“People don’t change from learning facts. People change from discovering a big, meaningful new identity… This is how people have spiritual awakenings. “
This weekend, the Intent.com team spent time with the world’s leading thinkers in neuroscience, quantum physics, cosmology, spirituality, and social justice at the Sages and Scientists Conference. Some of my favorite talks were given by husband and wife Nancy Ellen Abrams and Joel Primack, who collaborate together scientist and philosopher, working to make the astonishing discoveries of cosmology accessible to everyone. I highly recommend you check out the library of videos they have on their website; watching them reminded me of visiting a planetarium when I was a child. What a universe!
I was especially impressed by the expansive vision these two have with regards to how science can transform and improve our world. Once humans understand the cosmos and our unique place in it, Nancy and Joel said, we can start making rational decisions about problems like climate change, water shortage, and global inequality. In their view, making topics like dark matter and quantum physics accessible and relevant to everyday people is not only important, but absolutely imperative for the continuation of life on this planet.
