does it matter if I end your life? It was meaningless. You are advocating for building your own meaning, but why should I accept your built-up meaning? The problem isn't as you said, "If advancing society doesn't make you feel fulfilled....damn that's sad my man," the problem is, if someone gets meaning out of destroying society, then they're good. They're doing what this video (and MANY others) are encouraging. The psychopath might find deep and abiding meaning out of torturing innocents and we should root them out of society because they're bad for society, but they're not doing anything wrong. They're simply following their meaning. They're creating their "own subjective meaning." You seem to want to encourage my "natural impulses" to empathy, but what about the natural impulse to have sex with any and every attractive female? The sexual predator is merely acting out his/her natural impulse to procreate and follow the biological imperative to pass on his/her genes in successive generations. Of course, we also want to root those out of society because they're bad for stable society, but again, they're not doing anything wrong. They're following their meaning. They're doing exactly what this video (and you) seem to be encouraging, they're making their own meaning. So, yes, this is terrifying.

The only thing I have a problem with in this video is the statement at 5:46 "Do the things that make you feel good, you get to decide whatever this means for you." At first glance its a nice thing to say to someone, but thinking about it more deeply makes you realize that it is not that good of a thing to say. Why? Well what if one person is a serial killer and feels good about it? What if that is what gives them meaning in life? What if someone feels good about themselves by bullying and in general being a complete dick to others? What if that is what gives them meaning in life? Are we just gonna allow those people to live their own life because they have the right to do so? Well looking at that statement above and putting that into these people's lifes the answer is yes. But what does that say about us "good and normal people"? Are we "good and normal people" if we let people die for one single person's fulfillment? Well I think, or I hope rather, that we can all agree that murdering and/or bullying people is a very bad thing to do. So this statement: "Do the things that make you feel good, you get to decide whatever this means for you." just doesn't really work in practice. (Of course this is based my own opinion and morals so if you want to prove me wrong then go right ahead, you do have the legal right to speak whatever opinion you have)
Image 13137 (1 день назад)
True that.
viktor1496 (1 день назад)
Yes, you are right, but there is a BIG difference between saying you should do what makes you feel good, and allowing what is bad for the majority. Sure there are psychopaths that derive pleasure from murder for example, but the majority does not. Since we also don't want to fear for our lives the majority acts and outlawed murder with severe punishment. What is "right" is merely the venn diagram where the majority of people overlap :)

It’s extremely scary to know how much time u have left. Right now I’m 14 years old if you think about it I’m still very young but have not much time left I sleep 1/3 of my life and spend a lot time in school and on my phone so if u think about it I don’t have much time left to do all the things I want to do in my life of course I have big dreams and because my biggest dream is to get a astronaut so the time I spend on my job is not wasted but I still have so many things to do performing a H.A.L.O jump, meet the love of my life and much more. I just realized there are so many things to do and I have to start now with living my dream. You never die as long as people remember u in a good way u have to change the world live your dream make other people happy and give your best there is only one chance to give you best and even if u already wasted some time and made mistakes there is still a way to change tour life and change the world but if u want to do it u have to start now.😃

I'm impressed by the number of comment who got it wrong or want to rally people to their cause. It's just a question of imagination. I can imagine why you are weak in front of these kind of questions, I can understand why you feel like this video is dangerous, and I can understand why you don't see any positive aspect or how impossible it is to think like that. But now I ask you to imagine back. I totally adhere to the philosophy behind that video. Nothing matters, nothing has a purpose, and I feel good about that. If life is meaningless, I could kill myself in that instant, or I could not. I choose not to do it and why ? Because I want to experience. And there's no logic behind that. At the end i'll be dead. At the end, even if I kill people in my life, or even trigger a world war, it doesn't matter. I want to live forever to see this universe evolve, to gain knowledge, even if it has no meaning. And there's nothing wrong about it. People have been experiencing and killing all the way even still today, and it never changed anything. The only valid shot I get to that is : The universe is like that. What if we changed it ? Life is an experiment, do it yourself, find a purpose if you want but never forget : there's none. And that is truly liberating.

