HOWEVER, from a pragmatic/practical point of view, they can be considered, “as-if” foundational.
 
In short: They work very well.
 
But it is akin to the difference between 0.0000000001 and 0:
 
We can treat them ‘as if’ the same, but they’re still not. This doesn’t invalidate them; what’s to invalidate? But it leaves room open for future changes to the systems, to prevent them from becoming fully absolute dogma.

Videography and music is fantastic. The colors just “pop”.

As I watch these things, I usually imagine the film crews on boats, helicopters – a big mess behind the camera.

But then I saw the insect. I had to stop and comment. All my resistance to being caught up in beautiful imagery and music just fell away right there and I let myself absorb the whole thing, back-erasing the earlier skepticism of tourism films.

Yes, this is stunning and very well done!
