I love this, it puts me in the right mind frame to start studying for my political philosophy module!

Just brillaint. Mind or person? What comes first? Is it a divide? We change but we do we change personalities. What about the body, where does that come in? I could go on and all in a few words a lot of great animation. Gotta watch this.
