Reality...

A lot of this stuff goes over my head but somehow I see it tying in with what the Dhamma (as expounded by the Buddha) relates to...

More links to related topics at the TED website as well...

That was amazing, thank you Bhante!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Thanks, bhante. A good talk and a good blog post.
For me, the connection to the Dhamma is the common endeavour to understand our perceptions.

And what is right speech? Abstaining from lying, from divisive speech, from abusive speech, & from idle chatter: This is called right speech.