Why does the universe exist why did we be created why are we so complex in many ways why can we think
Hilmar Zonneveld (4 дня назад)
+Hep Hopa No, it's not. See, there is a problem here. THE VERY QUESTION of a "why" (the reason, I guess) implies that there IS a "why" - a reason. What if there is none? Actually, the question may need to be clarified further. When asking "why", it MAY refer to a PURPOSE. Perhaps there simply is no purpose. Asking "why" may also have other meanings, of course. For instance, "Why does Earth exist?" - Well, because gravity pulled some stuff together. In this case, we are not talking about a purpose. It's just the way physics works. Asking "What is the purpose" (IF that was the intended meaning of the question) is like asking "Who created the Universe?" - Wrong question, really, because we don't know whether it was created - and whether there was a "who".
Hep Hopa (4 дня назад)
Hilmar Zonneveld It is not an answer, but a way to avoid it.
Hilmar Zonneveld (4 дня назад)
​+Hep Hopa "There is no reason" may or not be the CORRECT answer - but it most certainly is an answer.
Hep Hopa (5 дней назад)
Darts NToys This video does NOT answer to any of your "why". It just denies your questions saying that there is no "why". So it is far from beeing an answer.
Hilmar Zonneveld (6 дней назад)
_Why does the universe exist_ - Nobody really knows. The question may need to be clarified... If by "why" you mean "for what purpose", PERHAPS THERE IS NO PURPOSE. _why did we be created..._ - I see no reason to believe that were, indeed, created. _why are we so complex in many ways why can we think_ - There seems to be a natural tendency for complexity to arise out of simplicity. That's called "emergence" - you may want to read up on it; it's a fascinating topic.

Hep Hopa (7 дней назад)
Dylan Richardson I only say that an ethical system needs common values and beliefs, otherwise it does not work. A society needs an ethical system which is not too heavy (some air in there :-) and not too liberal (do whatever plees you). While some decades ago we were in a system which was too conservative, nowadays reaction is to get into a secular libertarian approach where you do whatever you want if it fits what police says. Kinda "it is forbidden to forbid". And by the way as the police does not represent any authority anymore, if you can do stuff they do not want and they do not catch you, it is so cool. This does not work and this is why young people who need clear and structured ethics join preachers giving them a precise schedule of todos per day : you will pray 5 times there there and there, you will do that and not that, etc... And people are happy to find back some structure ... and slowly go towards a prison for their minds. So a society where all is cool, all people are beautifull, all families are the same, every guy is equal to anybody else, and you can do whatever you want if you are not bad to the others because otherwise the police is there is a dead end. The same as a society where all is too much structured as were some of the western societies in the 50s for example.
Hep Hopa (7 дней назад)
Hilmar Zonneveld "moral system will be able to completely solve the fact that a small minority of people will have extreme criminal tendencies" >> Indeed. But what happens now is that all is ready to tell them : well your truth is as good as ours, we just jusdge you based on the laws of today. But maybe at some other time and culture what you do would be great. However in the meanwhile you will be executed :-) It is not an example for others when showing that there is no shared value, but only the current law. A society holds when you believe in common values, not when you are afraid by the police. And this is the point : no common values, everybody has the truth.
Hep Hopa (7 дней назад)
Hilmar Zonneveld Well, if no absolute, no reference. So what is good and bad ? What you percieve to be good is part of the thing of course based on natural revelation. But if there is no reference, than all is relative. And from this point on, nothing works anymore.
Dylan Richardson (7 дней назад)
+Hep Hopa , Hilmar doesn't mean that a universal ethical code shouldn't exist, he just means that it can't, at least not as we are in our present condition. We all have disparate subjective experiences. This results in us seeking different answers, in other words developing different systems of morality. We can and should aspire to reach a better moral code as a unified whole, but the reality is that we are splintered into so many nationalities, ethnicites, religions and etc, that unless we abandon our obsession with these distinctions and come to understand ourselves through our common humanity, we will be unable to completely agree on a universal ethical code. Whenever we do attempt to change a person's sense of morality it is through education. Our only path to a more moral future is through a secular education.

God... a being whose only definition is that he is beyond man's power to conceive. -Ayn Rand Musab, you essentially find that you're unable to explain some things. A rational scientific approach would theorize. You however, don't. You say I don't know what B is to explain what A is (causation), so I must create a B to explain all the A's. One of the reasons you create the idea of God, is because you cannot bear uncertainty.

Yurie Terrado Well presenting atheist existentialism as being an "optimistic nihilism" while it is just a poor fix of nihilism ...

This teachings doesn't work for people that have certainty not in atheism but theism. If an owner of the world exists, we can't live and ignore him. If an owner exists, then life has a finality. if yes, then surely a life or phase or something after-death exists. If yes, then surely our deeds have consequences on it. At this point, I don't know how we can't choose a religion, and believe in a day of judgement, where we can continue to suffer or to have pleasure (hell or paradise). So, it's only for atheists this video. By the way, in the video they say "there's probably nothing after life" or something like this. If we don't have certainty, why then should we live as there's nothing ? Will all the respect that I have for the atheist view of the existence (i'm a fan of epicurus and lucretius).

