What limits and borders are we faced with as individuals, as a society? Who or what defines these boundaries? What are the results of these demarcations — demarcations as barriers that may even result in scientific and artistic limitations to us as individuals and society as a whole? Are they arbitrarily defined borders or are they erected due to their necessity? Are they obstacles or are they beneficial? And what happens if we overcome these borders?

These thoughts and some possible answers are formulated by Thomas Petzold, head of Media and Events Management and Mementum, in the following TED Talk.
