    It goes without saying that there's a bit of an imbalance in opposing comments like "Let's just show the band perform the song. WTF?" with "Symbolism all over the place. You notice something new every time you watch it. It makes you think. The mood fits perfectly with the song. Has a longer lifespan before getting old." You're going out of your way to praise one video while simplifying the concepts of others in order to criticise them.

    This video is much better on YouTube in HD! I didn't realize that the MTV stream was actually causing gaps in it for me. It was very chaotic and hard to follow. Now I can actually see what's going on it.

    People running randomly are just neutrons released by each single atomic fission, as this points out. Mike is "the catalyst" of the reaction, or if you prefer Robert J. Oppenheimer which has "become death, the destroyer of worlds" alter-ego, Masked men are the "unstoppable weapon" or menace the song is about, the one that can't be outfought, unmatched and so on. Chester in the water is the humanity gasping and dying in water, suffering and unable to stop what has been started by itself.

    Neutrons of the reaction are being hit by masked men and Mike itself to start a stable chain reaction that quickly (in a single instant that seems to last for 4 minutes) grows into a beautiful and destructive explosion, magnificent and slow-pacing to see in the core of the reaction but instantaneous and unstoppable from the outside.

    Thats a little confused but you can figure it out better by watching the video wisely and slowly, stopping by some single scene and thinking about all that Mike and Joe told us about the concept of the video.

    Hey, I'm Dan
    New user to the LPA even though I've been snooping around at LPA's news for some time now xD
    Anyway, I really enjoyed the video. I can watch it repeatedly and conjure up different themes/stories. The "non-edible" colors were awesome and I thought Joe looked the most epic in his blue/green colored scene.
    Awesome video.
    Now, this might sound "n00bish" and my apologies but does anyone know when will iTunes make The Catalyst Video download-able?

    Welcome to the LPA. I imagine the video will be downloadable around the time of the album's release.

    And WOW the video is way better in HD.
