This is quite a nice two minute video (that yes, may require watching twice) that explains the concept of the self in the patterns we form in the mind on perceiving the world. " The film offers Silva’s 'interpretation of Strange Loops of Self Reference, recursion, and the emergence of consciousness and self-awareness'" and is based in large part on Douglas Hofstadter’s influential book, Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid.
