Veritasium
The truth, with photons.
I hope I've articulated everything clearly in this video. If not, I'll clarify in comments. Thanks to everyone who appears in this video and thanks to everyone who watches this video!

Veritasium is of course a combination of the latin 'veritas' meaning truth, and the common element ending 'ium'. I guess this is my version of the 'draw my life' craze that rolled through YouTube many years ago. Except I wanted to tell my story with the actual moments, the photons, the stored magnetic states. There's something about that which is so important to me (because I think the alternative involves fooling yourself) which is why I'm so fascinated by film and video.

One of my inspirations for the name Veritasium came from the end of the poem Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats, in which he writes:
"Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

You have a beautiful family, and life story. You should seek God, and seek a relationship with Him, make videos of physics and His creations. God bless you!

You are a true 'Veritasium'.

I love your videos and your persona so much that while watching your videos, no matter how long the advertisements are, I watch them all the way so that you can possibly generate some advertising revenue.

You are an inspiration!

Can you please make a video on Yoga/exercise and science?

I think Derek is off target when he talks about "survivor bias." He describes his meandering path that has led him to be able to live off of his YouTube income. He is successful in one version of the term. But he also says that he keeps changing his idea of what he wants for his life and what kinds of videos he wants to make. That means that what he has accomplished now in 2018-19 is nothing like what he had in mind in 2004 - especially since YouTube did not exist as even much of an idea as something possible. Be honest: Did Derek in 2004 have even a hint that he would be swimming in a pool of shade balls in 2019?
I say, Follow Your Dreams, Neon Pegasus! And remember that your dreams will change the more you learn.
Your job while you are alive is to do the most valuable thing you can imagine, because you will soon find yourself doing things you never imagined.

I love this shift in music. This is great art.

I'm incredibly inspired by your life journey! I find it extremely relevant to where I am in my life right now as an undergraduate student, trying to find/build the right path that, as you said so perfectly "satisfies all of my passions."

Thank you so much for this video!
I relate to you in so many ways, especially since I too am an artist studying science and at some points feeling like the safe route is not what will make me happy on the long run.
It's truly inspiring to see where you managed to get with enough determination and the will to find your OWN path despite social norms and financial security.
I hope I can someday say the same about myself.

I love this. Thank you!
