  1. This video has a lot of artistic talent to follow, but everything he said about empathy really made me think about the worlds empathy about each other and mammals that have or had happened throughout the world. Also having the different neurons of what an average person thinks now, what a person neurons were in the middle age, and the cave man all really do change completely. Great video.

  2. We can be more empathic by not putting ourselves first all the time. we are part of the whole world and we need to think of others too.
