    Kurzgesagt is lying to you, in every video, even in this one. Because our videos distill very complex subjects into flashy ten minute videos and unfortunately, reality is, well, complicated. The question of how we deal with that, is central to what we do on this channel and something we think about a lot.

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

Hey Everybody. So as we said in the video, simplification and science communication go hand in hand – It is a balancing act that we take very seriously. As the media landscape has become more and more divided and fragmented in the last few years, we thought we just need to talk to you guys about it and just tell you what we think about it and how we handle it. In the spirit of transparency and just because some of you might want to know our approach. Science communication means that you make a selection of what and how to tell it. That you have to decide where to draw the line between details and simplifications to make a complicated subject understandable. We are still figuring out the best way to do this and are learning along the way. And we are able to do this because of you – Kurzgesagt is fundamentally fan funded. If you want to support us on our journey to figure this science communication thing out you can check out our shop, where we make scienc-y products designed with love and produced with care: https://shop.kurzgesagt.org/ We love bringing little pieces of knowledge into your home or classroom that inspire you to learn more about the universe in a little more detail. With every purchase you directly support what we do on this channel. Ok! Let us know what you think about this video and our approach! And what else you want to know about the weird world of science on Youtube. Thank you for watching and reading! – Philipp

4:21 the problem with that is when it gets too complicated it becomes too easy for science to turn into religious-sounding belief; it also becomes super easy to convince people of false pseudoscience. If science just becomes a series of various models and frameworks used to understand different things, then its' like having a catalogue of different (sometimes opposing) perspectives that you pull out to get what you want. Also a good thing to remember is that science is a good tool we use to gain knowledge (not truth) about the world around us, but it can still be flawed, and the only true way to validate knowledge is for it to be usable. That's what technology is, and it's the proof that a scientific theory works. Scary thing is, maybe we (as a species) aren't destined to understand the universe as well as we'd like to.

@Dosomestuff I see your point, but how often have we pointed towards something and ended up with something else? We pointed at peace over war in the 60s (and many times before) but still don’t have it. Have you ever tried getting a job and didn’t get it due to either your failures or just too much competition? Our destiny as with all things is affected by external influences. The only way to make sure you get what you’re going after is to control everything and everyone, or control everything and unite everyone. We obviously can’t control everything, and everyone doesn’t just unify for good reason, therefore it’s likely we never will understand the universe as well as we’d like. Course that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try…

@THOM Gizziz — You know that receiving a grant from any org doesn’t inherently mean that you are being paid off by them, right? Bill Gates absolutely is not great and I’m not saying you shouldn’t take what an org says with a grain of salt based on their sponsors, but you also can’t entirely discount something just because of the person or people funding it. You have to actually look at it critically and explain _why_ it’s untrustworthy. Kurzgesagt isn’t able to cover topics with every single possible nuance without stretching the video on for hours. I think you’ll find that even industry professionals aren’t able to cover everything about a topic in 10-15 minutes. It’s just a consequence of having to fit so much information in such a short amount of time. The critical bit, in my opinion, is that they still at the very least provide sources and at least attempt to provide a balanced and nuanced view of the topics they cover. They don’t obviously stack everything towards one side, and I’ve found that they present both the pros and cons of things very well. I think, at the end of the day, what you need to consider is that Kurzgesagt themselves _aren’t_ necessarily experts in all of the fields they’re covering. They’re content creators, and they’re doing their damndest to make complex issues in science accessible to a general audience. They seek out expert testimony and thoroughly research _everything_ to try and make sure that their videos are as balanced as possible for issues they aren’t proficient in. And I think that’s respectable. I’m not trying to be rude in my response, I just wanted to try and respectfully point out why I disagree.

@THOM Gizziz You can cultivate a black and white view of the world, or you can try to develop a more nuanced and well-founded understanding of reality. I'm no fan of Bill Gates, but it doesn't mean that every single project or individual with some link to his foundation is corrupt and evil. I look forward to your future "explain everything worth knowing about a topic simply in less than 10 minutes without taking any shortcut" videos. I'm sure they're going to be amazing. [I don't mean to be rude, just trying to make a point.]

