    Thanks... my brief review:

    #1: I enjoyed not knowing what on earth was going to come next. WTF is happening at 1:36? And at 2:06? (How that that work?!)

    #2: I confess, I got bored with all the early 20th century flying machine contraptions. That's because I did know what was going to come next.

    #3: An astonishing montage of extreme weather and earth change events, some of which look like they belong in a disaster movie. Some of them are really very dramatic.

    Probably water underneath the peatish bog and it is moving down the mountain. Probably flood conditions.

    the second is that the frame rate of the camera is at exactly the same speed as the rotor speed on the helicopter. Some multiple thereof. And you see it change when the copter throttles up, just as it goes out of sight.

    I went back and I looked at the rest of the trees, they are all moving - so it has to be an earthquake...

    At the very end, those are the craziest drywalling stilts I've ever seen.

    I can actually answer this question as I've seen this clip before and the explanation.
    It's the root system of trees holding the ground together while a storm shakes the canopies..

    This world is an incredibly alive, and powerful place. When we get so wrapped up in daily life, it helps to remind us to humble ourselves a little bit, the environment itself is far more powerful than we could ever imagine. It reminds me of that saying... "And the Earth opened up and swallowed them whole".. Those guys in the boat LUCKED OUT to be able to walk away from that situation HAHAHA.

    WOW..

    It never ceases to amaze me when rocks and dirt flow like water. When clouds turn into electricity, and the sky appears more like a dangerous enemy, than a life giving friend.. and people RUN for good reason. Stunning footage, thank you for sharing it..

    We live inside a roiling chemical stew. At just the right temperature. A Very narrow range of temperature. We can exist no where else.

    One end is all solid and frozen (absolute zero) the other is total incoherent chaos. (high thousands to millions of degrees)

    We live as order and disorder, as order and chaos, in a living breathing chemical stew, as a living breathing chemical stew flowing in time, time that is valid here, in this roiling stew.

    It seems normal to you... but we are strange...and odd...and rare. Very much so. All 'life' we know of is like this.

    AI will actually be very different. AI, as we think of it... may be the original intelligence. Who knows.

    Perfection is as much a death as is chaos. So revel in your mess, and order... as life... as we know it - cannot exist without our rise from chaos/stillness... and motion toward order.

    It's mein kampf (my struggle) for everyone. There is nothing else.
