The most astounding fact

Dear Wondernaut,

From time to time, an amazing individual arises who overflows with such passion and compelling reason that with every poetic breath inspires a nation to be curious and fills hearts with childlike hope and enthusiasm -- a gift to mankind.

I wanted to share this most astounding person with you:

When I was a child, another person inspired me in this way: Carl Sagan. He inspired me to dream and compelled me to appreciate the majesty and beauty of nature. Every time I contemplate her, I feel childlike.

Will you tell me who inspired you?



The brain is a hunk of matter that is a product of ages of evolution. All of physics and chemistry and biology that we know so well cannot explain that which makes us tick, what gives us purpose, consciousness, feelings, etc. But, Prof. Terrence Deacon has unraveled new and radical answers of how the mind emerged from matter.

Please consider joining me to explore this on Wednesday, April 18 in San Francisco.

And, may I also ask you to share this with people that know. We have seating for 150 and we need all the help we can get.

Thanks. I hope to see you there.

Eric
