00:01:38,660 –> 00:01:42,722
with Nickantony Quach and “Skydio One”

12
00:01:48,710 –> 00:01:52,342
This is Mason and Nina.

13
00:01:53,934 –> 00:02:00,453
They are having fun with “Skydio One”, my first self-flying camera.

14
00:02:03,470 –> 00:02:06,791
Mason is using Skydio for the very first time.

15
00:02:07,058 –> 00:02:09,055
Skydio camera (left) | Phone camera (right)

16
00:02:09,120 –> 00:02:13,883
As soon as Skydio takes off, it turns around and look for the filming subject.

17
00:02:14,403 –> 00:02:17,575
By default it follows the subject.

18
00:02:19,104 –> 00:02:27,547
However, Mason is switching it from “Follow-mode” to “Lead-mode”.

19
00:02:35,044 –> 00:02:40,663
Skydio is in front of Mason. Can you spot it?

20
00:02:43,143 –> 00:02:50,197
While “Skydio One” is filming, Nina captures everything on her cell phone.

21
00:03:02,840 –> 00:03:06,906
I’m gonna come down the stairs.

22
00:03:07,613 –> 00:03:10,336
Tell him to focus on walking not looking at the camera.

23
00:03:10,398 –> 00:03:13,398
Nina: “Focus on walking not looking at the camera.”

24
00:03:14,412 –> 00:03:17,048
Nick: “That’s English to English translation for you.”

25
00:03:18,239 –> 00:03:20,023
And stop it

26
00:03:22,692 –> 00:03:24,237
And land it

27
00:03:27,043 –> 00:03:27,903
Land it

28
00:03:30,214 –> 00:03:35,061
When landing, Skydio points its camera to the ground…

29
00:03:35,126 –> 00:03:37,654
then up again on the last moment.

30
00:03:44,804 –> 00:03:50,192
Origin of Thumos

31
00:03:50,870 –> 00:03:55,913
Here I am on my bicycle in the city of East Providence…

32
00:03:56,159 –> 00:03:59,640
the day after I met Mason and Nina.

33
00:04:13,849 –> 00:04:19,853
As I crossed the street so did the shadow of “Skydio One”.

34
00:04:25,509 –> 00:04:28,315
“Skydio One” is my new buddy.

35
00:04:29,021 –> 00:04:35,092
Today, we will tell you at once two different stories: Thumos and Skydio.

36
00:04:42,862 –> 00:04:49,000
I’m crossing the Seekonk River on the Henderson Bridge.

37
00:04:56,527 –> 00:05:05,142
At the end of the bridge is the city of Providence in Rhode Island, the smallest state in America.

38
00:05:07,463 –> 00:05:12,735
Providence is home to Brown University

39
00:05:12,971 –> 00:05:16,950
Here is a view of its campus.

40
00:05:17,502 –> 00:05:23,783
A student from this school and I in 2014 took a walk across this bridge.

41
00:05:25,399 –> 00:05:28,819
As we talked about life, the universe, and everything…

42
00:05:28,949 –> 00:05:36,818
he disclosed the trouble he was having in his relationship with his parents.

43
00:05:37,606 –> 00:05:40,846
In response, I told him the following:

44
00:05:41,350 –> 00:05:49,477
14 years ago and 2000 miles away from this bridge, I came up with a mantra for my son.

45
00:05:50,731 –> 00:05:55,251
It is a short sentence with only five words.

46
00:05:55,587 –> 00:06:02,577
It is the one and only lesson from me to my son throughout while he was in first grade.

47
00:06:03,124 –> 00:06:08,611
I told the student, why don’t you take the mantra with you this summer and discharge its power at home.

48
00:06:08,734 –> 00:06:12,454
Half of your relationship problems should disappear.

49
00:06:12,567 –> 00:06:17,125
This is later known as the “First Thumos Mantra”.

50
00:06:17,279 –> 00:06:21,962
It is the single lesson for my son in first grade. Its power could erase half of the unwanted drama in life.

51
00:06:22,103 –> 00:06:26,454
As soon as I’m off the Henderson Bridge,

52
00:06:26,558 –> 00:06:30,968
“Skydio One” and I are now in the city of Providence.

53
00:06:31,347 –> 00:06:36,661
My self-flying camera does not record any sound.

54
00:06:36,771 –> 00:06:40,681
Audio recording is done by the cell phone in my pocket.

55
00:06:42,465 –> 00:06:47,902
Can you hear me struggling riding up the hill now?

56
00:06:58,525 –> 00:07:03,393
Two months later, I received an email from the student I mentioned earlier.

