In a conversation from SAND18 Italy, two philosophers and information theorists exchange ideas about the nature of reality. Sharing the gift of using everyday objects as illustration they invoke explanations from Plato to quantum theory to investigate some age-old questions - like whether the moon is still there when we close our eyes. They ask the fundamental question, What does it mean for multiple observers to share a single world, when it is different for each observer? - and suggest that we are moving from a world of entities to one of relationships.
How can there be intelligence without consciousness?
Gabor Mate describes his work as an archaeology of the mind, a gentle dusting off to discover the treasure within.
Donald Hoffman reminds us that we can predict people's choices up to seven seconds before they are conscious of making that choice.
Ever wonder how we try to predict the unpredictable? Supercomputers use the power of chaos theory.
Stuart Hameroff, co-founder of the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, follows a brief overview…
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.
In this inspiring talk, the mathematician Edward Frenkel speaks about the beauty and elegance of mathematics
In a world where scientific theories often sound bizarre and counter to everyday intuition, and where a wide variety of...

Imagine for a moment being in a church where mathematics groups meet regularly to solve geometry problems…
In an incredible first, scientists have captured the world's first actual photo of quantum entanglement
Climate change is one of the biggest and toughest problems facing human society. Unless the rise in average global temperates is stopped soon
If you were to stand outside the universe—outside both space and time—and look at your life, you would see your birth, your death and every moment in between laid out as distinct points.
There are many things that affect our mental health, from work-related stress to past traumas to whether or not we meditate each day.
A new model suggests that these subatomic particles may not be so fundamental after all.

Since childhood I have been fascinated by holograms. The reason was the science fiction movie Star Wars and in 1984 I watched it for the first time.
I know what it’s like to live a life driven by emotion, and believe me, it won’t make you happy.
It was on the edge of Berlin on July 14, 1930, that science and spirituality came together in one of the most intellectually stimulating conversations in history
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
Daniel Siegel introduces the Wheel of Awareness, a representation of the structure of mind. Research…
Just as artists are driven to create, scientists need to prove that something is as it seems. Their mantra is, don’t tell me, show me through repeated tests that arrive at the same results every time.
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
