    This is truly a visual meditation. I feel so calmed and relaxed, reflective and ecstatic; contemplating Emerson’s poetry, soothed by Faure’s Requiem, tantalized with powerful imagery. Thank you for sharing.

    I’m left without adequate words to describe how uplifted and inspired I feel watching this video.

    Discovered in the 21stC: The Underlying Law of Nature.

    The underlying law of nature may be the world’s most useful, profitable and encouraging knowledge.

    The top 3 General Characteristics of The underlying law of nature are:

    #1. The Way of All Things

    #2. The Basis of All Laws and Principles

    #3. The Basis of All Health, Growth, Efficacy and Efficiency

    Google it–as a start.

    The empirical process for identifying the underlying law of nature was discovered in 2008.

    Soon, we may all do so.

    This is so wonderful..This is how I want to live. I’m disconnecting from materialism, social and luxury stratification. I feel a deeper sense of connectedness with nature and my fellow humans due in part to my exposure to Emerson and Thoreau..I sincerely thank you for posting this and it was an excellent music choice…Thanx!

    transcendentalism is anti american because it is anti reason

  10. Yuri SarkApr 29, 2013

    excellent. difficult to read in some parts—contrast etc..

  11. Ashiman12Apr 29, 2013

    Yes, the ideas of Transcendentalism, as expounded by Emerson, Thoreau, and later by Whitman, spring from and reflect the brighter side of the American spirit, but their profundity expends beyond our nation’s borders.

    Gabriel Faure´s “Requiem”. A piece well worth buying. Sheer beauty.

    where and who is this music from ? Its very beautiful

    Thanks for you kind words, my friend. Great to hear about how the landscape of the two great men still has the power to inspire the American people of today. The more I think about Emerson, the more I important I realize he is to all you good people and to your great nation. His words of wisdom may help to save us once again.

    I’ve always thought transcendentalism has a distinctly American appeal. Or maybe it’s more an American flavor — as it was essentially ‘cooked’ here.
    As a lifelong resident of Massachusetts, I’ve always felt some special sort of connection, particularly with Thorough, but secondly with Emerson. Seeing the same landscape and nature which inspired them, in turn, inspires me (in addition to my natural wonder at nature). Anyway, rambling now, yes, great video. Thanks. – A Fan

    He was a spiritual Master; read The Gospel Of Emerson!

    The strange thing about these videos is that they almost solely are being watched by people in the USA. It thus appears as if RWE to a large extent is forgotten in the rest of the world. I do, however, feel that he is of great importance to your great nation to this very day – perhaps even more important than most of us may realize.

  20. PhilosophicalVikingApr 30, 2013

    It is a pity that something as beautiful as this is not watched as much as it should. Of course most of the herd has never read Emerson anyway. Thank you for such an absolutely profound video.
