What, you ask, was the beginning of it all?

And it is this...
"Existence" that multiplied itself
for sheer delight of being and plunged
into numberless trillions of forms.
So that it might find "itself"

Thoroughly enjoyed this documentary. I feel stunned, thrilled, and filled with a sense of awe and wonder.

this is so amazing ! It explains the whole concept very easily by the way they presented it. And David Gilmore of Pink Floyd played guitar
for the score :) Made it a lot of fun , Thank a bunch for sharing !!

So much of how the universe works makes more sense to me now. I think this is the most amazing documentary I've ever seen.

How about a 3 dimensional mandelbrot set and i am also thinking how it can be tied with the Torus. Nassim would love tihis documentary.

Thank you for posting Gaia.

Also check out Wisdom Teachings. I think David goes over the Mandelbrot set on a few episodes.
