Tristan Pollock shares Reggie Watts TED talk transcription with video

I had to do it. Here is Reggie Watts' full transcription of his 2012 TED Talk.

[Speaking French]

—first time and that’s one of the things that I enjoy most about this convention. It’s not so much as so little as to do with what everything is. But it is within our self-interest to understand the topography of our lives unto ourselves. The future states that there is no time other than the collapsation of that sensation of the mirror of the memories in which we are living. Common knowledge but important nonetheless. 

As we face fear in these times and fear is all around us. We also have anti-fear. It’s hard to imagine or measure. The background radiation is simply too static to be able to be seen under the normal spectral analysis. 

But we feel as though there are times when a lot of us—you know what I’m saying? But like—you know what I’m saying? Cause like as a hip-hop thing—you know what I’m saying? Like Ted—you know Ted will be rocking. You know what I’m saying? So like um—

So I wrote a song. I hope you guys dig it. It’s a song about people and sasquatches, other French science stuff. That’s French science. Okay. Here we go.

[Song Intro]

Song And I’ve been trying to be the one that you believe in.

And the one that I want to be sa—sa—saved. 

And every morning I want to (inaudible 3:53) 

And you can do anything as long as you don’t hurt along the way.

(inaudible 04:04) around my cause if you were to walk (inaudible)


If you wanna be. I wanna be, I wanna be.


And it’s like you can use as many of those things as you want. Right? And the computer models, no matter how many that you have and no matter how many people that you use are never going to be able to arrive at the same conclusions. Four years ago I worked with a few people at the Rookings Institute and I arrived at a conclusion. Tomorrow is another day. Not just any day, but it is a day. It will get here. There’s no question. And the important thing to remember is that this simulation is a good one. It’s believable. It’s tactile. You can reach out. Things are solid. You can move things from one area to another. You can feel your body. You can say I’d like to go over to this location. You can move this mass of molecules through the air over to another location at will. That’s something you live inside of every day. 

Now with the allocation and the understanding or the lack of understanding we enter into a new area of science in which we feel nothing more than so much so as to say that those within themselves comporary or non-comporary will figuratively figure into the folding of our non-understanding and our partial understanding to the networks of which we all draw our source and conclusions from. 

So as I say before the last piece. Feel not as though it is a sphere we live on; rather an infinite plain which has an illusion of leading yourself back to the point of origin. Once we understand that all the spheres in the sky are just large infinite plains, it will be plain to see—okay? This is my final piece. And just remember everything you are is more important to realize the negative space as music is only the division of space. It is the space we are listening to divided as such which gives us the information in comparison to something other that gives us the idea of what the idea that wants to be transmitted wants to be. So please without further ado. 

Thank you.

Alright. This is—This is a fun one. It goes like this.

[Song 07:22-07:49]

Okay. Now for the last piece I’d like to do this one goes very similar to this. I hope you guys recognize it. Here we go.

[Gets in a lunging position]

Okay. That still works. Good. Okay. Here we go.

Here we go.

[Song 08:08-09:20]

Thank you. Enjoy the rest. Thank you.
