In this interview with SAND co-founder Zaya Benazzo at SAND19 Italy, David Lorimer talks about the limitations of applying a mechanistic model to a living organism like the human being. He asks whether the brain produces or transduces consciousness. He covers the psycho-political phenomenon of scientific dogma, the experimenter effect, the work of Rupert Sheldrake, the implications of the theory of evolution, the place of A.I., the complexity of human emotions, the power of Love, and more.
