The ineffable bliss of existence

There is a concept of sweetness in India that can't be put into words, although countless Indian poets have tried through the ages. 

This song sung by Mātā Amṛtānandamayī Devī ("Amma") and some of her disciples, along with the accompanying still photos of Amma pouring out love from an inexhaustible source, convey what words cannot, but hint that moments of pure bliss we sometimes experience at simply being alive are actually our true state.

The scientist who nearly drowned from laughing in delight, in amazement, in wonder, at the discovery that an octopus was a tool maker.  Yes there is video. Just make sure you don't have anything in your mouth when you watch it.  

Explain this thing to me

I used to be able to do this when I was a kid.  Okay; nobody's looking. 

I am mighty diving feathered one from the sky!
