This video is a creative poem of various films edited to fit a magnificiently inspirational musical poem by Pat Metheny and his Group, "Dream of the Return". For me, it expresses the "Human Spirit" -- Breath of Conscious Life in its imagery of Wings, Fins and Sails.
“Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abysses nature leads, or you shall learn nothing” T.H. Huxley
“Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.” Heraclitus
“Genius is the ability to see with the eyes of the child and to reason and write about what one sees with the mind and mastery of the adult.” Thomas Szasz
“People hate those who make them feel their own inferiority.” Lord Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield
"The man who asks of freedom anything other than itself is born to be a slave." Alexis de Tocqueville
"First of all we must be. Second we must not be abandoned. Only last must we not be engulfed. All three fears often co-exist, although one or another is usually dominant.” Reuven Bar-Levav
"Long before the child meets, in any full sense, the sublimely heartless and beautiful, the inseductible and implacable cosmos, his responses to it will have been shaped inexorably by the child’s first adaptations to people, including himself. But we wish never to be seduced back to the prison of childhood! Beyond, for some chastened few, is the psychic manhood of science. Science is not religion, because it tries not to see the world in man’s image, and not to worship man’s image projected into the unknown. The scientist knows that he is a man, and would serve men; but even humanism, become a religion, can slip into worshipful arrogance. To be a man means to suffer vicissitudes, and also to contemplate with equanimity, death—-one’s own and the death of all lovers and friends, perhaps the death of our feisty and admirable species…. Small matter: for at one place in this cold cosmos there once lived values, and mind.” Weston LaBarre
