LITQUAKE: Get REAL-- Perception& the Nature of Reality

'Is there an absolute reality? Some real reality independent of perception? If so, how do we access it? If not, how do we know that what’s out there is really out there?

We’ve assembled a neurologist, an artist, an alternate reality game designer, a psychologist, and a physicist to answer these questions and yours! Participants include Robert Burton, MD, Jonathon Keats, Tania Lombrozo and Jane McGonigal, moderated by Ransom Stephens.'


Writer and artist Jonathon Keats is the author of six books including Forged: Why Fakes are the Great Art of Our Age (Oxford University Press).

Tania Lombrozo is an Associate Professor of Psychology at UC Berkeley; she also blogs for NPR's 13.7 and sometimes pretends to be a philosopher. cognition.berkeley.edu

Jane McGonigal, PhD, is a world-renowned game designer and author of the New York Times bestseller Reality is Brokenjanemcgonigal.com 

Ransom Stephens, PhD, is a science writer, physicist, and technologist. His new novel, The Sensory Deception, puts you in the realities of endangered animals. ransomstephens.com
