There are times when you need to look at the beautiful things in Nature.
Times when the eyes need a rest, the mind needs a rest, the soul needs a rest. In spite of all that is going on in our world, there’s still some beauty. And that’s what we need to hang on to to be able to carry on.

We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED 2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled “Mysteries of the Unseen World,” which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
We ALL are connected through NATURE!!
We ALL are ONE!!