Because if there is a god (and I believe that God exists) he's the owner of your own existence.

Not having the same opinion than you means I can't think with reason and adopt truth when it comes to me ? Common ! 4- Happiness is freedom. The only and true freedom. We seek freedom here on earth cuz it makes us happy. If slavery made us more happier, we would choose slavery. Thanks for the debate :)

This was disappointing. I really feel like you didn't honestly and unbiasedly give my arguments their fair due. Because if you had, then you yourself could see what i would reply to each of these answers. I really tried thinking you were someone who would change his views if reasoning led him to. I'm going to precommit myself into not replying to any comments further to avoid a whole youtube debate. But i will address one point of yours that was a question- 4. Yes, i very much would. You could sprinkle man with all the pleasures of the world and take away all his pains and you would still not get him to relinquish what he really wants to do- to choose. Of course rebellion against a God would not really do anything actually to harm him and destroy me, but i REALLY would rather die free than live a slave to something I essentially think wrong. The consequences are of no concern, i welcome suffering and denounce pleasure if it comes against my principals (not just on a philosophy exam, this is how i really do live my life). Note that I don't claim this as an argument or a proof, but only my own humble opinion.

1- I already choosen which religion to believe in. I don't have eternity to do so. Let's not forget the "feeling" side of the matter. I also feel that my religion is true, I can't change it. 2- The worst scenario possible (in which we have our word to say in it) is the montheist point of view of after life. I can't imagine something worst than that (in fact, like i've said, there's for me an after life, even if religion are false), the existence of a day of judgement where we can avoir a long punishement for our deeds here in life. Yes, maybe God wants us to do jokes, but i'm in a situation where I have to make a choice, not just say that "there's infinite possibilities, i'll just have fun and we'll see after life" ! 3- Didn't modify my religion. I just have disagreement in few interpretations. The whole thing is the same than what my parents believe (after life; hell and paradise; etc etc...). 4- The argument that we hear a lot where non believers say that they prefer eternal damnation than worshipping a "bad" god. You seriously don't mean it right ? I mean, if there's an owner of this existence (when I say owner i mean it), you won't seriously try and rebel against him right ? You would choose eternal damnation (suffering for eternity !) than worshipping him and be happy ? (we exist as beings just to be happy and to avoid suffering). 5- talking about whether God is evil or good. I believe he's neither good or evil, he's just doing whatever he wants cuz he's the owner (again, i mean it when I say he's the owner!) of existence itself. Saying he's good or evil (i believe of course that he's good cuz he says so in my religion) means that we are considering ourselves equal to him, so we give ourselves the "right" to "judge" him. Are we seriously gonna "judge" the owner of the existence itself ? 6- It's God, as the owner of the universe, that decides the meaning of life, if he's gonna judge us about this or this, not we who decide what to do in life. 7- I said i won't regret life if it's the void that awaits us, not if i'm in hell (hell = total suffering for a centuries at least) 8- "Maybe some things should be done to make the present better, rather than a future that only exists in our imagination". Believing that good deeds helps us to avoid hell, to enter paradise and to have salvation is what my religion promotes. Look for the famous book of Max Weber about the protestant ethics and the spirit of capitalism (i'm not a christian, i'm a muslim by the way), you will understand how for example such beliefs help us make a better world. 9- well, when I say that existence is hell, I mean the existence where there's a God that deliberately created suffering. If I was an atheist, I think I would be happy just because there's no hell after life. I'll just enjoy life cuz I don't have anything to loose by doing so (no judgement day). 10- I don't believe in afterlife because I fear life, or the abscence of after life. I do so because I fear the existence of a horrible after life instead. I don't believe in God because I fear the abscence of a transcandent sense of existence, but because I reached the conclusion that he exists. If I wasn't sure that he exists, i wouldn't believe in him. Thanks for your messages :)

I had no idea my own personal philosophy on existing has a name. Beautiful, powerful video. I am quite looking forward to my next existential crisis, though!
Hep Hopa (8 дней назад)
tg93williams Well, optiistic nihilism does not exist. The real name is atheist existentialism. And indeed it only lasts until the next crisis when you can try transhumanism. After that all materialist systems will be useless for your crisis :-)

Lmao..... This is just existentialism?? "Optimistic nihilism" is a very unnecessary rebranding and a joke in the philosophy community
