"little old"? You say that as if it's a bad thing. Boy, you best respect your elders. This was made by Charles and Ray frickin EAMES, two of the most important designers ever.

oops. 'little old' was not meant negatively. in any case, the terms 'still impressive' was meant to counter any such thought...

Watching this movie reminded me of a quote from the Valley of Wonderment in one of the mystical works of Baha'u'llah, The Seven Valleys and the Four Valleys, revealed around 1856:

"Dost thou reckon thyself only a puny form when within thee the universe if folded?"

http://reference.bahai.org/en/t/b/SVFV/svfv-6.html

Then, in the Valley of Knowledge, it is written:

"Split the atom’s heart, and lo! Within it thou wilt find a sun."

Hi, please can you try to find an other version of the clip. I would be very interested to see it, but the problem is, that the link doesn`t work, I guess that YouTube removed the video :(
