This is my first in hopefully a series of philosophical questions to ask and I thought I might as well start with one of my own.

The music is done by myself along with the animations but look beyond this and try to criticise the philosophy more so than the flash itself.

If you want to listen to the song again here is the link http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/215843

Thanks for your time.

Edit: The bit rate of the song isn't good at all, if you like it then go have a listen to it seperately.

P.S. Thanks for all the insight and comments, you have got me thinking, will reply to all the posts tomorrow, need to catch up on sleep. Will spend a lot more time animating next time.

Well I thought about it...

And really it made me basically come to the conclusion, is that if we're all the same, why don't bananas taste the same as oranges?

I mean yes you could break it down into the molecules and particles and vitamins and minerals that make up said fruit, and come to the conclusion that it's all the same.
But if you look at the world from a practical standpoint. Things change, people have personalities, fruit has different tastes, etc.

Bears, and bees, obviously all love honey, but I doubt they would have the same good times they have with their own species, plus, I think the bees might sting the bear.

Overall, the reason that we aren't all going to treat people the same way, even if we break us down to the particles, molecules, and minerals, blood samples, diseases, etc. Is because we're all different, while being the same at the same time.
If we treated each other as if we were all the same, life wouldn't be as exciting.

I like your flash skills, and the music was rather soothing.
I'd like to see more from you in the future.

Ye dude, perhaps then it is just the arrangement of these molecules like you said that make us look different to one another. I do agree very much with what you said and am happy that you said it dude :D

Glad you enjoyed the music too, and like you said if everything was treated as being exactly the same fundamentally, life would seem like a clone of itself which would be dull... or would it? dum dum dummmm :P

First off...

Nice music man, it is perfect for the background music in this as it is calming and lets you focus without an overly busy melody, Obviosly though I'm not giving you an eight for music alone, and DEFINITELY not for your drawings or animation, but the question you pose is an interesting one, and I very mnuch agree, my only point of note would be that regardless of the connectivity of the origins of things, we all coexist, man animals, plants, the earth itself, and so on, and to deny the implicit connections between these things would be philoosohical blindness. All things are connected, what affects another may affect you too, and the karmic circle of events is more of a complex scientific formula about the intricate and diverse effect one can have on their world and as a result on themselves than it is a thoelogical view. Great flash, sorry for the long response, but I rarely get the chance to have intellectual conversation anymore, so it was nice.

Ye I'm glad you like the music, I shall be making more :P but the animations were pretty poor I would agree. I kinda just put it together to see what people would think of it and most people seem pleased to see something like this so I will put a lot more effort into the next question that I pose.

Ye I pretty much agree with everything you said there, its all based on balancing the equation. If my mathematics was better maybe I would have been able to pose a theory but that's why I posted this to see what people with skills different to mine would be able to put forward or debate, regarding the theory :D

The Big Bang Theory Put to Good Use

You get a good score just for making me use my brain creatively today. That epiphany alone is worth 20 points.

With this theory in mind, to say "We are all one" doesn't seem so hippie-esque anymore. If this is true, then all existence on earth -- the plants, the animals, the sun and sky, the ocean below -- are all connected by a similar origin. So why is it that only Humans have souls and spirits? Could it be that all of nature is a spirit itself, that is too has a soul? From an evolutionary standpoint, the only differences from Humans and our nearest animal ancestor are a few genetic codes and the development of our brains. So then at what point did Humans evolve into the only ones with souls?

Thank You for that. I'm looking forward to the next one.
Now back to mindless entertainment...


Jewelz123 responds:

Lol thanks, ye that's very interesting, maybe to an extent everything does have a soul, the question of the human soul evokes a whole separate debate itself such as where did it come from, how did it develop, what is it etc.

Maybe the souls are all part of the origin as well or maybe they go beyond even that, I will have to base one of the animations on this question, perhaps you could help me gather some ideas to debate about it?

Okay, but it could use slightly more animation

I liked it, but I think that you should animate more.


Jewelz123 responds:

Thanks, ye will definitely try harder next time

The graphics were better than SOME flashes.

We are all different persona-wise. We may made be from the same stuff, but we are different. Good music, and the question asked was a good one to. But all is fair in the war to survive.


Jewelz123 responds:

Hehe, ye I can see where your coming from, perhaps then it is fair to say that we all came from the big bang (due to the recycling of energy for millions of years) therefore although we came from the same thing we are all different pieces of it. As is a jigsaw piece in a jigsaw puzzle, all the parts are different yet they fit together in a perfect way.
