  • Hmm we got a lot of new terms coined by Michael Stevens hisself in this one. He makes some very interesting observations and the terms are well named, but is this a thesis or an educational video? It sounds an awful lot like he's naming ideas based on observation and then "educating" us on them as facts instead of proposing them as ideas to be dissected and debated.

  • When you notice how he changes shirts throughout the video and re-wears some at random points to make you consider the time in between recording and which recording session came first, facilitated by the introduction, which helps you consider the topics of the video better. Nice.

  • Incredible video. This reminds me of a lesson about biology I learned. The perspective of wilderness is so relative to the environment in which a person lives but most importantly the time. It is deppressing to think the amount of biodiversity that used to roam the world, the stories from old people about the sheer amount and exuberance of nature that only got worse and worse with time. A place we would now consider well conserved and with a great amount of biodiversity would seem just like the backyard of someone 200 years ago. Awesome video Michael.
