SicDev

I thought it was one of those continuous loops for a second


mychal200302468

I wish it was


burrbro235

Isn't it?


slowmode1

It's 14 seconds long


Publius82

Yeah likewise. Came in looking for a link to a perfect loop. Guess I'm early.


BeanieMcChimp

Took me way too long to realize this wasn’t some macro close up of two wave surfaces coming into contact.


bsylent

It took me reading your comment and then scrolling back up and watching it again lol


Floppsicle

Wait... what is it then??


LucasJonsson

Waves crashing together on a (i assume) flat sand beach or island


threeleggedcat_

Oh shit..


CosmeticTroll

If it's not that, then is the video supposed to be viewed from a top down perspective?


BeanieMcChimp

Yeah I think so, like you’re way up looking down at a beach.


Kryptosis

The slow zoom messes with the perspective too


okokyaalright

IS IT EVEN ZOOMING THO


Kryptosis

Well it could be the heli lowering elevation rather than a zoom. I imagine they’re flying directly over the sliding meeting point of the waves


rmorrin

I don't even know what that is. Please explain


Booms777

Unstoppable force meets immovable object


Great_Chairman_Mao

Wait, what’s a wave surface? I can’t see it as anything except two waves on a beach.


Danny-Wah

It's not that?


littlebigman9

I could watch this all day.


Incromulent

Same. Thought I was in /r/oddlysatisfying


Dragonschyld11

There’s something oddly sensual about that


SmokyBottom

Came here to say this. Sooo smooth


Hollalikeadollaballa

Where is this?


Dragonschyld11

I’ve no idea...


Hans-Polse

It could be Skagen Denmark, where the Baltic Sea meets the North Sea.


pikinz

I’ve seen this in Puerto Rico’s beaches. I have a cool Live Photo on my phone from waves like this.


mikey_lava

It’s your brain recognizing symbolism without you yourself being able to interpret it properly. One of the oldest symbols of the vagina is an inverted triangle while an upright triangle is the symbol of the penis. This video symbolizes Mother Earth being inseminated by the ocean. At least that’s what your brain is trying to grasp.


AwfulChief78

I can’t downvote this Jungian dogshit enough


mikey_lava

It’s funny cuz I wasn’t referencing Carl Jung at all. What part is dog shit though? The part about your brain hardwired to recognize symbols (and patterns) or the part about ancient symbolism for males and females? Both are true. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3000569/ https://psy-minds.com/triangle-meanings/ Edit: you referencing my post to Jung must have just been your brain recognizing a symbol/pattern.


Enarvyne

The part that’s dog shit is the whole Mother Nature being inseminated by the ocean, like what the fuck.


mikey_lava

That was just my personal artistic explanation of why someone might get horny from waves hitting a sand bed, it’s just symbolism. The key part is it’s open to interpretation so not everyone is going to pull the same information. Obviously there’s nothing inherently sexy about water and sand but using what I know about actual symbolism and brain functions to which I provided evidence for I made an attempt at an explanation. What’s really prime Reddit is all the people get irrationally upset at symbolism without fully knowing why.


Enarvyne

Your evidence was a shitty psych website and a paper about facial and object recognition, with symbols being in that object category. It’s not about symbolism at all. If you read the article the actual stimuli in the experiment was faces, letters, numbers, shoes, and scrambled stimuli. Nothing to do with symbolism. You can’t just grab the first article you see with symbols in the title. I’m a psychology student at university.


mikey_lava

Which are all described as symbols because that’s how the brain interprets the world, through symbols and association.


Enarvyne

If you read the article that’s not at all what the experiment was about.


mikey_lava

It’s not the experiment that makes the article pertinent. It’s the information about how the brain uses symbols and association to experience the world.


Dragonschyld11

Well thanks for breaking illusion then. Couldn’t just leave it alone, could ya?


RekYaAll

Wtf


isisishtar

Take my upvote. You’re correct, of course, despite the howls of ‘nuh-uh!’.


bakemyziti

Where and how does this happen


mancerayder11

It occurs in Skagen in northern Denmark


SLIP411

If that was a sound I would be asleep in seconds


NegaJared

this is what its like #WHEN WAVES COLLIIIIIIIDE


GullibleDetective

In waves, In waves Do I take everybody else down? (everybody else down) Everybody else down with me


OddlySpecificK

I tried to find the location of the video for those wondering, but couldn't. I did find something interesting on topic though... [When two waves cross, grid pattern](https://www.amusingplanet.com/2015/08/cross-seas-when-two-waves-meet.html)


Mr_Stoney

Worth mentioning, the last time this phenomenon was brought up it was said that these kinds of waves are incredibly lethal due to very strong rip tides.


Kryptosis

Also the location. It’s likely a tidal flood plain. Once your trapped out too far on the sand getting back is impossible and you’re just standing where a river will soon be often sweeping you far into an ocean.


Inappropriate50

It's called the zipper peninsula and it's here in Canada in my back yard. Jk none of that is true but all of it should be.


singalongwimme

I thought this was scissors zoomed in


lulubooboo28

This was awesome!! Thanks OP


BauerHouse

Zzzziiiiiiiip!


