The Secret of Psalm 46

The Secret of Psalm 46 is a talk by Brian Moriarty. The talk is included in full as one of the playable videos in The Witness. Superficially, it is about video game eater eggs, encoding and finding secret messages in works of art, and puzzle hunts. But I interpret it more as a meditation on questions like: What drives people to do things (especially difficult things)? How does curiosity work? How does awe/mysterious strong driving force to make or do something work?

Tips:

  • listen to this in a dark room, lying down, on headphones.

Jonathan Blow also reads part of this talk in one of his own talks https://youtu.be/AxFzf6yIfcc?t=2644
