A fusion of both Japanese and Belgian comics inspirations and sensibilities, such as Ghost in the Shell, Akira or Peeters & Schuiten's work. "Anvil" invites us on a journey through the eyes of a young woman in her final moments on earth.

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.

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

This has to be one of the best "recommended videos" I've ever gotten from the algorithm. Amazing! Thank you!

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.

This track has a very strange effect on me. It pulls very deep strings of my inner world. It's so disturbing and relaxing in the same time. Listening to this is like to be on the edge between dream and awareness, like single moment separate me from discovering something incredible fabulous and unthinkable. Something that I forgot when I was born.

Somehow, stumbled onto this in a playlist and have to say: "what imagination". I had to stop what I was doing and pay attention to this wonderful video, thanks to whoever created this delight.
Giorgio Ganis
I really like the line structure and the music. The exaggerated female shape seems a bit gratuitous at first, but perhaps it tried to make a visual contrast between being embodied and then becoming disembodied. Somebody in the comments pointed out that she could not possibly see her feet with those massive breasts. But that perhaps is the point, that the disembodied entity she becomes does not have a real body, that how it would feel to be disembodied.

It's just sad that she had to die that way.... She didn't even flinch walking in there to submit herself to death.. I have so many questions for her... "The year 2100. In an effort to combat overpopulation, the postmortem social network "Anvil" is released"

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...

Everyone is talking about the sexual. It doesnt seem sexual to me but I can see how some who are so brainwashed to liken the female experience to something sexual might see that. I felt sad for her. To be so detached that the only closeness and fulfillment she could feel included committing physical suicide. But i guess I see her point. Physical pain distracts from the mental and emotional evolution. Although most who commit suicide are escaping emotional pain, not physical pain. I see what theyre getting at. Maybe we can all be uploaded into a collective consciousness like on the movie Her.

They should expand this to feature film length and keep Lorn onboard

If music has the right to children, this is the child. Superbly crafted video with stunningly beautiful visuals which perfectly match the mood of the music. Could not have been done better!

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

Liam Head
I'm brought 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. Endlessly 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.

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?

I've watched this video over a dozen times in the past two days, I love this hypnotizing animation paired with the chilling beat.

This animation was fascinating, is emotionally controversial ... the transcendence of the human consent to the virtual realization. I love it!!!... visual Art!!!

I recommend to read "I have no mouth, and I must scream" by Harlan Ellison for everyone thinking this is nice idea.
Tim Wedler
The idea of transferring the human consciousness and soul into a computing network is quite interesting becuase it might be the only way to overcome time and space and to make interstellar spaceflight possible. But it is questionable if something as the human soul is transferrable in an anorganic environment anyway, since we know that our consciousness is not only living in our brain but as well in our intestines and possibly in each and every part of our body. But I like the mind game behind that video. It is a brilliantly told short story and a piece of art.

i wonder if in future, people will do something like in that video, killing the real brain and releasing it into the virtual "life". But in fact, there will be no sense to do it, because the SOUL will be gone and as result, we will just get a powerfull AI that looks like a real copy. And... maybe when the deal will go really bad, humanity would "save" everyone by letting them into the virtual world. But in the end, there will be just millions of computers just speaking

So, in a world where your death is scheduled even if you're young, you are left with one choice to make before taking the plunge:Death with adsDeath without ads for an extra fee

The Belgian comics the description refers to is called Les Cités obscures, One of my favorite comics. The English versions are a bit misleading and needs more explanation but it's still a good read.

VR can already replicate about 60% of the human visual experience; and still evolving. Paired with Interactive teledildonics (Fleshlights etc), this tech can actually aid population control

It's like Soma, isn't it? Only they kill the people once their consciousness has been transported into the VR world. And... in Soma, they make a point that the consciousness in the machine is not the same as the living person, the two can coexist. Meaning that killing the host literally kills this woman, end of story. But a new version of her, that has their own conscious, can live on.

I feel sad for her. I watch this and I literally makes my heart heavy for her. What if this is what the world comes to in the future. What if this will be something that happens everyday.

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!

I cant stop watching this. Its just amazing.

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.
