There is a series of videos called CrashCourse that cover a variety of topics including psychology, literature and world history. They did a series called "Big history" which is a view of history from the very beginning of the universe to the very end.
I was inspired by how they contextualize us as actors within history, rather than simply being its product. This particular track talks about the nature of...well...everything.
The title is a pun on the name of the presenter: John Green.
