Introductions and viewing of "The Consciousness Chronicles"

Hi folks,

Our inaugural meetup will be hosted at:http://hiveat55.com/contact-us

Heres the suggested agenda:

- Informal introduction by each attendee and what they hope to get out of the meetup group (including myself)

- 30-45 minutes viewing of some highlights from "The Consciousness Chronicles" (http://conscious-pictures.com/) in which some key researchers discuss some of the current consciousness theories.

- Moderated group discussion of the video material.

- Discussion and suggestions for theories and material to be covered in future meetups.

- After meetup drinks for anyone interested in further discussion!

If anyone wants to do some background prep for the meetup, this book (by one of the grande dames of consciousness studies) is a good, economical (and brief) introduction:

Look forward to meeting you there, please RSVP if you plan to attend and look forward to meeting you!
