This Funzing Experience:
... How to Make Sense of the World

It’s often assumed that there are two ways of interpreting the world: a rational scientific way, or an irrational religious way. In this talk, Dr. Steve Taylor describes offers a third alternative: a spiritual view of reality that transcends both conventional science and religion, and answers many of the riddles that neither can explain.

The standard model of science has had little success in explaining such areas as human consciousness, the connection between the mind and the body, altruism and ‘anomalous’ phenomena such as near-death experiences, psi phenomena (such as telepathy) and spiritual experiences. Steve will suggest that if we think in terms of a fundamental essence of reality - which we might call spirit or consciousness - it is possible to make sense of all these things.

Steve will draw on the on the insights of philosophers, physicists, mystics, as well as spiritual traditions and indigenous cultures, offering a vision of the world as sacred and interconnected, and of human life as meaningful.

Venue: Lock 91

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
