De Rerum (part 1: The Angle)
My verse-lecture De Rerum was inspired by the imaginative materialism of Lucretius' De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of Things). Describing the cycles of history up to 2000BCE in 20 minutes generated a density that at times borders on the opaque, so I'm working on some videos to help get the ideas across. This is the first section, covering the births of matter, life and language.
Music by Brad Balliett and myself.
