The video's a bit cheesy (forget me-centric society with a media-loving prof who calls his course U-Lab?) and the rhetoric is a bit over done - and yet, what it's saying is none the less true.

I don't know about "emerging self" other than as a cute way of saying self-awareness and confidence, but I do know that the only way to know oneself is to establish a conscious context of that which shapes you, that which you are part of.

Emerging self.  Conscious society.  Expand out, into the world.

Live together.

It's profound, its simple, its terrifying and humbling and elating.

After all, movements aren't about individuals - they're about what people become.
