In honor of Buy Nothing Day, I'm presenting this video. I'm trying to creatively show using science, that a life dedicated solely to the acquisition of material things is pointless.
Quantum mechanics has proven the very act of a human being observing an electron determines whether or not it remains a wave of energy or becomes a physical particle.
I like this video because it breaks down this complex topic into something most people can digest.
We're all taught that we are objects living in a world of objects, and to treat ourselves, others, and the planet all like disposable objects. In quantum mechanics, it's observers, people like you and me who count. Not lifeless matter.
When science itself is telling us this, we need to stop.
