I don’t know how many of you already watch Vsauce but this new episode really left me with more “awe” than usual, to the extent where I actually felt… high (Dopamine maybe?). Watch this all the way through, the experience really will leave you feeling more than a little in awe, and maybe even drugged, who knows?
EDIT: Does “awe” cause your body to release endorphins? It seems like that might be a thing. Is that a thing? Is it the music, the visuals? What is it that your
body brain reacts to?
EDIT 2: The weird thing is that I am still sitting here trying to figure out how to describe both my physical and psychological state after watching this video: Shivery, trembling, chilled, happy, ecstatic, hopeful, mind opening, worry free (This last one surprised me the most. Shouldn’t even be possible with my life right now!). Does that sound like awe, is it something else? It’s odd to think about the actual physiological effects of just hearing and seeing something that your psychology finds… confusing? Inspiring? Incomprehensible (in a good way)? I don’t know. Also I think the wikipedia page for awe is worth a quick look if anyone is interested:
