This is a subject I imagine every adult and probably teenager has contemplated, more than once and for considerable periods of time. It's an older video, and about 1.5 hours long, but for anyone seriously interested in the subject--and who isn't?--I think it gives much food for thought.

Daniel, it took me two days to watch the video. That is not because I am a slow watcher -- I do fall asleep at times watching videos which is why I never get through some of them -- its because I had other things to do that required time as does everything, does it not? BUT, I enjoyed the discussion immensely! Thank you...

Thanks, David. I post these long videos because I watch them as an alternative to MSM and other lunatics, along with their educational value--for myself and any life-long learner.