They got over 500,000 USD from the gates foundation, so you can be sure they are unbiased and they take money from a lot of other foundations to say what the foundation tells them to. They are also full of shit. If they were experts then they wouldn't have to lie. If you can't explain something simply, in even less than 10 minutes, then you don't understand it well enough to be explaining it period.

@Spinoza I mean if you want to make a living doing it but we can all be scientist, like I feel like in school we should've used different shampoos and experimented how It effected our hair or use different toothpastes and see how that effects your teeth or something? Lol If you wanna learn engineering or anything you can, and test whatever you want. I think money holds us back in a way because imagine if all the best scientists came together to make stuff? Like we patent stuff so nobody else can make it and sell it but imagine if all research was just open sourced like would we could all see it. Would we not be way more advanced then we are now? it's like when 10 scientists discover the same thing I'm sure one of them had some idea to add or a different way to test w.e they're working on but we're all competing against each other to discover the same thing like what was the race to space? Smh 🤦 a competition? Thats literally gambling with people's lives.. they're definitely genius.

@Autunite Duh. My comment was deleted, I guess due to link to math com. Well. I agree, but from the first day of teaching of "exact science" we should explain that this science is exact on some scale and explain this scale. Like most students learn basic ballistics equation" for absolutely rigid body at 0 resistance of propelled through environment in an inertial frame of reference" as a novel full of mumbo-jambo without any hint why this precision is so important and what they really mean in real life phenomena. Like, absolutely rigid body bcs if object we kick is misshapen, it consumes some force for change of its shape and highly likely redirect vector of our force appliance. That's why if we kick a ball, it flies away. If we kick a paper sheet, it would stay on our leg, though misshapen. Though, even there we neglect electric fields forcing sheet to glue on feet. 0 resistance usually is simply grasped, and inertial frame of reference. Well if take Earth as frame of reference on some scale it becomes non-inertial as Earth is moving itself. But even there we simplify producing some mid-explanation entities as Coriolis force. Issue that this way all of us have some depth of knowledge about anything which construct concept of world around which we believe to be true, which produce astonishing amount of misunderstandings. The most recent one is coronavirus and vacs with "spikes" of virus and most of people actually consider that as is. As shown that there is some virus blob with spikes. Without even bothering to take into consideration that virus and its "spikes" is actually just a fancy set of molecules and should be seen more from chemistry point of view to understand "how this works" than anything else. And i find quite ironic that almost in any math cab in any school in any country I visited on a wall there is a statement that math is exact science near a Pi number which is undeniable proof that, yes, it's exact, but on some scale.

@Anton Zhdanov but isn't that present all over? Simple kinetic physics, often we ignore air resistance and friction for early classes. I think that as long as children are taught about the concepts of models, and why we simplify things. Even if a kid could understand differential equations, the top of the line models for every science has areas where they break down, and that's where a curious student can learn about how science advances. Plus if we teach why we simplify things, we can have children make fairly educated guesses of how things work. I remember building a trebuchet for a competition, and we used some fairly rough equations to estimate the distance that it would throw the ball. But it would often be fairly close, and when we started to try to throw things farther, we seeing how wind resistance started taking effect we could start figuring out simple linear terms to add to the equations to improve our estimates. Everything in the world is more complicated than it seems at first, and that seems to be a good way to get people to be curious and try to dig deeper. I think that of all the lies we tell children, simplifications in science and engineering are the least egregious ones to tell them. Our children's lies are basically just a good way to point out that how the scientific method works and how to improve models. If I go back to transistors, the children's lie that they are digitally controlled binary switches works well for many applications. For low speed signals on breadboarded logic gates this lie will work just fine. If we want to dig deeper we go to amplifiers, and we learn childrens lies that have more precision. IE. the transistor can somewhere between off and on, and at this range the input/output equation will be fairly linear. And this would work for low speed amplifiers. But we can dig deeper, we can see how things start acting if you go beyond that linear area, and you can talk about saturation, and the applications that you can use this for. But we can go even deeper, we can start trying to put in high speed ac signals into the transistor, and see that it starts having trouble 'keeping up' and develops funny resonance behaviors, and that's where you can add more to the model too take into account for that. And all of that is ignoring the fact that there's many kinds of transistor. The point is to teach children that there's different ways to tackle the problem and get answers that are 'good enough'. Using the full model of a transistor to model a simple low speed inverter is like using a missile to kill a fly. It's overkill and unnecessary. As long as children are aware of this, they can learn about the scientific method, about hypotheses vs theories vs laws, and that science isn't immutable, you're always looking for more and new evidence. Hell, even explain that the laws aren't perfect, Newton's laws of gravity only works for simple systems, that the laws of thermodynamics are correct on average and over time, but in the localized short term scale, there are small chances that entropy can temporarily go down. The whole points of models is to fit lines to observed data, to predict how new data will look like, and to find out where the model stops working and why. That's the important thing to learn about science, and not whether space is a perfect vacuum or not, etc, etc. Humans need models because it's hard or impossible to learn the whole picture at once.

Due to you guys, I got to learn more and more about humans and about the book called Sapiens as well. I am an undergraduate student who is pursuing BSc from distant learning and that's why self-study is all I can rely on. Since, most of the straight science often seems overwhelming when maths and graphs comes in; your channel taught me that both science and Universe are really beautiful and science helps human to explore Universe's truest beauty via venturing with laws and theories.

@Keith Milner "are you making the argument here that people are too politically polarized and extremist? If so, I would agree." Yes, insofar as people on both sides (although imo the left moreso than the right), both ordinary people and politicians alike, are framing it so extremely that it's almost impossible to reach a middle ground to talk on. "And the issue of Climate Change and what should be done about it has become part of that political radicalization with people taking increasingly extremist positions on both sides." Exactly. And in turn, those radicalized people are forcing others on both sides to turn radical, either in agreement or because they view the already-radicalized as so crazy that being just as radical in the opposite direction is the only viable option to counter them. "The Science behind Climate change is NOT up for question, unless one has other Science which conflicts with or disproves it. Science is not rendered incorrect by people making dishonest or ignorance-based claims on Youtube comments sections. it is not invalidated by false claims about Scientists "not listening to other voices" or "their models not being correct". Whatever opinion or belief one has about the results of Scientific endeavor does not change those results." If we are talking the science of climate change in the long, epoch-spanning time of the geological clock, then I would agree. If we are talking about how our short-term changes to the climate (whether incidental or intentional) are in turn affecting that long-term geo-clock, then I would be rather skeptical as to whether or not we've made any significant, long-term impact at all. I will not and cannot deny the immediate (right now and through our lifetime) and short-term (a couple generations) effects, but beyond that I just don't see any basis. I agree that ignorant fools in youtube comments don't change the results that science has given us. However, it is still viable for such commenters to point out when the scientific community has potentially silenced studies that prove the prevailing theories wrong, or when the created models do not actually reflect the reality they seek to represent--especially when we cannot trace the failure to us actively attempting to positively prove it wrong, if that makes sense. If a scientist has conducted a study on, say, the amount of solid, unbroken ice in the Arctic which either definitively disproves all current knowledge and/or has had enough peers attempt and fail to falsify the results, yet such a paper/s is not made accessible to the public through news or any publication, that is a problem. Of course, if there are problems with how the study was conducted which make its conclusions unverifiable/falsifiable, that is a valid reason to not show it to the world or take it down after publication, but I'm assuming for my example that no such problems exist. Likewise, if a group of scientists has made a 10-year model of, say, US carbon emissions without change vs. certain emission reducing technologies that are subsequently properly implemented nationwide, and in two years it is very clear that the obtained data does not match the expected values of that model, it is fair to say the model does not work and should not be referenced as being successful; that isn't to say it isn't useful to refer to it to improve and make a better one, but it shouldn't be held up as the correct one when it very clearly isn't. "And the results are, overwhelmingly, that man is causing a significant and potentially dangerous shift in climate patterns." As stated earlier, I won't deny it's potentially dangerous and significant. What I don't believe is that it is either able to fundamentally alter the geological climate in any long-term sense, or that the situation is so dire that plans such as the Green New Deal are the only viable option (much less an option at all). "The politics should really only come in deciding whether we need to do anything abot it, what we need to do about it, both individually and collectively, and how any changes need to be rolled out. The bottom line is: there's a difference between Climate Science and Climate Activism or other political forms of expression. The fact that politicians (and their shills) are attacking the Science, rather than doing their jobs and setting policy and legislation, is rather telling." I agree that politics shouldn't be involved until all results are in and the outcomes, should nothing be done, are clear. Although, at least in regards to this topic, it is maddening that so much focus is put on whatever the US has or hasn't done, while far worse countries like India or China appear to receive very little pressure or actual need to address these problems, whether by adopting cleaner means of burning fossil fuels or going to less pollutive measures (nuclear, etc.) I also agree that climate science and climate activism are and should be two different things. However, I believe that politicians should be allowed to question (or "attack") the science, insofar as they are well within their rights to seek proof that the science in question was done rigorously and properly, just as any of us are/should be. It is unfair to expect them to blindly accept any science paper or whatever and then make policy decisions off of it without any chance to ensure it's correct. It is just as bad to enact policy based on erroneous science as it is to refuse to enact policy based on proper science. Also, "You believe in X political thing and therefore I would rather see corroborating studies from less biased sources" is vastly different from "You believe in X political thing therefore your science has no basis to be believed". I don't know who, if anyone, has made either statement, but there is a distinction between the two that I feel like many people don't bother to make. Wishing to ensure biases, political or otherwise, are not involved in the science should not be frowned upon. I would agree that there are plenty of people out there who would use this as an excuse to stonewall the distribution of necessary findings, but that does not make such a stance inherently bad. However, stating that you or your science have a politically-motivated purpose (or whatever the case may be) and are invalidated because of that is wrong and should not be allowed to stand.

@JRK "It is not the problem of non-citizens of a country to "take on" those countries that are "more problematic" like China and India. They have to deal with their issues, separately (ultimately speaking), though hopefully they'd realize the importance of reaching out with hat in hand and asking for some advice when they need it (likewise with any other nation). Just because Johnny takes bigger, also-stinky shits, doesn't mean Jack doesn't have to deal with his own stinky shit too." No, we as ordinary citizens of the US shouldn't be tackling China or India. The people of power and influence in our government should be using any and all peaceful attempts to pressure them into handling those problems properly. Us citizens of the US should be pushing our officials to take that stance, alongside properly fixing our domestic problems. The problem is, the "Biden" administration (which honestly really isn't Biden's, but w/e) hasn't been doing that. And imo the only recent admin that's tried is Trump's. "Others aren't LITERALLY shoving shit down your throat either. " Yes, saying "literally" was a slight exaggeration, but I can't help but think of it that way when any non-conservative-leaning news media is either actively telling us to do that shit, subtly (or not) gaslighting us about it, or saying that we're wrong for not doing it. Sure, they're not actually running up to me and shoving their talking points down my throat to regurgitate to everyone else I see, but it's about the next best thing given their media avenues. "And it is guaranteed at least 50% a problem of the receiver's attitude than it is of the giver's manner of proposal. (In fact, the common assertion used by anti-Leftists is "people usually aren't intending offense, it's really the offended that are taking too much offense -- i.e. lacking thick skin" in more or less words -- the same philosophy can also ring true with your attitude about people shoving down your throat anything you don't like. Can't have it both ways, and also, get over it please. Yes, all manner of discussion everywhere can benefit from better exuberance of *good manners*, but that's kind of a universal wisdom that's always been applicable to anyone)." Average Leftist: You all should be cleaner and more energy-efficient and do what our side says! Average Rightist: Well, this is how I think I should go about things instead, which is going to get me there as well. Leftist: HOW DARE YOU YOU RACIST BIGOTED PIECE OF TRASH! I HOPE YOU FUCKING DIE! Rightist: HOly shit, what is your problem?! I'm not going to listen to a madperson's point of view, so get away from me and don't bother me! Leftist, later, to other leftists: Wow, he's just so thin-skinned and can't handle my words and facts! Now yes, this is a cariacture and exaggeration. And I'm well aware that you can flip the right/left terms and have similar arguments from the other side. THe issue is that there are far more leftists who take this approach (or don't even start with the "nicer" opening) than there are rightists; and it feels to me like many of the rightists who would give the crazy start do so because leftists pushed them so far that they think they -have- to act/react that way. Me telling you that I don't agree with your or your party's line of thinking, and your response is anything like the above (or even as simple as casually insulting myself and not the argument I've presented); that's the kind of reaction that's been more pervasive on the left/liberal side than the right. Being told that you're any number of "x-ist's" or "x-phobic's" or that any opinion is "x-ism" almost purely because it doesn't agree with the other side won't help your cause. Also, just because a conversation needs two people doesn't make your opening words any less important. There may be an onus on the receiver to have an amiable and respectful response, but that doesn't mean they have to respectfully sit there and listen to you hurl abuse. "The solutions put forth for the energy demand (the big part of our problems) have not actually been "unreasonable" or even drastic. But otherwise feasibility is always an issue and I agree there, but again, who's doing more of the wholesale attack and exhibiting bad faith and poor attitude? It isn't the side you think it is." The Green New Deal demands that basically all usage of oil and natural gas ends within 5-10 years or so, which is nearly impossible to do when there is no ready alternative yet. Also, it's still who I think it is that's exhibiting bad faith: The leftist/liberal side. Even if the ordinary left-leaning Joe on the street isn't like that, the liberal political leaders are, and from there the people who whole-heartedly believe in their words and actions follow suit. 'Course, there's plenty of RINO's on the right who only play-act at being there, but.

@JRK "You cannot truly look at things objectively (though it is admirable for us all to do so), especially without much of the data at hand. It is not preposterous to think we can change the "natural cycle" relatively quickly at all (we've levelled huge swaths of environments and tossed up entire layers of ocean and atmosphere in the spans of years & decades, even centuries, which is a blip in geo time). And, going by unofficial reports of US gov't activity and admittedly-biased reports on China's CCP (though tbf anything they report is touting their own horn), we've also begun directly (as well as indirectly) influencing weather patterns (for the purposes of agriculture and all that)." I have no doubts that short-term changes have happened, both in relation to human time and geo time. In fact, I'm not even surprised there have been attempts at "small" scale weather manipulation, whether for crops or for anything larger. The issue I have with the general fanaticism is that it's still small both in scale and in time. Will there undoubtedly be changes and fluctuations due to our meddling in the near future? Absolutely. I don't deny that. But if we want to draw that out into geologic time then it has to be a change that will reverberate out over hundreds of thousands to millions of years as a near-irrevocable change that nature cannot "fix" once humanity is gone. And that I don't believe has happened yet. It could still happen, yes, but I doubt the current, real chances of that are even higher than the single digits, if they're even more than 1%. It'll likely get higher if we let China and India and the -real- problem countries run roughshod with inefficient and polluting coal usage, much less literally covering the oceans in trash, but I find it very hard to believe it's so immediate and pressing for any and all the radical shit they want to impose on us "for our own good" or any other tripe. not even the fact that there won't be any obvious, direct signs of the impact makes that justifiable. "It is also preposterous that both pro- and anti-climate change proponents, even the scientific ones -- and especially the anti- ones -- presume to know what the last few natural cycles have been, to a T. But that doesn't work AGAINST the pro- argument; it doesnt' make a difference at all, because whether man-made or not, slowly losing land on the coast, losing lots of safe breathable air, becoming less tolerant of the very sun which gives life -- all of that is starting to happen right now." I would hazard many of the anti-CC people who aren't in the scientific community are that way because the pro-CC are so fanatical and radical in pushing their agenda that they want no part of it. Obviously there will be those who are well-versed enough to be against it, or are anti-CC to be trolls or otherwise just be shitty people, though. And yes, those things are likely happening as we speak, over years and years and generation over generation. Working to reverse them should be a high priority. But telling the US--and, in effect, the entire world--to cold-turkey quit what has sustained our electric power and economy for centuries with zero reliable backups or means to maintain either the current economy or the inevitable decline due to the decrease in shipping quantity is economic suicide, and should be both political and social suicide as well. Nevermind that we'll still need to keep coal and natural gas around as backups for when more renewable sources fail or aren't enough. All the fearmongering in the world, justified or not, pales in comparison to the needs of the ordinary citizen needing an affordable gas-powered car to reliably get from point A to point B. Electric cars are still too expensive (though they are getting cheaper, IIRC), and I have no idea as to whether or not the current power grid can or will be able to handle the needs of hundreds of millions of electric cars year-to-year. You also may need to convince people to give up their privately-owned vehicles which they bought and paid/are paying for and maintain on their own and switch to public mass transit, which is a tall order itself. And that's just a couple problems. "Human beings are weak and pathetic, but we can do shit and the best shit we can do is fuck things up real quick (which, as I almost hinted at elsewhere in this thread, is part of the Generational Problem: people fucking things up for the next gen, and the next gen fucking up the traditions that came before them -- all part of information not being passed or learnt 100% "correctly" and people doing things w/o knowing why)." You'll get no argument from me here. What's worse is that the censorship of any opposing ideas feels like it's worse now than it's ever been. And it feels like any attempt to discuss information that, right or wrong, goes against what is the "preferred" narrative that we're presented with is censored and removed without a chance at discourse. It continually baffles me that, even if the pro-CC people are 1000000% correct in every single current prediction--or, to be a bit more relevant to the current day, anyone who's super-pro-Corona shot or fervently listens to Mr. Fauci and thinks their word is literal fact and law--why not let those who disagree actually voice their arguments? If they're just factually wrong on every count, it does little harm to actually hear what they have to say and counter every point. There will be people who will listen and believe them, obviously, but because the pro-CC-ers have the factual truth on their side, their opponents can never win so long as the truth is expressed.

