Very good video and thanks for the translation! Ubuntu reminds me of the buddhist concept of emptiness. I wonder where else you can find these thoughts and ideas. I have similar ones and would like to see what others have concluded and thought in the matter.

Also, "I am what I am because of who we all are" is much more beautifully worded than my "We're all connected; you are the consequences of your surroundings" tag-line I've been using.

I have had a similar mindset, coining my phrase: alone, we are men; together, we are heroes; as one, we're gods. Simply meaning the more of us that think collectively, the greater the outcome. And I always try not to preach but feel that we do owe the world around us.

Consider those that say they want to keep the money they earned all by themselves. Well it's hard to earn that money all by yourself when you use numerical systems, linguistic systems, mechanical systems, etc all designed by those before you to perform work that most of us didn't come up with. We were taught what someone else already knew. Without the labors and knowledge of our predecessors, we could never be where we are now. Then it is our duty to give back to the world, so it can continue growing and spinning.

My two cents.

I did not connected it to Buddhism at first, but in the end it looks close to it.

It gets hard to realize how much of what we "own" is coming from the others. Basically... everything?

well it wouldn't be your's if you didn't get it, but it wouldn't exist without those before

.. I'm scared that you broke into my flat. I've had the exact same three CDs until I misplaced them the last time I thoroughly cleaned. Now I know where they went!

You rocks! Ubuntu rocks (in the past)!

These covers looks to be for music CD with these ear plugs aside.

* josuah does the traditionnal Ubuntu dance, listening at these CDs. _o/ \o/ \o_
