Via Open Culture, I watched this Gus Van Sant short film from 1982. It "illustrates" a short story/essay by William S. Burroughs, The Discipline of D.E. The D.E. stands for "Doing Easy," which is following an efficient, smooth path through the universe. This sounds cosmological, but the movie teaches us how to get through our day without bumping into things or spilling, so, yes, the cosmos in a drop of water.
