whats the name of the music
How is it a fact that nothing is impossible? Because nothing in the universe can be created or destroyed. Everything already is. Imagination and creativity is merely energy signals within our minds. Those signals are energy. That energy already existed. And just like how the internet was once impossible, it is now fact because that energy to create it was imagined. Anything that is imagined can be done. We just have to imagine the steps in between where we are now and what we are trying to manifest. #MP
Your work reminds me of film school.. in my Freshman year I was told to forget about blaming sloppy work as being and artist. There is no good art if it's born out of laziness.. out of taking a shotcut or saying .. well I was being creative. That you cannot sacrifice eternity for a moment. I came to love Mary Ellen Mark as my go to for Documentary truth and creativity. We were forbidden to hold a film camera till we spent the year with a view camera and Nikon or Leica with Light Meter. I'd spend hours on my own with old B&W film just eyeballing exposure for each film stock. .. I worked hours upon hours in the Darkroom till I became the first freshman allowed to buy a used Bolex 16mm camera. Took it the summer of my Sophomore year to Northern Ireland in 1972 to shoot the riots and troubles. How else to learn documentary but by doing. Also.. met Philip Glass and Both Robet Moog and others who pushed the limits.
Love your work. And in a way my own work along with injuries received on the job in combat zones to find breath work.. I'd go into Altered States of Consciousness.. such as Rebirthing. Found I resonated to a certain sound which led me to a Korg Synth which led me to create my own music then found images I shot changing from what I saw to the tape . Life is more than what we see.. far more.
Thanks my friend,

A couple quotes I'm thinking of in response:
Jeff Tweedy: "Writers tend to get pretty mystical and metaphysical about these things. You hear people talking about channeling something like it’s coming through you, or being “given” a song. I think that’s all bullshit. It’s obviously coming from you. But it’s your subconscious. The gift, I think, is the ability to be able to go into your subconscious, come back unscathed, and present something from it."
Christopher Hitchens: "I think that we are certainly made in such a way as to be worshipfully inclined, shall we say. That tendency is surely within us. And when people think that there's something awe-inspiring, what they feel is awe–and then what they feel is, 'Well, maybe there's some majesty I should be acknowledging here,' though that isn't at all a logical step."
LOL at all the butt hurt atheists, that last line is open to interpretation, but he didn't literally mean kneel down and start praying. It was a metaphor for aspects of life in general. Ancient Greeks and Indians had multiple gods to represent different aspects of life as well as abstract concepts. Just like there was a god for almost anything (i.e. the sun, moon, war, fertility, sex, wine, partying, chaos, death etc.) you can literally find inspiration in those anythings and let the concepts flow through you.
Picasso has a famous painting believed to be a response to the bombing of Guernica during WWII. He metaphorically channelled and "respected", the gods of war and death amongst other concepts for his painting. Hell, a modern painter might channel the gods of cubism or Picasso himself as their god to channel that energy and influence into new work. It's all a metaphor, anything can be your god or your influence. When 2 Chainz raps about butts, he is metaphorically channeling the god or godess of ass. It's all a figure of speech guys, you can relax. And I'm also sure the guy in the video is an atheist.
These videos are top notch and I know you put time into them but I would really appreciate it if you put the songs name in the description, keep up the good work!
He didnt ruin anything. What hes saying is to Be humble that what we create is us but doesnt necessarily belong to us. Its a flow of something greater than ourselves, something being channeled through our finger tips. Something we cannot put into words, but can only express in art, in wonderment. Keep it up Jason Silva. You are my hero. Finaly someone in the new age who knows what they are talking about and wanting to spread the light to everyone, a Modern philosophier.
Creativity is a state of being where time doesn't exist, as a matter a fact nothing exists but that feeling you get when your painting something or playing an instrument. You know, that feeling of being lifted out of your body. Just floating, levitating. Its a rush of energy igniting every molecule and fiber that makes up of our being. But also extends out, touching other souls. Like a big musical bubble that keeps growing.
