While you do have an interesting philosophy, you aren't really a philosopher/theoretician. On the other hand, this isn't as preposterous as Spirit Science.
Visuals: Look, I don't believe that everything should have perfect animation with high-bitrate music, but enough to get the point across. However, there was hardly any character animation except for one or two scenes. Of course, I really like your layouts. If you're going do a weekly/monthy flash series, you better be really good and quick in order to make it convincing.
Sound: I really like the voices and the music on this, so no problems here.
Content: The only reason I watched this just so I can critique it. While you do have an interesting philosophy, decent direction, and a nice pace; it wasn't much to offer. I mean I appreciate that you're trying to prove that NG has potential beyond entertainment, but the way you're going about this seems uncompelling. I've seen flash movies with this kind of filesize that had much more in terms of content. In other words, this feels like a step up from Chester Kwan and Marsoupskin.
-Nice layouts and voices
-Somewhat interesting philosophy
-Hardly any animation for a four meg flash.
Overall: Jordan, I hope you put more thought into the animation next time unless you want to end up like certain has-beens & Never-will-bes? Here's a six from me.
