Very nice.

So is the Earth any closer to being conscious, then? (assuming consciousness emerges from complex networks of 'stuff').

didgeridoos play better in autumn, all things considered, provided there's a southerly over the frangipanes and the circus clowns get their lunch-breaks on time.

not to mention the many different teas you can buy these days.

The part where the globe goes transparent was cool. Too bad we're not going to have the technology to tunnel through the earth anytime soon, though given the results of fracking, maybe we better leave Ma Earth unfenestrated...
