    While I don’t believe in reincarnation, I think it’s an absolutely beautiful idea to see everyone on earth as yourself. It brings understanding, empathy and equity to a whole other level.

    Im mad at myself for discovering this video so late. Im on the verge of tears since this is scarily similar to what I've imagined to be the structure of mankind when I was in kindergarten,, even though I did not have the exact words nor enough knowledge to explain it, and that feeling of not being able to organize my thoughts into words have been troubling me since now, but it disappeared as soon as I finished watching this. Thanks for making such an awesome video

      For every minute you dwell on the past or worry about the future, you forget to enjoy the present.
      Enjoy your life now, of course, you should save money for future use, but don't get carried away so you forget to live in the here and now

    I thought about this when I was in middle school but didn’t experience it until college when I had some psychological adventures let’s call them. Not sure if we’re really all just one life, but we’ve definitely lived many and I do believe we’re in an incubation chamber essentially. I’ve even done some past life regressions and have seen moments of my past lives. Scary stuff. Not all of them were great but I think they definitely have an impact on my innate perspective. I think my soul is fairly old at this point despite me being only 24. I think I’m most of the way through my lifecycles but not quite at the end. I still sometimes fall into the traps of mortality like envy and vanity but overall I have become very gentle and empathetic. There is much wisdom left to learn though and there are many I know personally who are much further in their soul journeys. I hope to learn from them and I hope the best for those who are struggling. Good luck on your paths

    I’ve had a situation where I had something like this once. I don’t know what caused it, and I don’t know if it will happen again, but one night when i was in high school, I went to sleep and had such a vivid dream that I lived as another man for 34 years. I grew up in a poor household, dropped out of school to support my family, discovered a love of computers and software, went to community college and got an IT job. Then I met a woman and had a child, there was some family issues and I ended up getting full custody of my daughter. After that I was withdrawn in my love life and only wanted to provide for my daughter. Then I met this amazing woman who fell in love with me, and I ended up falling in love with her as well. We had 2 children together, one boy and one girl. We had a nice house, a good home, loving family… In the end I was driving home from one of my son’s soccer games and was T-boned by a pickup truck who ran a red light. Died on the spot and woke up an instant later. I still carry those memories of a different lifetime with me and I can say they definitely have had an impact on my actions and how I think and feel. I’m grateful I got these experiences but at the same time a high school kid shouldn’t have to mourn the loss of “his” 3 children and loving wife. It really messed me up but i’ve gotten through the pain. Still hurts seeing her eyes and her smile in my mind. But i’ve found the love of my life now and I can finally say that I’m happy, and I’m grateful for the experiences and for finding this video. Sorry for the novel, just needed to get it off my chest after all this time. Great video, really changed my perspective about life.

    This was amazing, I love you. I started to cry of happiness when you said “everyone is you”. finally… someone feels on the same wavelength I do. What a masterpiece. Wonderfully pieced together. I feel that we all share the same consciousness (that of which allows me to have empathy and be able to LIVE as they would, resulting in me acting accordingly). I believe that WE are god. We have the power to give life, and take it. We have the power to give life to ideas that ones self can manifest to be true to themselves. We literally have the power to shape our destiny. Actions or inactions in any form, potentially mold the world around you to act in accordance. Thus changing the path they chose to take.
    We literally ARE god. Every one of us.
    Thank you.
    Or, I should say thank ME.
    I just hope other iterations of me realize the link, and can share compassion and peace with one would desire upon ones self

      @Green Lemon thats crazy because i believe in reincarnation and an infinite multiverse, and i always believed that we are here to learn something (i don't know what) and now it kind of scares me thinking about what happens once we have learned everything?

      It describes almost the same experience I had when I took a heroic dose of mushrooms the first time and met God. I saw myself living millions of lives previously, and told me that I had to come back to live all this countless lives till I learn what I have to learn.
      It is almost scary and makes me shiver how real it felt, never felt something as inmense as that. A human mind cannot comprehend infinity

    This has an incredibly dark lining, in that you are never allowed to remember your past lives until you've destroyed humanity, and you've lived the last human life. Also horribly sad that you’d have to tell that one person the same thing over and over.

    What an amazing video. I could honestly think for hours about the universe being all connected and one large hive mind, how that would affect everything etc. things like this are what expand knowledge and make way for more argument and debate on whether certain things are possibilities, certainties or impossibilities or just entirely up to interpretation. And the idea of us being so much more than ourselves is a great thing to imagine, to not take yourself too seriously because at the end of the day there is so much more than just your feelings in the present moment

      @The Arena Of Ideas Yeah, sadly those suffering will be experienced and expressed by universe too.
      We are just an illusion emerging from the collection of dead things that evolved into complex thinking system.
      Life is just an illusion emerging from the universe to make complex thinking system like brain to function, and thus universe will experience every possibility of consciousness just like you are having right now.

    While I don’t believe in reincarnation, I think it’s an absolutely beautiful idea to see everyone on earth as yourself. It brings understanding, empathy and equity to a whole other level.

      I don't know what it is exactly, but it sounds similar to the New Age, and it's been around with its counterparts many years. It's a hodgepodge of beliefs that include religions that make the individual and the self "god-like" and speak of higher consciousnesseses. Its basically similar to a lot of different beliefs that talk about "one-ness" and manifestation. It could probably be even similar to atheism because in atheism, in order to have a grounding in any belief, you would have to believe in the self to make sense of the world. It is a self-centered religion that has been popular before, and is popular now. So, no this is not unique. There is one faith that is unique and not like any of these beliefs (Buddhism, Hinduism, Atheism, Mormonism, etc.), but it is not this.

      @Abdalla mortes at no point did I call it anything other than a story, nor did I state it as a religious truth my comment is entirely on the art and animation of it. The comment about it being against your religion ,while I respect your views, is neither here nor there. Do you comment on every scifi and fantasy video that they are nonsense because they go against your religion or do you just shut your mouth and move on or maybe just maybe enjoy them for thier entertainment value and then move along

      ​@Doge dude No, death happens every second. Remember, this soul is living every life, so if he is _everyone on Earth all at once,_ he would be in a perpetual state of dying and being born. But I think it's safe to assume a God living in a realm outside of our time, looking in, does not perceive time as we do, so there is no order of events; no 1st, 2nd, 3rd iteration of us he speaks to. He's omnipotent across our time and so he can take care of all actions for all of our lives/deaths at once. While such a concept is impossible for us to understand...the story kinda goes out of its way to lampshade that at 4:30 anyway.

    Whether or not we are all incarnations of the same being, whether or not there's a higher power, or an afterlife, or a greater purpose, the fact is that we're all people going through all sorts of experiences in this one thing we call life, and I feel a sense of comradery in that.

    Amazingly, it also occurred to me recently that we are all (including all the aliens in this universe) one soul that will become a god, but with the difference that the god the soul becomes is the one who created the soul, or that he created himself. Maybe also I thought of that because we are all connected, maybe we are one soul or somehow telepathically.

      ​@Mira Craig fan i had similar thoughts on your concept of time . because time is relative as einstein said. but i see time more like a spiral rather then a circle . did u ever heard of the fractal geometry? it is known as the system of nature. basically it says exactly this.
