What we're about

Do you enjoy reading and talking about science? This is the group for you. We will read one popular book of science per month. One member will serve as the discussion leader for the book. You should plan on being the discussion leader once per year. Everyone else will add to the discussion. Should be lots of fun. Can't read a book a month...come anyway and participate in the discussion.

Being You: A New Science of Consciousness, Anil Seth

Online event

From Amazon: What does it mean to “be you”—that is, to have a specific, conscious experience of the world around you and yourself within it? There may be no more elusive or fascinating question. Historically, humanity has considered the nature of consciousness to be a primarily spiritual or philosophical inquiry, but scientific research is now mapping out compelling biological theories and explanations for consciousness and selfhood.
Now, internationally renowned neuroscience professor, researcher, and author Anil Seth is offers a window into our consciousness in BEING YOU: A New Science of Consciousness. Anil Seth is both a leading expert on the neuroscience of consciousness and one of most prominent spokespeople for this relatively new field of science. His radical argument is that we do not perceive the world as it objectively is, but rather that we are prediction machines, constantly inventing our world and correcting our mistakes by the microsecond, and that we can now observe the biological mechanisms in the brain that accomplish this process of consciousness.Rick Davis is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
