    "the myth of the killer ape is true"
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Fascinating talk. I had no idea the realm of experiments that open up once we reach the next level.

    I fell asleep watching it last night (it was late and I was in bed) but what I saw so far was great and am looking forward to seeing the rest after I get home from work. Good find!

    No actual lasers in the video

    Here is a video of an actual gigawatt laser: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNx97uBKhj8
    note - the small purple dot in the lower center of the screen in the plasma, the bright rainbow glow is the laser beam after the plasma ball (the rainbow is generated due to nonlinear effects in air)

    Title: 'The Extreme World of Ultra Intense Lasers'
    Actual laser in video: ~0.01w baloon popper

    I demand a refund
    Another 'real' laser video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dL9_Tldmrhs - 'popping' a missile (not actually ultra intense, maybe 'pretty intense' at a ~1kw/cm^2)
