In 2100 if an advanced form of YouTube still exists. We will be the ghost comments from the early generation of technology

Now this is the sort of video I would like to experience in VR.

Something I find terrifying: Dying and realizing I should have payed a few bucks more for the commercial free version of the afterlife.

I was wondering. What if a program accessing your brain could release you into a malleable, dreamy virtual world of your choosing, while at the same time making you forget about your real life, and even your existence as a physical entity. Where you just become a bodiless being, totally free of pain and mental suffering, and perhaps filled with sensuality. It would be like a powerful escapist drug.

I figured it out. Her time was up so she was sent to anvil where her brain was uploaded to a computer then she was given a lethal injection.Her brain copy is saved in a digital urn instead of ashes. The urn contains an AI version of her that friends, family and descendants can interact with to see what she was like before she died.

This concept of uploading one's conciousness inti a network as depicted in the video and a lot of sci-fi books always terrified me, just as the concept of teleportation. I mean sure, in theory it's all fine: All that makes you up from a biochemical point of view gets converted into data and lives on as a program or, in case of teleportation, is beamed to the arrival and serves as a template to rebuild tge teleported on atomic level. But here's the catch: It's not actually you in either case. The program behaves, thinks and interacts as you would, from an outside perspective it seems like it's actually you, but in the end it's just an impostor that thinks it is you. Your subjective reality ended in the moment the template of your conciousness was extracted. At least that's what i tend to think. It's hard to describe but, i think that the concept of a soul in religions just may reflect exactly this idea: you may replicate your human hull but you are trapped in your own whatsoever. Conciousness is abstract, immaterial and non-transferable, that's why we might never be able to overcome death.

Dark and disturbing, yet beautiful and strangely comforting. I will never forget this video.
SCP-049
Notice she was 27 years old at the age of death. Not sure if it's relevant as this is a very modern song, modern music video and modern genre of music but a lot of young rock artiss from the 70's and 90's committed suicide at the age of 27. I think it even became kind of a "popular" age to commit suicide at. I'm 30 years old now...hang in there guys.
CHORAM
1:59 One of the most "woah" moments I've ever experienced in a music video. Powerful stuff.
amidointhisright
yeah, id totally give up my 27 year old hot triple D breasted body so i can join a social network that looks like it was sponsored by Dorito's.

I feel like this song is WAY before its time, like we'll be properly appreciating it in like a decade or so.

LORN is life
MultiGamerClub
The sad part about this, is the fact that it feels like society today is going this way, its quite depressing you'd want to live your life in an online world forever locked away, rather than staying alive with others.
Smug Samus
Listening to this with headphones makes me want to blow my brains out and go to the next reality...
shanedangers
It's one of those rare songs *and* videos that you *never ever forget after seeing it just one time* ... the animated illustrations and story behind it paired with the song as well is at once deeply personal, affecting and very powerful! I'm not entirely familiar with Lorn, as I mostly listen to synthwave, old school industrial and gothic music as well as 1980s synthpop, italo disco, etc etc... if i could give MORE than 5 🌟's, I certainly would! So... for the record, I give this 11 out of 10 stars!!! 😎🎹🎶🎸🎷💿💯❤😎

I think LORN is one of the most important artists of this century.

I want this to be a full-length film... Real talk. The visual style is incredible. The shape language and camera angles really fit the music and gives an amazingly ominous and mysterious feeling to the story as it unfolds. The Girl could have been animated a bit better in some places. Her breasts for example seem to flop awkwardly when shes in the chair and when shes floating. However, the part at the beginning where she walks and the light moves across her face is great, and the first person shot with her hands turning is nice. The 1 point perspective shots are very Kubrick-esque and perfectly fits the mood of the music. I also really love the slow-moving 3-quarter shot with the floating capsule robot, and the following profile shot slowly moving. These shots give a sense of weight and meaning to the location and what is about to happen. Awesome work.

wow she looks down and instead of seeing those massive juggs she sees her feet that is bullshit.

This video went deep... Gosh... Rest In Peace, Ana Cassini ... I hope your soul is safe now, I only wish her decision was worth it...

