My thought is that this needs its own branch.
That is incredibly interesting, and a little bit sad/defeatist.
I...have to watch this again as well. After studying for midterms. Ah...life...
I will say that the thing that initially "caught" me about this was the idea that we inevitably break down into two groups--those seeking endless novelty-based happiness and those seeking something other than happiness. I feel like YouTube can provide a kind of demonstration of that dichotomy; there's a side of it that's about being new and different and engaging and spontaneous, and there's an equally powerful (yet far less recognized) side of it that's about saying something meaningful, sometimes at the sacrifice of novelty or "sizzle" (see: zefrank, vlogbrothers).
Again, I need to rewatch it, but...that was my biggest immediate takeaway.
Thanks for your feedback! Team Branch
