Jason Silva’s most recent video on Ontological Design is a bit of a mind-bender that asks us to consider the way in which the things we create in turn re-creates us.  He talks about the ways our environment molds and shapes us; that everything we design is designing us back like Escher’s drawing of hands drawing each other in an eternal feedback loop.
Silva makes an important inquiry: How might we create better feedback loops between ourselves and that which we create so we can upgrade how we function? He doesn’t really answer the question. But the way he asks it makes this video a creation that does indeed affect us, instilling a sense of reverence and awe.
