Our Phenomenal Human Mind, Core Values, Common Sense, Agreed Truths, Shared Visions, and Getting Real
The relatively new fields of cognitive science, neuroscience, memory investigation and more, are finally uncovering the nature and form of the human mind. The home of self, source of emotion, recorder of past, discoverer of knowledge, imaginer of future, master of Philosophy, conjurer of the super natural, and builder of civilization – the container, no less, of our entire personal world. As science uncovers this phenomenon of human consciousness, what practical benefits might these insights offer to humanity? Will they help us to better achieve social justice, to develop more effective economic systems, and return, if possible, to a healthy and thriving material balance with the natural environmental? What are we coming to realize as human beings, and might it lead us to become a more civilized, joyful and healthier species on Planet Earth? Longtime Humanist Community member Martin Squibbs will discuss these questions.
After the Forum, please join us for a buffet lunch at 12:15pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
