Time-lapse video of various objects being shaved down half a millimeter at a time

I mean, it's not as if you've got anything better to do.

From Doobybrain: "This sort of gives me the creeps. But for some reason, I cannot stop watching this video from Laurin Döpfner showing various objects being shaved down and photographed, half a millimeter at a time (and then back again)."

Mr. Peach,

That hardwired pattern recognition is, undoubtedly, a survival trait. Where we have a "fuzzy logic" component to our pattern recognition that drives us to create patterns from matter that cannot affect our survival (e.g. this post's video), the phenomena must not have significant adverse effects for the species or else it would not persist.

Route finding, food recognition, friend or foe, the location of the nearest source of fortified wines....

We are soooo hardwired for patterns,

uniform or random/nature.

Really? No explanation on how the shaving is done? Where is your mind at? Really?

I find the videos of the natural items more interesting than those of the man-made items. Anyone else?
