Because of the coronavirus situation, this Forum will be held online.
The Forum will be conducted through the website for Echoplex Media. Details can be found at:
You can watch slides and videos and talk with the host.
Two TED talks have been selected. Hopefully they will be of interest and we can have a lively discussion about them. They are:
How Language Shapes the Way We Think, by Lera Boroditsky,
The Origins and Evolution of Language, by Michael Corballis.
You can see the talks at the link above and use the chat feature, or call in at[masked].
Stay healthy. And thanks for your patience with this new procedure as we all try to adapt to this coronavirus situation.

PLEASE IGNORE THE FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS AS LONG AS WE ARE HOLDING FORUMS ONLINE:
DIRECTIONS TO RENGSTORFF PARK AND THE MAPLE ROOM
Head south (away from the Bay) on Rengstorff Ave. (in Mountain View) from 101 or Central Expressway until you cross the train tracks. Then turn left at the intersection (with a traffic light) that says "Stanford Ave.-->" and "<--Community Center". That puts you into the Community Center's parking lot. In the parking lot, veer to the right, and then turn left, and park alongside the right-hand side of the Community Center. Enter where you see the Humanist Community sign.
