(No audio descriptions or subtitles on this one.)

"If it has music in it, it has value. I don't think songs try to be films, I think films try to be songs." – Tom Waits

The spirited man says things are about to get heavy, for we are amidst our move from crisis mode toward humanity's next period of flourishing.

The video shows how we are currently toward the end of our third cycle of an 80 year block (from 1780), with the fourth cycle starting around 2028-2030.
