Will watch the video later, but regarding conspiracy theories, I wonder how the average American Joe is going to feel when they start spotting regular sweeps of their All-American neighborhood by drones run by the local police or FBI. Robotics replacing human labor means cheaper police forces with greater surveillance capacity. The usage of drones in war settings served as a dry run for using them to spy on our own population.

Clyde - Companies here in Europe, for the most part, are very very reluctant to use any IT services based inside the U.S. Privacy laws are paramount here. I think the thing that is difficult for many Americans to see, is what has actually happened to the country as far as a surveillance /Police state is concerned. Now that I am in Germany, and not getting the FOX news, etc. FEAR bombardment and hearing other perspectives, I'm quite shocked and perturbed by what is happening in my country of American.
Like this Knicks team, there is still time, but the writing is on the wall so to speak.
Regarding the video, you have to watch in multiple times but just let it run through that first time and appreciate the better than Pixar animation. 7+ years of professional animation rolled into 7 minutes shows. There are quite a few interpretations on the Net as well and they make for fun reads.

The interpretation here is very negative and twisted (for the most part) imo. I was suspicious frequently as it skipped over some clearly positive aspects, twisted some others and further created some more. Some good points were mixed in there as well. It seemed like a conservative Christian interpretation.

This is a video I consider to be mind opening, skeptical or not. It's not relying on vague innuendos to sell an unclear point, it makes no promises or demands and it openly admits that everything proposed is far fetched...but it also provides background, simplified explanations and references for anything you would like to look into further.
I don't buy into everything in the piece at all, but I do find it intriguing and I think it'd be fun to research some of the broader ideas about spirituality just because that sort of stuff interests me. Jesus in Tibet? That'd be pretty epic.