@JonathanScarlet Since Youtube commenting chains suck, I shall quote the post I'm responding to: /quote "this only makes sense if you’ve already decided that we have not reached a consensus. Otherwise this seems like a fairly obvious example of a consensus to anyone else. " As I understand science, such things should always be questioned and questioned and then questioned some more until the heat death of the universe. I would hazard that no matter how much of a consensus exists for climate change, it is not so completely understood or infallible as to be above arguing about it or questioning it. It is not like, say, the Heliocentric Model of the Solar System vs. the Geocentric Model, for which the proof of the former is effectively irrefutable. "It seems your primary issue is political rather than scientific considering you’re demonstrating a pretty poor understanding of it." If I have any sort of political implications, it's only because political actors on the pro-change side have tried to figuratively or literally shove that shit down my throat and make me believe it's true. Or they're sitting on a bed of sound logic but then coming up with drastic, unreasonable, or nationally devastating conclusions and plans to fix it. And then they attack anyone who questions them about the feasibility of their plans. And refuse to talk about or take on countries that are more problematic about this issue than the US such as China or India. /end quote It is not the problem of non-citizens of a country to "take on" those countries that are "more problematic" like China and India. They have to deal with their issues, separately (ultimately speaking), though hopefully they'd realize the importance of reaching out with hat in hand and asking for some advice when they need it (likewise with any other nation).

I love your videos for one simple reason, simplicity!! With textbooks and tutorials and whatnot from the 1999s onwards feel more like a prodigious info dump more than an actual educational schema/format. Its not much about teaching more-over it is a competition of who can give the most atrocious amounts of intelligence out of all people. Therefore, I love your channel because it does none of those things and summarizes everything. Also, I absolutely hate those who insult and depict your video in a cynical attitude because SCIENE CANNOT PROVE ANYTHING!! It can only give us a good idea of the universe. The Law of Relativity is a Law for a reason! Its isn't confirmed, but we have a advantageous amount of info for it. So, thank you for helping me understand and comprehend scientific concepts such as energy, rockets, vaccines, climate change, and more with simple parables and simplified information.

@BlueFire Animations Well now we explore the question, what is life? Because scientists struggle to define life. At the heart of it it seems to just be a chemical reaction. Which is also the mechanism that produces stars and everything in space. It's easy to assume its not the same but when you really look at the "definitions" of life they can easily apply to things most people wouldn't classify as living. Really what I'm saying is we don't know so speaking in "facts" saying "there's nothing biological in space" and the universe isn't a life form is really an empty statement. Also you said the scale ends at the Earth, implying that Earth is a biological life form but nothing else is, even other planets?