You lost me, when you said "respect the gods".. dont bring religon into everything.
legenda em português por favor 🙁
Jean-Philippe Rio-Py – Brave heart << name of the soundtrack in the video.
It amazes me how easy it is for some people to miss the whole point of something by picking it apart. Do you also feel that the grass is too lush or the sky too blue?
Respect the Gods indeed… may they continue to bless us all with the Divine Spark
"Respect the Gods… There's poetry in every moment…" LOVED that line. ANOTHER Awesome Shots of Awe from @Jason Silva !!!!
sounds like bullshit to me.
So say we all.
theres poetry in everything!!!!
Utter hogwash, but great acting.
The Lone Comic TMDefender of Creativity SM
l'll give my subscrption fr tht awsm-2 mins!
I cant even understand what he is saying cause background music is not background, his voice is.
No te olvides de esa gente no sabe ingles 🙁 sub en español por favor.
its really annoying watching so many people making jokes about drugs instead of discussing the actual video, really makes it harder to find actual interesting topics inside the videos
I'm sharing this its so awesome and beautiful!
FUCK THIS GUY IS GOOD
I'm in awe…everytime on your videos ^_^
what song is played in the background?
what does this guy do for a living? does he just make youtube videos? where tf does his inspiration come from? cause anybody can get on YouTube, hire some editors and talk rainbows.. anybody can.. i don't get what he is trying to do for yhe world?
Am I the only person who notices all his thumbnail art is from Imaginary Foundation the clothing company…?
There's someone about this video I love 🙂 the way you explain and put so much towards it :).. Keep up the good work, Your videos are a must watch for everyone. I wanted to keep your videos for myself but I want to share it 🙂 Your inspiring ❤
Holy shit, I literally just thought about creativity like an hour before I watched this video, and the quote by Khalil Gibran came into my mind and I wrote it down, and now it was mentioned in this video!!
wow… youre really inspiring by saying that the creativity actually doesnt come from our ownselves but only a mere path through our consciousness which is analogized by "unique operating system"
and thats blowing my mind.
and for favorite word.. "RESPECT THE GOD"im awed
Thank you Jason Silva!!!!
Humans aren't creators, we are but explorers that process and transcribe that which we discover when we explore.
what are you saying
what did i just watch
Practice what you preach… wish there was a grain of humility in your self indulgent poetic meanderings, which are quite frankly mundane musings dressed up with enthusiasm, inspiring music and articulate prose. Please don't confuse your Russell Brand esqe well articulated declarations with profound wisdom.
Who is responsible for this music ?!!! Where can I find more music like this!!??
what he smoke bruhh
There are no gods. Claiming the source of creativity is the gods, just reduces humans. We are more than capable of creating ourselves. We don't need anything else. Claiming so takes away from the beauty of the human mind that it is capable of such beauty!
Its like the music is telling me I should be inspired by this video and that the content of this video is not inspiring in itsself
anyone knows the name of the music?
that was really good
i like the music.
how can I find pictures and mini videos similar to those put in this video ? @shotsofawe
This is a freakin awesome video! Great words my friend, I really like the way you describe creativity. I'm currently doing a 30 day challenge to see if I can learn to be more creative, and I think you hit the nail on the head. This is exactly what creativity is like. We are transcribing, constantly recording, not creating what's not there. I love it!
God gracious, I love you.
he's on cloud nine without foreign substance
now lets all agree to never be creative again
First of all, Khalil Gibran was a Sufi Muslim and the 'something greater than him or herself' was none other than God to him. I think a lot of was is misinterpreted as creativity, what you describe as regurgitating what we breathe is innovation, not creativity. This misinterpretation completely devalues true creativity. Newton creating calculus to describe why the planets move in an ellipse, rather than perfect circles, Plato creating the dialogue of the cave to describe our reality, truly original things which have never been done before and change life as we know it is creativity. You 'create' something, not reinterpret what someone else has done.
nice ilike it
ya creativity from a higher power god he does not say but good its a gift
What is the song called
OH MY GOD YESSSSSSSS!!! On freaking point. Love your videos. For real chills on each one.
