Take a look at the video below called, Side Effects, by Eleonora Stella Hariyono Oei, on YouTube. What do you think the video means?

I like the video as it is, but I kinda wish there was more color to represent the different transfers of energy the guy took on by the end of the video b/c none of them were his own. There was only a slight difference between the dog’s and the guy’s “dark matter” tho, if you look close enough. 👀

What does the “dark matter” represent to you? How do you get rid of your own “dark matter” after a hard day at work? Self-care? Journaling? Therapy? Family time? Vacations, when possible? Exercise? I mean, we all have to have a healthy outlet to channel that “dark matter” b/c life isn’t easy by any means. 

My Interpretation:

What this teaches us or reminds us is that we are human. Things affect us in ways that we don’t even realize. Even when we try our best to block it, but b/c we are human some things get to us anyway.

Another thing, it says is that we all have our problems, so being kind to someone b/c we never know what others are going through is important. Nobody on the face of this Earth is exempt from trials and tribulations. No matter how much money you have, what kind of job you have, what’s in your bank account, what type of home you live in, or what kind of car you drive. EVERYONE HAS PROBLEMS. While we don’t have the same problems, we all can manage a smile, pleasantries, or to be kind to someone at some point in our day.


At the end of the video, the dog is covered in his own “dark matter” from being home alone all day. When he sees his owner and they hug, the “dark matter” immediately disappears from both of them. It means that they can cure each other’s emotional pain, which really means that dogs are the BEST pets EVER!! 🐾🐩🐶

Somebody mentioned that this is an AWESOME video to advocate for an emotional support animal and I agree. I definitely would love to have another dog b/c life can be a bit lonely from time to time. I loved how the guy had a way to discharge his negative energy, it melted away from the love of his pet. ❤