@Dasch Byers As far as I can tell it's confined to 1 planet as far as the biological stuff goes. There's nothing biological in the middle of space, so I think the scale goes to the size of Earth then stops. And with the claims the other few people are making in this thread about the universe being conscious (how? It's not a life form of any kind, there's no order at all), I really doubt your claims.

( from what I remember reading as an example, all tables are representations of an the idea of a table but no one is the true "ideal" table ) there is a lot of humility in that idea - that reality can never be truly known , but it can be approached , i.e. always something to learn ;)

@Omar Alsabbagh Thanks for that ! Just a random thought, but Noumenon - I wonder if it shares etymological origins to the word Namoona / Namuna ? from Hindi ( Urdu ? ) meaning a sample ( in the non sarcastic insulting way obviously lol ) - and Mnemonics - both seem to originate from proto-indo-european language and both , I feel , are in the ballpark of meaning " a representation of something to help understand but not the actual thing" . Very fascinating the evolution of language as a tool to help gain and convey knowledge about the world around us through words as representations / symbols / stand-ins

Theres a paper by Immanuel Kant 500 years ago, 'The critic of pure reason'... its a beauty... probably referred to philosophy at that time. Today maybe quantum dynamics..

You know, it's unfortunate that Kurzgesagt has to make their videos like this, but it all fits into how humans today have to have their information fed to them through baby simplified videos. 🤷

as someone who studied for a "proper education in science" (with degrees) and went into science communication in my early career, I think Kurz does a great job in balancing what they describe here. I also support a lot of the details and conclusions in a lot of these videos. For example: I took a masters course in immunobiology, and the videos on the immune system do a pretty crack up job of giving a quick yet detailed enough look at a very complex system. TBH after not being in science, these videos triggers memories and information that I haven't exercised in many years. Quite refreshing Thanks Kurzgesagt, happy holidays.

Great video, but as someone who worked in research and development I am very skeptical because I have been on the inside. The 'science' is whoever will pay for it, the experiments are whatever needs to happen to pursue the research of those providing funding and there is immense pressure to make this look a certain way when an entire business model depends on repeat business. Then if you add into this culture pressures, for example if you wanted to question climate change scientifically, no one will fund that, no one will put their name to papers in it, no one will publish it because it goes against the politicised narrative. FYI I'm not denying climate change, just using it as an example of politicised and culturally divisive topic.

But that's because you know it's them and have a preplaced trust in them; If somebody unknown said the "I'm an astronaut, billionaire, pathological liar" joke everyone would confidently answer that they don't trust that the individual is actually an astronaut billionaire even though he told them he is a liar.

@Chris Shannon Take the Mars colony video: it's simply lying to the audience about the plausibility and utility of the concept, and it's doing it because they like the idea. The video only uses science as a way of lending credence to its claims, even though they're wrong. This video is their response to critics: "you're stupid children and we know better".

This was the first time I've seen an artistic representation of what molecules look like. Was that.. based on anything, or purely an abstract illustration as to say "who knows?"

@jucom Technically it does have an appearance. Its just not Visually observable by humans. or anything we know. since blasting it with light to see it would lead to changing it. But in theory even if something is impossible to observe. it still has an appearance. just not a very useful one.

Does it really make sense to talk about what molecules 'look like'? These things are so small that you can't really 'see' them in the same way you can see a macroscopic object. The simplified picture that light just bounces of objects without really affecting them much, allowing you to form an image, kind of breaks down at those scales. On a related note: I once did a lab course in spectroscopy for university. The vibrant colors of the spectral lines created by atomic/molecular transitions were awe inspiring to me, and honestly unlike anything I've seen since. If I had to give an answer to the question what an atom looks like, this is what I would go with.

I think you are performing a great social function, growing up curiosity for science and philosophy into youngsters minds. In certain way, science and citizenship are also connected, so, people in their daily bases can understand how deep we have shrink into climate chance or how dangerous the war against drugs are, pushing them to take better decision in political realm

Can you make a table/spreadsheet to list some of the trade-offs, exclusions and key decisions made when making each video, not just the sources and articles? It would provide more transparency to the audience as well. Perhaps even consider adding your references to a frame at the end of each video because most people won't go looking for sources after each video is finished.
