Federico Faggin, Kate Stockly, Vincent Horn and Carole Griggs are the panelists in this vital and timely discussion on "soul engineering." Applications of the science of consciousness - engineering the spiritual path - raise questions we have never had to face: How can we know a technology-induced mystical experience is authentic?

Panel and audience weigh in on these and many other topics in this format-bending "unpanel."
