Topic: Truth

"Truth" won the vote at our January 9 meeting.

All members are encouraged to RSVP, but please do so as soon as possible since spots fill up quickly. 

If all spots have been taken, please put yourself on the waiting list.

We will meet on the second level of the Barnes & Noble store, to the right of the cafe counter area in the back of the store (but not in the cafe itself). You will see a circle of folding chairs (and possibly a folding table) if you walk up to the cafe counter and then look to your right to the back wall of the store.

Please make sure to RSVP only if you are able to attend since RSVPs are limited. If you RSVP, but need to change your plans, please make sure to come back to the meetup site to change your RSVP (at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting) to provide others with an opportunity to RSVP for this meetup.

I look forward to seeing you!

    Another stimulating and interesting group discussion tonight. The question, "What is Truth'', may depend on each persons perspective, past experiences, both positive and negative, an individuals hardwiring, (which there was not time to go into), personal choices and free will. I know that the process is important and not the end goal. It helps us think at a deeper level of consciousness. I will keep that in mind. Until the next meeting on Euthanasia, which should be a fascinating topic.

    Thank You Lawrence,

    Nancy

    I'm sorry that I needed to cancel at the 11th hour. Something came up at work late this afternoon and I realized that I would not be able to leave in time to make the meeting.

    One kind of truth is in math. One quantity is = to another or it is not. There is no ambiquity at this level of abstraction. Another is in the laws of physics that have universal application. In other disciplines outside the physical sciences, practitioners attempt to formulate “laws” that are universally true. A new attempt to achieve recognition for social “truth” in the digital world by using Big Data is reflected in the book “Social Physics” by an author at MIT. The book review in The Economist notes that:

    “The invention of the microscope and the telescope let scientists unlock the mysteries of the universe. The new abundance of data in society — GPS co-ordinates, credit card transactions and phone records, which [the author] calls “digital bread crumbs”— allow people to improve their knowledge of how humans interact and how ideas come to spread.” See review of “Social Physics” : http://www.economist.com/news/books-and-arts/21595883-how-re-engineer-world-measure-man-0

    Most all homo sapiens have searched For eons in vain for that one most important yearning. Without a eternal creator where else is there
    a place to find peace?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
