The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck

“Filmmaker, futurist, epiphany addict” Jason Silva has produced a series of videos that combine natural imagery with philosophy.

Silva contacted us after reading our article on a study by Melanie Rudd of Stanford Graduate School of Business on the positive effects on awe . He said his videos were meant to “capture and disseminate AWE itself.” We agreed and published his video on patterns to as a demonstration of the theory.

Still the video was only indirectly related to awe. Now Silva has done one better by devoting an entire video to awe. He writes:

As amazing as that study is, it still leaves us with the question, If AWE is good for us, how exactly can we define it? Well this is exactly what my video WILL BE: a visceral representation and explainer of what the study really means….

    Isn't it a shame that words so articulate as to capture the attention and imagination greater than the awesome video is smothered by background music that is TOO LOUD! To whomever edited this video and added the music: "GET AN EAR!"

    that should of been a good video. but instead of paying attention to what was being said i couldn't help but focus on the bad delivery of the whole thing by that guy! he was trying to come across as enthusiastic, emotional and inspirational but you could just see the whole thing is rehearsed and basically acted out so therefore i feel nothing from listening to him. sorry. just what i think :)
