8:19 Gravitational fields do not exist? ...my dream that someone will invent anti-gravity device within my lifetime is dwindling. Not to mention developing a technology that would allow us to accelerate the vibrational frequency of an object in order to manipulate it's location in time and space.

I can also recommend PBS Space Time.

This way of thinking is similar to people taking psychedelics and going into altered states then returning with this new evolved perspective how self is an illusion, death is an illusion etc. which has zero practical value - at the end of the day (or whenever that happens) they are going to die/their physical body will disintegrate, so much for “death is an illusion”, in relation to our human body experience here on Earth their epiphanies are useless. Why not instead try focusing on defining this reality in such terms that could be useful to our ability to manipulate it effectively and at will. I don’t understand how telling me that my experience of feeling gravity isn’t real helping me solve the issue of not being able to control the gravitational force - if it isn’t real, then why does it have a real effect on me? If I throw a pencil, why can’t it just float in the air without dropping on the floor, if gravity isn’t real? How does changing a frame of reference help me with my problem of my pencil dropping on the ground and not floating in the air like I wanted it to?

Great video. Considering the fact that we evolved as hunter gatherers whose sensory organs evolved primarily to help us find food, escape predators, and mate, it's not surprising that the psychical laws of the universe are deeply counter intuitive and abstract from our vantage point.

The problem is one of opposition between subjective and objective points of view. 

So either the objective conception of the world is incomplete, or the subjective involves illusions that should be rejected.  - Thomas Nagel

@DocWatts Yet, in the grand scheme of things, not much has changed ;)
