Notes of Complexity: A Scientific Theory of Connection, Consciousness and Being

April 19, 2024 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (PDT)

ConnectIONS Live!

Complexity theory provides a unique way of understanding the processes whereby the universe gives rise to living, conscious beings and, indeed, may be considered living and conscious foundationally and its totality. 

This talk will move from using complexity to weave together contemporary understandings of biology, chemistry, and physics (including relativity and quantum mechanics) to perspectives on how consciousness and our universe are related.  Insights from contemplative spiritual practices – wherein the mind examines itself – will be included.

Co-hosted by the Scientific and Medical Network
