"The point of this video is not that death is something to be feared. Trying to understand death is infuriating more than frightening. What can be frightening is how humans compress time in their brains, making it all seem ultimately just a journey with the only highlights being the start and end points."

-This video gave me goosebumps. It's depressing to realize life seems totally meaningless, but on the other hand it makes me appreciate life much more.

Sorry, all I can focus on in this video is how his life seems to revolve far too tightly around the x-box and new games.  I wonder if he was really in 7th grade until he was 14.

Well I'm a gamer and this guy I'm subscribed to is a game commentator (basically he makes commentaries for video game footage, either discussing the footage or a totally irrelevant topic/issue). Most of his subscribers are gamers so that is why he refers to video games so much.

And excuse my geekiness lol sorry if this video doesn't apply to all of you that don't play video games :p

And yes the video is supposed to be just black because I assume the director just wanted to talk about death and emphasize its emptiness. Usually this commentator has gameplay footage in the background of his videos even if he is talking about an irrelevant topic.