I love -Porn- Lorn very much!

Man's dreams are diminished and pessimistic and the art has become a reflection of the fact. When the machines take over and make us obsolete don't complain and beg them for mercy when it was the choice of apathy and ignorance that brought you there.
X Im
I wonder what made her try that, did she know what's going to happen or not? Why did she look so confidence of what she's doing? Really really curious of what she was thinking
E F
Damn, this video got me emotional. the beauty, anguish. dismantling our consciousness into the boundless expanse of virtual infinity. How can something so seemingly cold and lonely be simultaneously awe inspiring and poetic? I cant help but wonder about mankind and the duality of the life. living with an insatiable thirst to push the limits of our existence, yet equally yearning for a sense of unity in the darkness, for love. fuck. what will WE forge at the anvil, as WE become gods of our own realities? this is so fucking beautiful.

sooo.. basically san junipero???

I think she decides to life in a virtual world, instead of the real one. And with all the urns at the beginning, when she enters the room, it seems like alot of people do. Basically you can choose what kind of world you want to be in. Selecting "Nachos" is a synonym for this. 1:53 is when her actual body is destroyed, and a copy is made. Thats what the mirrored mountains stand for. The copy will live inside the capsule you can see at 2:19. (also notice the transition into her copies view..)

3:17 - "27 Club", also anagrams of "Ana Cassini" include "Asian Is Can", "I, as in a scan", "I, ass in a can", "as I can, a sin" and many more.

I was listening to this when I was still forced to attend a business school by parents, every day when walking in I'd hate the fucking place and nearly everyone there. This was the song that got me through my final year.

I had this way far down my sleepytime ambient music playlist and the first big breakdown at 1:23 hit just as I was waking out of a dream and it was legit synaesthetic

This one has so much power and impact on me even tho its just Instrumental. Amazing. Music like this goes very deep...It just feels like this even goes deeper than our own minds, souls and thoughts. Its made by humans but yet it steps over the normal, it reaches the unexplainable...

This girl knows da wey
chazzy2501
Gives me the whole Soylent Green vibe, creepy and sad.  (2 hours later) EDIT: The more I watch this, the more terrifying it is. (4 Hours later): This is truly horrifying, this is about a woman using a suicide machine. We watch her consciousness get disassembled (as she dies) and her digital copy waking up. Finding itself in the strange ruins of a social media site.  Whilst that’s going on the body has been disposed of (fire, liquefaction?) and placed in to a funeral urn!  She’s dead and we had a front row seat!
Игорь Фузман
Accept the fullness of the universe in its very small detail, all the things that people have done and everything that was created by nature itself, and you will understand that "life sucks" is at least disregard to the life itself and that your sorrow is just a little piece of everything and you can dissolve it. As for the goals in life - you are always at one point from which you can change something, always in little steps and decisions, and there's no useful sense to feel gloomy as long as it only hurts.

1:47 I've seen enough porn to realize where this is going. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Amazing!

I'm bought back to this on a daily basis and I can't stop listening to It. It forms so many emotions.....I feel complete and lonely at the same time. So many hidden gems and messages to pick out too, picking out something new each time. The name Itself could mean a multitude of things, but for me, the first thing I think of Is an Anvil cloud, formed through too much Instability.

My mother in law heard me playing this the other day and said this sounds like funeral music,....I said funny you say that...thinking about this video

This raises interesting questions on what it means to be human. It's my dream to have my mind uploaded into simulated reality so I can be whoever and whatever I want, relive my memories and do the impossible without limitations. Do all of those things lose value simply because they are virtual? Is the virtual world not also real? What does it even mean to be human? Is it our consciousness that makes us human or our physical bodies?

Nice mechanical tentacle porn
Shiva's Chimera
The world full of plugged in witches who leave paraphernalia in the wakes of time and space. Much love to these visions in digital format. The future is the mind. Do not fight it. Love the work LORN. Without vision we are nothing. My religion is the vision. My religion is the Art from the vision. My love is the geometry in the thought enhanced by the 4 elements to bring in new shapes of the mind. What flowing elemental masters do you serve? Can I meet them?