57
00:07:03,571 –> 00:07:08,376
It says: “Thank you, the mantra works.”

58
00:07:08,449 –> 00:07:13,787
“I no longer have problems in the relationship with my parents.”

59
00:07:26,952 –> 00:07:30,199
The email stopped me in my track.

60
00:07:30,366 –> 00:07:35,522
I could not believe that my 5-word mantra

61
00:07:35,674 –> 00:07:39,447
as a single year-long lesson for my son in first grade

62
00:07:39,538 –> 00:07:46,388
would also work for a college student who is about to graduate from Brown University

63
00:07:53,343 –> 00:08:00,760
Right after reading the email, I wanted to write a book about my discovery.

64
00:08:02,418 –> 00:08:08,018
8 months later, a neighbor introduced me to my co-author

65
00:08:18,180 –> 00:08:21,727
Wayland Square is coming up.

66
00:08:21,846 –> 00:08:23,722
Let me turn left there

67
00:08:23,875 –> 00:08:30,036
and show you where we normally work together on the book.

68
00:08:35,734 –> 00:08:43,099
The second house on the left is the coffee shop where we spent a lot of time writing the book.

69
00:08:59,895 –> 00:09:02,895
Here is an extract from the book.

70
00:09:02,895 –> 00:09:05,377
*** Start of Reading ***

71
00:09:05,377 –> 00:09:08,385
“Thumos is a big concept.”

72
00:09:08,446 –> 00:09:13,650
“Its origin can be traced back to a specific time and place.”

73
00:09:14,058 –> 00:09:18,723
It began in Richardson Texas, near Custer Park,

74
00:09:18,870 –> 00:09:23,100
few weeks before the September 11th attacks.

75
00:09:24,057 –> 00:09:31,724
“That was where the first five-word mantra for Thumos was conceived by Nickantony Quach.”

76
00:09:31,724 –> 00:09:34,791
Its potential for widespread effect…

77
00:09:34,872 –> 00:09:38,741
did not dawn on him (Mr. Quach) until 14 years later

78
00:09:38,781 –> 00:09:44,320
on a bridge 2000 miles away–the Henderson bridge.

79
00:09:44,552 –> 00:09:47,552
*** End of Reading ***

80
00:09:55,796 –> 00:10:03,092
The biggest difference between thumos philosophy and almost all others is…

81
00:10:03,092 –> 00:10:08,447
the focus on foresight for your ideal self.

82
00:10:08,449 –> 00:10:14,312
It helps you foresee on whom you truly want to become.

83
00:10:37,441 –> 00:10:42,712
Whereas Thumos is foreseeing philosophy,

84
00:10:42,712 –> 00:10:48,861
Skydio is foreseeing technology.

85
00:10:57,867 –> 00:11:05,054
As I turn right into this parking lot, “Skydio One” does the same.

86
00:11:05,054 –> 00:11:12,810
That is possible because it can foresee where I’m going to be next.

87
00:11:16,417 –> 00:11:21,398
Now, watch. When I suddenly make a u-turn,

88
00:11:21,457 –> 00:11:25,207
“Skydio One” keeps going but only for a little bit further.

89
00:11:25,207 –> 00:11:32,205
And then it realized what happened and tried to catch up with me.

90
00:11:33,790 –> 00:11:40,497
With a new type of visual storytelling as provided by “Skydio One”,

91
00:11:40,560 –> 00:11:48,708
I have a better way to tell you more about the first version of Thumos philosophy.

92
00:12:15,757 –> 00:12:18,892
This is the trail where we spent a lot of time…

93
00:12:18,915 –> 00:12:25,380
talking about how to revise our book material again and again.

94
00:12:26,515 –> 00:12:31,445
The first version of anything is never perfect.

95
00:12:31,910 –> 00:12:34,656
This is true for Thumos.

96
00:12:34,744 –> 00:12:37,744
This is also true for Skydio.

97
00:12:43,583 –> 00:12:49,306
Skydio-One cannot foresee far enough.

98
00:12:49,307 –> 00:12:52,544
Look at the tree ahead.

99
00:12:52,544 –> 00:13:00,041
That’s why it slows down at the tree and then catches up with me afterward.

100
00:13:10,074 –> 00:13:16,530
Thumos philosophy is designed to be improved over time .

101
00:13:16,582 –> 00:13:20,996
It has to be improved over time.

102
00:13:20,996 –> 00:13:25,299
That is its strength.

103
00:13:47,862 –> 00:13:54,889
Thumos3 is the group that produced the first version of Thumos philosophy.

