Are you kidding me?
I'm not sure if I'm more horrified by your mockery of science or by the positive reviews you're getting for this ludicrous and trite amalgamation.
Positive points: The animation was decent, the sound was good, the aesthetic presentation was well done.
However, the content of this submission is inexcusable. And even more horrible is the influence it is apparently having on people. You are passing off non-professional judgments, random unrelated truths, and random unrelated /mis/truths as evidence.
I question how you can even in sound mind call this science unless you honestly have no idea what science is. Thus, a brief explanation is in order. Science is a method of observation and testing by which we increase our knowledge of the universe. Its basis is in the application of statistical reasoning about our universe. It is essentially a rigorous system of skepticism. None of your points are testable, or even really meaningful. Many, in the series as a whole, are just wrong. For example, being 'right' or 'left' brained is not a thing. Even just a quick look on Wikipedia for lateralization of brain function would have told you that. You cite no studies. You cite no experimental verification. You lack the ability to assert your statement in a scientific way, and what you are saying is not science, you just want to call it that.
A lot of the points in this video are just interesting facts about geometry, but then there's no proof for spiritual involvement, just verification of geometric principles. Further, everything is most certainly not geometric in nature. A basic understanding of our current conception of quantum interaction indicates a probabilistic universe. But really that is not even necessary to refute your point, as you claim thoughts too are bound geometrically. However, abstract objects do not exist in reality, and thus do not have geometric properties. If you want to make a metaphysical claim that they do, you have a lot more philosophical work to do, and that is a highly contentious point.
Your claims also fall short of the usual primary problems with religion, which this "spirit science" is most assuredly, by the way. You have no proof for abstract casual objects, yet assert their existence. However, it seems a fact of this universe that abstract casual objects cannot exist. If they do, I have seen no verifiable studies motivating their existence, so for you to assert one, you would first have to motivate your claims with research, rather than baseless whimsy.
The point of this review isn't really for your edification, as you seem, based on your responses to other reviews, unwilling to actually think. However, I hope that people will actually post truthfully about this garbage rather than let positive reviews mount up. Honestly, its really depressing for me to see, not only these stupid assertions be made, and I will maintain they are stupid unless you can actually motivate them with real scientific work rather than what you feel is pretty and nice in your fake mental construct of what you'd like reality to be, but people swallow them without question.
Use your brains, people.
I'm honestly not sure if the positive reviews are trolls, but even if they are, even a fake validation of your pseudoscientific mental vomit should not be done.
Hey, what's so bad about sharing and discussing ideas that haven't really been heard before? In fact, modern science is beginning to discover exactly this in quantum physics and beyond. This is where unified field theory and e8 come from.
This flash is extreemly well done and carried out. The art style matches the music very well, and everything is well drawn.
What makes me sad is that animations like the ultimate showdown and stuff that does not look nearly as good get first place for like six months and this goes unnoticed. This piece is true art and every scene looks like a significant amount of work into it. It may not be quite as good as stuff like brakenwood, but it is definitly up there, and I could see this easily being in the top five or ten on newgrounds.
Keep up the good work!
Well, y'know it's a music video and it Coldplay can't be loved by everyone. Furthermore its a kind of serious flash, so there again, it's not opened for everyone.. =/
Thx for your comment!
It was good, but...
Its not the "best thing ever." There are plenty of cartoons I believe are better, not to say this is bad or anything. I didn't really find it that funny, either. It made me chuckle, but not roflmao or anything. Good job, and above average, but I don't believe its the best thing on negrounds, no disrespect.
I agree there are better things on newgrounds if I could I would move littlefoot ahead of this one just to get everyone to shut the fuck up about the flash's position in the portal
The song was great, but the parts you did could use some work. Mostly, I recomend using a greater range of color within the characters (to apply shadding) and cleaner lines (basically just spend a little more time drawing your lines so that they aren't so slopply looking). Try to use a little more frame by frame, and apply more animation overall. Tweening just doesn't look that great overall. Certain aspects were okay, but the still forms which looked like they were drawn without any card could be touched up. On your extra, I would recomend making it a bit slower (draw some intermediates of each tween and double the amount of frames), as it looks too fast, but that was pretty good. That being said, this is a good deal better than a lot of submissions and it was pretty good for what it is. Keep it up!
Also, what's the deal with the random "Error on Export" in the intro?
to sum up the main of this reivew:
its in doodle-esc graphic style!!!!!!!
the extras fbf = doodle
error on export = odd noise heard at that point..
There are a few problems with your animation: No shadows, no vanishing point, and your anatomy is off on some characters. It just gives it a feal that makes it seem wrong, nothing too major. I think it would be a lot better if you got some voice actors.
Just my 2 cents.
