Sleep is Just Death Being Shy

  • Published: 09 September 2019
  • Q: Oi. Where did this video go for a while?
    A: A spurious copyright claim against some of the music used. All seems to be well again. (I mean that specifically. In general terms all is not well. My god, just look where we are etc.)

    “This wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. Either it goes or I do.” – Allegedly Oscar Wilde’s last words.

    I should add that the middle section with the cosmic predictions is entirely the speculations of cosmologists and astronomers of course. Only Cthulhu Himself truly knows how the world will end.

    Music used:

    Clair De Lune –Debussy -

    Pavane – Fauré -

    My stuff:

    The Fifth Science Paperback ► (you may need to change your region accordingly:, etc)

    I also make horrendous music ►

              Nice positive attitude towards death, inspiring and good solace. Too bad, you can't keep up such thinking for long. TRY YOGA.

                                What In the actual fuck did this have to do with any science regarding sleep being shy of death.? It estimates and generational relatives of what I thought
                                Would be something in depth along the lines of why we only produce DMT when asleep and right before death. Thus making hours feel like minutes hence the reasoning behind “lives flashing before eyes” before dying. This was rubbish.

                                            Every time I think of when and how and how many ways the world can and will die, It makes me smile now to think we've achieved such great things with civilization and society, while I am alive I will have fun more then the drunk man, when I i die, I will have come to complete peace knowning what my life has been and how i've lived I loved. Nice vid btw, I like it.

                                                                                    Your videos "Thought on writing" (I think that's the name lol) and "You'll never accomplish nothing significant in your life" (again, might be wrong) gave me more inspiration to keep creating than anything I'd ever seen before. So just... thank you? Even though you'll probably never read this, I'm truly grateful. I'm gonna try to set off and be remarkable ; )