104
00:13:56,106 –> 00:14:00,147
During the biggest winter storm of 2015,

105
00:14:00,152 –> 00:14:07,152
I met my neighbor Mike, while he was building an igloo in our backyard.

106
00:14:07,313 –> 00:14:12,529
Weeks later, he introduced me to Mark Canny, who is now my coauthor.

107
00:14:15,044 –> 00:14:20,112
Although Mike did not write, he helped us think deeper.

108
00:14:20,354 –> 00:14:28,710
It was Mike who got us to think about the term Thumos and he named our group Thumos3.

109
00:14:29,454 –> 00:14:34,252
My name is Mark Canny and I am a coauthor of the book Thumos.

110
00:14:37,015 –> 00:14:41,695
So I had three different audiences in my mind.

111
00:14:42,297 –> 00:14:50,719
One audience was anyone who suffers from frequent relationship conflict .

112
00:14:51,115 –> 00:14:58,726
The second group of people are those who have been on a certain life path up until this point

113
00:14:58,787 –> 00:15:07,030
and feel as if they have made the wrong decision or just feel unfulfilled, uncertain

114
00:15:07,030 –> 00:15:12,579
which, you know, having just recently graduated, you know,

115
00:15:12,579 –> 00:15:16,799
university and college is supposed to solve those problems for us.

116
00:15:16,873 –> 00:15:22,778
But most people I know feel like they’re in this second group of people.

117
00:15:22,778 –> 00:15:27,397
They’ve pursued a path up until this point and they’re not certain or secure in it.

118
00:15:27,397 –> 00:15:30,757
or they’re just in it because, for survival-related reasons.

119
00:15:30,934 –> 00:15:36,284
So, this group of people and the third group of people are

120
00:15:36,284 –> 00:15:40,362
anyone who feel like they lack a sense of personal philosophy.

121
00:15:40,412 –> 00:15:44,167
After talking about these three different groups of people

122
00:15:44,341 –> 00:15:49,920
with different people, friends, mentors, colleagues, peers, whoever

123
00:15:50,082 –> 00:15:56,525
it came down to one collective group of people which is university students.

124
00:15:56,606 –> 00:15:59,276
So this message is for university students.

125
00:15:59,276 –> 00:16:03,395
This book, hopefully, can help you right now

126
00:16:03,395 –> 00:16:07,893
and be proactive for you in the near future.

127
00:16:10,190 –> 00:16:13,860
In between writing sessions, Mark and I often

128
00:16:13,860 –> 00:16:16,860
take a walk around the town for brainstorming purposes.

129
00:16:19,277 –> 00:16:24,765
The scenery along this waterfront often gives our inspiration a boost.

130
00:16:26,456 –> 00:16:31,582
During the first few days of getting to know one another,

131
00:16:31,608 –> 00:16:35,719
I told Mark about the five-word mantra

132
00:16:35,794 –> 00:16:37,999
I created for my son in first grade

133
00:16:37,999 –> 00:16:43,462
and how it helped a senior student at Brown University 14 years later.

134
00:16:45,241 –> 00:16:51,110
At the start of our project, Mark was impressed with the mantra and its origin.

135
00:16:51,110 –> 00:16:55,960
But he did not internalize it until six weeks later.

136
00:17:02,188 –> 00:17:08,750
on that day, we walked by this red-brick building, right here, on the right.

137
00:17:10,229 –> 00:17:13,722
It belongs to the RISD Architecture Department.

138
00:17:14,684 –> 00:17:19,534
As soon as we approach the next red-brick building

139
00:17:19,534 –> 00:17:22,865
which is for RISD Industrial Design

140
00:17:22,881 –> 00:17:30,079
Mark was shocked as he fully grasped the true meaning of the five-word mantra.

141
00:17:32,493 –> 00:17:39,036
He felt necessary to collapse himself and expressed what was going on in his mind at the time.

142
00:17:44,609 –> 00:17:48,862
You can see where I stand.

143
00:17:48,862 –> 00:17:52,106
That was where Mark collapsed.

144
00:17:52,131 –> 00:18:01,473
Both the Henderson bridge email and this reaction from Mark…

145
00:18:01,473 –> 00:18:10,442
told me how powerful the first Thumos mantra is.

146
00:18:12,696 –> 00:18:17,247
For me this location is called Thumos Landing.

147
00:18:43,929 –> 00:18:50,026
12 months later we found our first test subject.

148
00:18:50,126 –> 00:18:54,788
He was a visiting professor at Brown University.

149
00:18:54,788 –> 00:18:57,738
He embraced and approved Thumos philosophy

150
00:18:57,870 –> 00:19:00,870
almost a year before the book was published.

