Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck

Absolutely love this video. It's amazing.

My favourite parts:

   Definition of awe; “An experience of such perceptual expansion, such perceptual vastness, that you literally have to reconfigure – upgrade – your mental schemata just to accommodate, just to take in the scale of the experience.”
    “… gazing upon the famous deep field photograph, literally allows us to mainline the whole of time through the optic nerve.”
