Announcing a new Meetup for CFI Beaverton Atheists Meetup!

What: Discussion Group: Emergence?

When: Monday, October 11,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Club House of the Murrayhill Woods Condominiums
9450 SW 146th Terrace
Beaverton, OR 97007

The discussion group will now be held in TWO locations simultaneously (Portland and Beaverton). This helps keep the groups small plus makes travel convenient. Please only RSVP for one.


Come join us for an engaging topic-centered discussion. Please feel free to bring your own beverage. A snack will be provided.



The topic for October is:


Emergence



How is it that multitudes can not only work together, but somehow create something new and distinct, without a leader? How do a group of ants become a functional colony, how do neurons become a mind, even a group of humans can seem to be its own entity, with predictable behavior.



There have been a number of books on this topic, and also a Radio Lab episode:

All are welcome. Cost for Non-CFI members: $2. Free for members.

If you would like to suggest future topics or make any other suggestions, please send them to the organizers.

Thanks,
-Glenn
