The Phoenix Salon for Wisdom and the Future is led by Tom Lombardo, Director of the Center for Future Consciousness (www.centerforfutureconsciousness.com) and The Wisdom Page (www.wisdompage.com). The salon will offer a combination of presentations, discussion, "science fiction movie nights," and other events. The focus of the salon will be on the topics and themes: The future of humanity (and beyond); the future evolution of consciousness and the human mind; the nature of consciousness; wisdom and its connections with consciousness and the future; and science fiction. We will have guest speakers (at times) and discuss new books and articles on the above topics. On science fiction movie nights we will watch movies and discuss them.
