    This reminds me of my friend Morgan.
    The best things in life captivate you for unknown reasons. If you can identify that feeling & be in tune long enough, you’ll see what it’s about.
    I tend to borrow concepts from nature and this is such a beautiful video.

    " … all plants and all trees describe their Maker with numerous tongues in such a way that they leave those who study them in amazement, causing them to exclaim: "Glory be to God! How wonderfully they bear witness to Him!"
       Yes, the glorification of plants at the time their flowers open, and the moment they produce new shoots, and when they offer their smiling words is as beautiful and clear as themselves. For through the beautiful mouth of each flower and the tongues of its orderly shoots and the words of its well-measured seeds, the order demonstrates wisdom and is observedly within a balance which demonstrates knowledge. And the balance is within an embroidery of art which demonstrates skill and craft. And the embroidery of art is within an adornment which demonstrates favour and munificence. And the adornment is within subtle scents which demonstrate mercy and bestowal. And these meaningful qualities one within the other form such a tongue of testimony that it both describes the All-Beauteous Maker through His Names, and portrays Him through His attributes, and expounds the manifestation of His Names, and expresses His making Himself loved and known. "

    Risale-i Nur Collection

    "So observe the effects of the mercy of Allah – how He gives life to the earth after its lifelessness. Indeed, that [same one] will give life to the dead, and He is over all things competent."
    Qur’an 30:50
    You will not disappear.
    You will not rot under the ground
    Who created you from nothing;
    He will give body and life again.
    Infinite and will have a life worthy of human beings.
    Death will be the beginning of eternal life.

  38. Nat L1 on October 28, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    I liked seeing the umbrella. It was like the flower had a chill phase in its life

  39. Carolyn Dull on October 28, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Does it produce a seed?

  40. shitcasecinema on October 28, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    I watched the 1993 film Dennis the Menace today and there’s a scene with a flower that takes 40 years to grow before dying. I was curious about if it was based on a real fact and I’ve now found this amazing video. Seeing it die off after opening for only 24 hours made me a little sad. Beautiful stuff.

  41. Thor Dog on October 28, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    I’m amazed it hasn’t been shot yet, being in Chicago and all..

  42. catrionaakacat on October 28, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    These are some prehistoric-looking flowers 👀… makes me think of giant flowers that can eat giant bugs 🤔
    Edit: came here from the "p@nis flower"

  43. Amber on October 28, 2022 at 9:30 pm
