The last in a series of YTMNDs that were sitting on my desktop and should have been deleted but for some reason weren’t...

Thank goodness this is the last. I take it you are saying the ignorant soldier is being enlightened in his fiery death? Why do you hate veterans so much?

Its title describes the piece. A man, representing ignorance approaches enlightment. If you examine the piece you would notice subtle,but brilliant, pieces to this piece: The man's face is first hidden, then when he sees the light he accepts it warmly and with a smile on his face before he errupts in a brillant moment of enlightenment. Perhaps the face itself hints at subconcious undertones of race( black man with white hair), and the fact he is dressed in a military uniform (saying something about war?)

I love this. As Superlu's review shows, there are many interpretations. Personally I got a different message: Mankind (proudly and with great joy) rushing forth with his own progress. However right before he achieves true enlightenment he is destroyed all the while smiling unknowingly as he meets his demise. Stylized and refreshing. A good example of a YTMND worthy of being called art.

I think you're really missing the point here, fellas. The metaphor IS about enlightenment, but look at the picture. LOOK AT THE PICTURE. Now look at where it goes. It betrays the boundaries of the "Tile" YTMND format as he sees the light. What it's REALLY telling you is to look outside of your boxed in stereotypical YTMND and... and... well the bright light blocked whatever the great revelation was. I guess it's up to you.

I interpreted this a little differently. I saw the light as Ignorance, and the man as Enlightenment. He looks like a wise old black man, like Morgan Freeman, who played God in Bruce Almighty (which fit so perfectly).

i think u guys are thinking too hard. this ytmnd is just artsie fartsie. even tho it is cool. it looks like a locomotive conducters uniform. cause the man is a on a journey. and for the title. ignorance is enlightenment. to know anything you must understand that you know nothing. i got that from a star trek pc game.

Pseudo intellectuals are cute. Oh, I have an idea, I'll put a random picture with inspirational music and I won't explain it so people can look too deeply at it and think it is deep when it is really me being retarded. 5'd for making me feel smarter than I am.

"Mankind (proudly and with great joy) rushing forth with his own progress. However right before he achieves true enlightenment he is destroyed all the while smiling unknowingly as he meets his demise." that's a pretty good interpretation

sexualpotatoes you are confused, artists are not pseudo-intellectuals. they portray their thoughts and ideas to the best of their ability through their art. the viewer then has their own interpretation of the work. KTHXBYE.

I interpret this postively WONDERFUL interperative piece to be undeserving of any postive praise whatsoever. If art is subjective to a level in which any point at all is undiscernable, it is none other than reworded bs.

I think that what makes the LOSTMND series so great is that there doesn't HAVE to be an underlying tone for them. That's why they're his throwaways. He had an idea that he just couldn't properly protray, and tossed it. I think the fact that these are all unfinished but quite brilliantly put together nonetheless makes this one of my favorite series of YTMNDs.

Wow, this is just great. As for what it "represents" or "means". Well that's up to each person individually. I'm not gonna see the same thing as the guy who posts after me. And it's highly possible that none of the ideas put forth agree with your original intention. (Which could have been just "lol, conductor + groove = awesome.") But none of that matters, because I love it anyway. I've gone through a lot of new music thanks to you zer0hue. Thanks for a good run.

I believe the intention here was to create a ytmnd that would cause people to speculate upon its meaning. That's my speculation upon the meaning of this ytmnd, anyway.
