The Zen of Alan Watts + South Park Animation + Music

Below is an interesting, truthful talk from Zen master Alan Watts, animated by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the wacky creators of South Park and other hilarities. What I love about the talk is that Watts not only invokes music, but is also justifiably critical of our education system, and our way of engaging with the world. Watt’s talk reminded me of Sir Ken Robinson’s talk about how schools kill creativity. Watt’s talk below, is shorter. It’s worth 2 minutes 20 seconds of your time, for sure.

Robinson’s talk is around 18 minutes, but is both funny and painfully true. Robinson has also written some great books.
