Goethe's Theory of Colours

Colour from a sensory perception point of view. The least scientific or technological one, very atmospheric and philosophical, through experiences worth telling. It's funny how light and darkness were hinted at and picked up by artists with their use of value (black, grey and white) and how Goethe anticipated the opponent process (red versus green, yellow versus blue) through coloured shadows. Documentaries this good are hard to find.

But I like so many.

The Elegant Universe is probably the one I've recommend most, simply because it does a decent job of explaining some complex ideas.

Wasn't too fond of the new Cosmos, and the old one with the late great Carl Sagan is a bit dated.

There's a lot of WW2, WW1, Vietnam, Korea, Civil War etc. docs I like as well. Honestly, I'm probably happier today with some of the more explorative Youtube channels like:

I was going to go with this. The fact that Billy Mitchell is still trying to defend himself makes that documentary that much more interesting.

I've always been extremely interested in fairness and helping the world change for the better by reducing our suffering in it. I'm not saying that I've accomplished much in that regard, but I keep being drawn to these things in life. And I like seeing things that others are unaware of. And The Red Pill was the best documentary about that sort of thing that I have seen.

I guess all of you must have seen it by now, as well. Since it's been out for a while now. I hope it's popular at schools, where learning to relate to one another is so important. And I probably think it's more special than you do, because I am so deeply invested in that type of subject matter and I know how unlikely it was for a documentary like this to be made and how important it really is for our societies. For me it is probably the most important documentary I've ever seen.

On YouTube // On Google Play

The reason I think it's good as a documentary is because it doesn't tell you what to think so much as it presents to you ideas and views to consider. It has extensive documentation available online, and it's based on something that is severely played down, even outright dismissed all the time. So not only is the subject matter relevant, it's also treated with respect for its gravity as much as a 2 hour documentary can. Documentaries can only ever provide a window to look through but I think The Red Pill manages to do so very well.

I like documentaries that are based primarily on astronomy or serial killers.

not sure it's my favorite topic but the ken burns series on the national parks is fantastic. re-watched it a few times now, usually in preparation for a trip visiting parks.
