This video below crossed my youtube feed, and I was mesmerized by it. If you have 15 minutes, consider watching this video below. Its a presentation about what Manhattan Island looked like before European settlement. It ties in history, GIS (Geographical information systems), ecology and more.
This clip below is a 2 minutes video scene from a sci-fi movie entitled "Lucy" - in which this woman was drugged and accidentally started to use her brain beyond the theoretical sub 10% level. As she reaches 80-90-99% of her brain - she is able to cross the space-time continuum --- and she travels back in time on Manhattan Island. It perhaps compliments the earlier TED Talk....
