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.
however, all you are saying is that we are made of the same physical stuff. you could say that the matter that i am made of was once a cow shit. that does not make me a cow shit. if you are taking the view that we are only what we are physically, than our minds do not matter and kindness has no significance.
however, i think that you would prefer to say, and i hope i am not putting words into your mouth, that we are all individuals with our own feelings. while this may spring from matter, i consider this to be greater than the matter we are made from. i.e., the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
human kindness, then, is a completely different question, which in my opinion was largely shaped by how we evolved as social creatures.
having said that, this question might be better if asked in the bbs posts rather than in a flash movie. points for thought, but doesn't neccecarily belong here.
also, nice music
I wasn't meant to put the concept of morality into the flash, realised it when I uploaded it so will make a whole new section on that, but ye what you say is interesting. I don't really fully accept the view that I pose here since I don't truly understand, its just an idea that sprung to mind. I don't think that we are all the same but I still hold to the belief that we are all part of the same thing, which consists of everything in existence, including space and time. The great thing about humans is that we are always curious so we will always come out with the strangest things :D
I like the matter and feelings part you just wrote, I think many people would agree that the feelings and emotions that we have are far, in our view, superior than the materials that surround us. This is still our view though that's the thing, its our perception of this that makes the imbalance maybe? Pm me if you want to discuss further, would be cool :)
I think about this stuff all the time.
I've thought that same exact thing many times before (I've smoked a lot of weed in the past lol), among other crazy philosophical questions. Of course, this question is only a valid one if you believe in the big bang. Personally I lean more towards the big bang rather than religion because religion doesn't make that much sense. Anyway I'm probably rambling. I voted 2 on this because the flash wasn't good (and this is a flash website) but I also didn't wanna blam it cause it's a good question.
Thanks, ye its all interesting stuff tbh and I wonder if we ever will find out the truth or is it just for us to judge and find it as truthful for ourselves rather than it being true as in valid, because our perceptions of things really do create a whole new world of ideas :) Best thing to do is discuss it.
Well, i suppose you are right about the whole "we are all the same" bit.
Animation was lacking a bit, music was cool.
Thanks dude, will make some more with better animations :D
The music was bloody wonderful, and the message wasn't all that bad, but the animation utterly sucked. The shape tween was used excessively, the background just changed colors, and NOTHING HAPPENED.
Lol, ye I kinda slapped it together in a rush to just get it out there and see what people thought. Gonna spend a lot more time on the next one to get some buttons and maybe a few characters for eye candy :)
I'm glad you enjoyed the music too :D
Feeling sorry for yourself doesn't get you anywhere...