151
00:19:05,689 –> 00:19:11,455
Thumos; that means, master of relationships.

152
00:19:15,497 –> 00:19:18,737
12 months after Thumos was published,

153
00:19:18,737 –> 00:19:21,952
Skydio was released as a product.

154
00:19:21,952 –> 00:19:27,553
It’s the first self-flying camera with foreseeing technology.

155
00:19:28,572 –> 00:19:30,642
Look at this.

156
00:19:30,642 –> 00:19:33,381
Skydio is backing away from the branches.

157
00:19:41,725 –> 00:19:46,483
Skydio; that means, master of the sky.

158
00:20:17,408 –> 00:20:19,967
Luck? Or did Skydio foresee this black wire here, coming up?

159
00:20:20,108 –> 00:20:25,598
Do you think Skydio can see this black wire?

160
00:20:39,870 –> 00:20:44,113
Skydio can definitely see this lamp.

161
00:20:52,620 –> 00:20:56,522
Come on, Skydio, you can follow me.

162
00:20:56,546 –> 00:21:00,450
Go under it. Yes, you did it!

163
00:21:08,630 –> 00:21:16,240
As I bring down the music, you can hear the noise from Skydio.

164
00:21:29,196 –> 00:21:32,126
Let me get off the bike and

165
00:21:32,126 –> 00:21:37,542
show you why Skydio means “master of the sky”.

166
00:21:46,308 –> 00:21:50,866
Donate! Support our work, please.

167
00:27:15,079 –> 00:27:18,801
Long before this dog was born,

168
00:27:18,872 –> 00:27:24,091
before its owner went to school almost 20 years ago,

169
00:27:24,091 –> 00:27:27,285
and almost 2,000 miles away from here,

170
00:27:27,285 –> 00:27:31,932
I came up with the first Thumos mantra.

171
00:27:31,932 –> 00:27:36,002
It is likely to be the shortest

172
00:27:36,085 –> 00:27:40,735
and yet arguably the most powerful mantra of all.

173
00:27:41,731 –> 00:27:47,276
If you knew how to discharge its power appropriately,

174
00:27:47,288 –> 00:27:51,586
you could wipe out half of your relationship problems

175
00:27:51,586 –> 00:27:54,586
in the next 20 years.

176
00:28:00,130 –> 00:28:03,130
It has only five words.

177
00:28:09,155 –> 00:28:12,529
“Respect; that means, no interfering.” — First Thumos Mantra

178
00:28:16,591 –> 00:28:22,791
This mantra lead us to our work on the Thumos philosophy.

179
00:28:25,612 –> 00:28:37,046
What you see here is URI campus, where Mark Canny, my coauthor, went to school

180
00:28:37,046 –> 00:28:41,951
while he was working on the book with me.

181
00:28:46,969 –> 00:28:50,307
An hour away, by bus, is Wayland Square…

182
00:28:50,307 –> 00:28:54,314
where we worked on the book together frequently

183
00:29:01,627 –> 00:29:06,241
Thumos; that means, master of relationships.

184
00:29:12,578 –> 00:29:17,428
Philosophy; that means, accepted wisdom.

185
00:29:19,840 –> 00:29:31,874
“Shared undertanding of terms” is now accepted as the wisdom of Thumos philosophy.

186
00:29:32,124 –> 00:29:43,282
Its creativity is powered by the precision in its nomenclature.

187
00:30:07,736 –> 00:30:15,218
Using Thumos jargon, you can articulate your deliberation in expressing your ideal self.

188
00:30:15,557 –> 00:30:22,337
and thus make others understand how to avoid interfering with our ideals.

189
00:30:22,980 –> 00:30:28,632
It is a better way to command a full respect from others.

190
00:30:46,383 –> 00:30:51,477
Many thanks to all who agreed to be on this YouTube channel.

191
00:30:54,345 –> 00:30:59,018
Many more thanks to Mike, Mark, and so many others in the creation of Thumos philosophy.

192
00:31:06,871 –> 00:31:08,132
Thumos Language

193
00:31:08,198 –> 00:31:15,040
Thumos believes that what you truly want to become is your ideal self

194
00:31:15,040 –> 00:31:19,158
and everything else is secondary

195
00:31:19,158 –> 00:31:22,624
Its jargon gets your there faster.

196
00:32:04,467 –> 00:32:10,971
Master of the Sky

197
00:32:13,550 –> 00:32:18,556

198
00:32:19,110 –> 00:32:22,110

199
00:32:22,110 –> 00:32:24,814
The End
