Quantum physics and human becoming.
December 15, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
We are excited that our Holos Project December on-line webinar will be a re-examination of certain key issues in science by quantum physicist, Shantena Sabbadini. This event will take place on Tuesday 15th December @ 18h30 GMT, lasting for approximately 90 minutes.
Following on Prof. Max Velmans’ presentation of ‘Reflexive Monism’, Shantena’s presentation will focus on the issue of freedom vs. determinism in the perspective of quantum physics. After offering evidence for the relevance of quantum phenomena on the macroscopic scale, he will present his case that quantum indeterminacy, freedom, life, and consciousness are deeply interrelated.
In an introductory presentation of 30 minutes Shantena will show how this argument implies quite a different view of who we as human being truly are, and of our relation to our fellow living beings. Ultimately it suggests that the notion of a separate self is an illusion and that our deeper identity is one with the whole universe.
Since a core theme of the Holos Project is ‘human becoming’ we look forward with anticipation to this introductory presentation. It will be followed by a 45 minute group conversation in curated chatrooms.
