The video portrays a person in the throes of miracles and visions of beauty, which emanate from within and all around him, but rather than reacting with admiration or joy, he reacts with annoyance, indifference and distrust. We are taught not to see the natural world we still live in, preferring instead to dwell on the artificial, which is so often a poor substitute for the vibrant real. Flowers really spring from the mud, and many of us are full of treasures and beauty, but we often push them aside or throw them away.
