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? What does technology mean for the future of religion? What are the limits of science's ability to understand mystical experiences? Panel and audience weigh in on these and many other topics in this format-bending "unpanel."
