Albert Einstein: How I See The World - Documentary

Albert Einstein navigated the twilight turf between consciousness and matter for much of his life. He argued that "Man" suffers from an "optical delusion of consciousness" as he "experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest." His cure? "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious," he said. "It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: His eyes are closed." "A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein.
