Too much

Do you really expect us to listen to 4 ten minute monologues?

Couldn't you give us a taster or summation of what they say so we don't all have to go through that.
I know it's awfully 21st century, short attention span sounding, but that's an awful lot of listening before we can get any discussion going.

I have been watching the entire series this afternoon - I am up to Number 5. I was going to post all of them here as I watched them; there are probably 6 or more. I won't bother posting any more. If people are interested; then they can look for them on U-Tube. I didn't post them to get a discussion going - people don't talk about this stuff in general. I just thought that they were an interesting series; & that someone may get something out of it?

About sums up what he is talking about with the denial of Death - through the cultural mechanisms of symbolic & literal immortality; i.e. works & religion primarily & respectively.

He goes on in the remainder of the series to explore the consequences of engaging in such belief systems.
