Is Perception Reality?

May 14, 2018 at 7:00-8:30 p.m. / Building 320, Room 105

A Conversation on Neuroscience, Consciousness, and Faith

Hosted at Stanford University

Can we create consciousness through artificial intelligence? Is there a deeper reality or truth that we are missing because of the limited capacity of our brains? Come join us in exploring the depths of neuroscience with two Stanford experts, one a Christian and one a Possibilian. Professor Bill Newsome and Dr. David Eagleman will draw on their expertise and personal beliefs to participate in a facilitated conversation on topics spanning from consciousness and sensory systems to our perception of reality, and how it is all related to our identity as human beings. Come with your own ideas, as there will be the opportunity for audience members to ask the participants questions! There will be an informal reception with light refreshments both before and after.