Is this supposed to be a poem?
creativity is a sheet to blind us from the real world reality is the bed the sheet us creativity to blind us from the real world which is "reality"
Respect the Gods! Those words used to cut me on my right hand nearby the river of little human lif but this time. This time was really a different. Guys , because I am seeker now. I had been a christian and believer of shaman even though I am seventeen. Being a seeker is … I hope many people feel the way that I feel. Goodnight , good evening , good afternoon and goodmorning guys , peace for everyone!
Hi Jason, a friend of mine sent me the Existential Bummer video via text and just LOVE what you are doing.The Creativity one, AMAZING! I'm hooked : )Great work my friend.
I have translated this video to Spanish via Amara, could you please make it available to all? http://amara.org/en/videos/oBszzm5R4kIw/es/1767818/
No. Thats love. Just a second hand emotion. Love is like non cognitivism preposition meditation.. nah.. lol. But, truly. "Set them free"
When a video gives you goosebumps by the 20th time you're watching it, it means something. Damn this is beautiful. The music, the sunset, the graphics, your words. Yes there is poetry in every moment, this is one of them
this is pretty cool
Awesome ! Thanks
Well…I'm sorry to be a bummer (not really sorry, I'm just pretending to be polite) creativity is simple, association of preexisting concepts that have been stored in your brain, the combination is creativity. I wanna buy your weed cuz you are delusional (no offense pal, don't sell bullshit to people for distracting them to learn that life isn't magical)
ah u are so awesome!
I love you Jason Silva
@ 51 seconds… "Are we creating something that isn't there, or, are we merely transcribing?" Why not both? What is 'there'? Maybe it's there in the universe but not there for you until you create it. Creativity is creating by transcribing yourself into the universe; transcribing your being into the fabric of reality, connecting it to others to achieve stability and replicating yourself to grow.
My username is very creative, don't you think? :^)
I just need to mention this. You resemble Justin Trudeau . Okay. Bye.
It took you 2:05 minutes to make me fall in love with you. That's the creativity effect right there.
The fact that people in the comments need to smoke to have these kind of thoughts make me sad.
Lets get creative!! 😀
Even tough I'm critical about the content said, I'm in love with what I hear here. Amazing how he speaks
Holy shit i just wanted to know what creativity is cuz lefthanded peeps have more of it or stuff and im a left handed guy and now hes talking bout god and shit and im atheist wtf stop it
he looks like someone on drugs discovering the meaning of life

The Universe brought me here , maybe…Idk SUBSCRIBED either way😀
I'm not a god. Just on amphetamines
Anybody please tell me the right definition of creativity…. 🙏
Be Humble for Nature's imagination is so much more greater than Man's.
I really like to hear what he's saying, but the background music is very loud.. I hope this video would be improved… Just saying 🙂 🙂
Prince ea used this in his student vs teacher video.I honestly thought he actually read the book amd quote it out turns out he just watched some video about creativity
What is it Creativity?
There are people who talk about the creative process with such humility.
You know there is a sense that something is larger than yourself has worked its way through you
to paraphrase Kahlil Gibran’s notion about children. The creative process. creativity comes through but you not from you.
Though it is with you, it belongs not to you, right? and there is that notion that we are the frontal lobes of the universe.
So, when we craft beauty when, when we vocalize, we utter inspiration, what we actually doing, are we creating something that isn't there
Or are we merely transcribing, the notion of inspiration means that we are breathing in and exhaling what we’ve taken in
so, what we merely transcribing the observation of what is we are recording
we are all Cosmonaut Psychonauts and the creative process is what we merely brought back as reporters of the numinous
when we go to Plato’s realm of ideals we are as navigators we are as Dorothy going to Oz
seeing the world from different lens, seeing reality through a different operating system a different set of filters.
and thus, being able to read it differently to see something that others cannot and then bring that back and then share that back
I think that that's what’s happening during creativity and that’s why we should be humble about it, respect the gods, there is poetry in every moment
This piece of art that's the vedio clip along with Jason's uncanny ability to express himself and present his thoughts seamlessly is one form of creativity.
