OMG! The visuals and the music are wonderful. But, for me, there was a little too much spiritualism at the end.

This is amazing... but too sad.

Ricko: I think the last part is just a hallucination of the dinosaur.

Kay: Sad indeed..... In reality, I doubt the dinosaurs were smart enough to have any idea what was going on. They must have been confused as hell, though.

I don't know what to think.

The visuals are beautiful. I guess dying in a huge blast is fine enough. I think a bit too poetic and romantic for an oversized chicken that might be expected to run away, but who knows. The whole thing with white balls of light evaded me. Vague spiritualism? Spirits? The will to live? That motivates running toward a conflagration? Self sacrifice? Perhaps I'm just too literal and obtuse. I've been called worse. I
resemble that remark.

On second thought perhaps it was simply a realization that death was inevitable. And a desire to get it over with.

I cab kind of understand that. Living on major military bases we were expecting to be targeted in a major way. I use to answer people asking what I would do if nuclear war broke out that I would try very hard to be as close to ground-zero as possible. Vaporized in an instant doesn't sound so bad.

Art: True enough. It's poetic license. I took the small balls of fire as being sparks or embers from the conflagration. And yes, if death is inevitable, it's best to just get it over with. As for nuclear war, I know something about death by slow radiation sickness, and instantaneous vaporization would certainly be preferable.

By the way, about your earlier comment which you left here but which was obviously about the Chinese video post -- I moved it there since that's where it was relevant.
