Deepak Chopra and Guests: Is This (Really) an Apple?

This paradigm-pushing debate from SAND 17 explores the fundamental nature of reality with a key discussion between four scientists who have made it their life work. It begins with a remarkable dialogue between Deepak Chopra and cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman, and broadens when psychologist Riccardo Manzotti joins them, apple in hand! They in turn are joined by quantum physicist, Jenny Nielsen, with an explanation of nonlocality. Deepak’s skill as mediator brings the debate’s complex issues within reach of the audience, and places this video among the very few that are making cutting edge issues of science and consciousness accessible to all.
