I just found these two videos this morning and they are truly amazing.
This first one describes in scientific terms the anthropological history of human empathy and how some of us have extended our compassion to other species and the planet.
The second one describes the psychological and social nature of different time zones and cities and how it affects our mentality and health.
Each is ten minutes long but will fly by because of the revolutionary way in which they are presented with visual and verbal information in an easy-to-absorb formula. A brilliant way to appeal to both verbal and visual learners simultaneously.
Do yourself a favor and watch them both. If you dig these half as much as I did, you'll be halfway to China.