PastaM0nster

That’s freaking cool and so satisfying to watch


rPoliticModsRGonks

I wish it didn't zoom in


malachiconstantjrjr

And they can never tear us apart…


AwfulChief78

Some of us, don’t know why-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yie!


TirbFurgusen

We could live for a thousand years..


liltinyoranges

But if I hurt you/ I’d make wine from your tears


teroid

Why does other one changes angle and the other wave seems to stay in same angle through (i.e stays straight)?


bakemyziti

Not sure if this is the reason but the top wave could be more powerful than the bottom wave, causing a noticeable change in the angle of the bottom but not the top Also looks like the top wave is crashing over the bottom wave which could explain why it’s maintaining more momentum


Crisma77

I love how the pilot/video-editor managed to align the conjunction point of the waves in one spot over the period of the footage while also maintaining the golden ratio.


shannister

You could almost hear nature going "sigh, unzips".


biisiiji

if someone make a perfect loop from this. i would like to know


RYPIIE2006

Unfortunately it zooms in so that would be a bit hard


RazzmatazzCharming60

That would be cool to run along right in front of the waves.


dolsen61

/r/oddlysatisfying


Thomasappel

"You go surf those waves private! That's an order!" Getting real napalm vibes from this vid


Dr_Brian_O-Blivion

There's something oddly not interesting as fuck about this.


conjectureandhearsay

The ocean’s got like, angles, man


d0bdish18

God's zipper


azizpesh

For a second I thought it was a really coarse scissor closing.


Benjamin-Doverman

Where? How? Why?

The world can be a cool place.


genkidin

I can sense a perfect repeating gif with this here. Someone do eet


leo7510

How big was this? Cause I want to see a person start at the beginning and run away as the waves collide.


zombie4real7

My brain... What... Where... How... What's going on?!!!


Unable_Phase2122

This is a riptide, right?


Dunadain_

That one wave is totally **owning** that other wave


Tokerville

dayuuum Earth. Show off them lines.


Nickoasdf1

Severely doubting the authenticity


bigfootcantimetravel

Ooooooohhhhh.. i get it now.


ms1080

That happens on Popham Beach near Phippsburg Maine as the tide rises. So beautiful.


Trex_in_F16

Thats how baby waves are born


Gogo90sbaby

This is very satisfying to watch


HonneyBakedHam

This is just a super inelastic demand/supply graph


Betteradvize

And you can never tear us apart


Bing-Wallace

Wave 1, flawless victory.


sparrow-714

This could be a visual metaphor for certain acts😜


[deleted]

I read the title as two waves cuddling. I may be slightly lonely and touch deprived


okokyaalright

literally how tho


okokyaalright

the more i watch it the less i like it for some reason


Matengor

A collidoscope. Beautiful!


Bubbly_Cover5790

Just watch out for the rip on the left there


MRHalayMaster

Oh yeah that physics is physicsing hard boy


FireFist_ace_

Who won ? Who lost ?


AnimalChubs

This took my brain some time to figure out what is happening.


totesgonnasmashit

Legit thought it was the sinking of a ship


lucifern71

Sometimes a returning wave will make a slapping motion and if caught in it…. Ooffff wave slapped on both sides


[deleted]

Shoot this into my veins


drumsXgaming

It’s a wonder you shared this film aura here. Go.


Grumk1n

Saitama's serious punch


i-piss-excellence32

I thought it was a super zoom at first


TestPattern359

Zipper wave


BasicallyAggressive

Someone loop it pls


sweet_and_smoky

... And they could NEVER! TEAR US APART!


IAmCockatoo

pretty


pinkcatsong

I don't get it 😑


UnrulySuffix

Got some Powerman 5000 vibes going on rn.


LeoandSkylar

I visited Skagen in Denmark which has waves colliding such as this! That was a really awesome thing to see.


solareclipse999

Very fine use of a drone


mouseVed

*perfect loop*


d-random

Wonder how they decided who was on top


PM_ME_FIT_REDHEADS

So satisfying!

This would be so satisfying for a background if that thing in the bottom right wasn’t there =(


QuirkyAverageJoe

Where is it?


mr_zolfi

I though it was a microscopic footage of cutting paper with scissors


dotnetdotcom

Makes me want to fire up winAmp and watch some visualizations.

Looks like a broken zipper being used

Would love this as an iPhone background


GandalfFam

Physics homework be like


winterchill_ew

At first my brain has me convinced that the camera is zooming in on the waves but later it's laughing at me saying "man you fell for that?"


gordonv

I need this in 8k, super saturated, and a higher framerate. And playing on a TV that is being sold.


OddlySpecificK

Oddly Specific, but not Suspiciously


Nekomiminya

I hate the fact that it kept moving toward point of impact, not once showing what's left behind until point of equilibrium

[deleted]

damn I think my eyes are now pregnant


Tridian

Ok but where and why is this wave able to creep so far up along the beach?


Niar666

Um, question... are they crossing over eachother or rebounding off eachother?
