Oddly enough, I sat by Prof. Krauss that evening at DOC NYC and talked with him (and met Herzog that evening, too! Not to brag, or anything...). Glad to know a real man of science enjoyed and was similarly chilled by Herzog's latest film.

Terrifically poignant video. Scientifically fascinating, and, perhaps, a good means of consciousness raising.

Of course, there are some minor concerns of misguided anthropomorphism ascribed to such behavior. But it's hard to deny the similarities to our own species.

We are not so different from our animal relatives; rather, we ARE animals.

You hit the nail on the head (for lack of a better cliche), chawinwords. It's not only appealing to feel you're part of a greater narrative and on the side of the good guys, it's also so much easier than thinking for yourself.
