TED Talk Tuesday – Reggie Watts disorients you in the most entertaining way

This man is a genius and turns my frown in to a massive smile. Just how, just how is he so creative? So amazing it makes me laugh.

Improve artist Reggie Watts dazzles the TED audience with his tremendous skills in this brief presentation (plus he layers on some sage words of advice). Switching between improve, stand up, and musical fluidity, Watts puts together a one of kind performance. Enjoy!

” Four years ago I worked with a few people at the Brookings Institute, and I arrived at a conclusion.(Laughter) Tomorrow is another day. (Laughter) Not just any day, but it is a day. It will get here, there’s no question. And the important thing to remember is that this simulation is a good one. It’s believable, it’s tactile. You can reach out — things are solid. You can move objects from one area to another. You can feel your body. You can say, “I’d like to go over to this location,” and you can move this mass of molecules through the air over to another location at will. (Laughter) That’s something you live inside of every day.

So, as I say before the last piece, feel not as though it is a sphere we live on, rather an infinite plane which has the illusion of leading yourself back to the point of origin. (Laughter) Once we understand that all the spheres in the sky are just large infinite planes, it will be plain to see.
