Science, Spirit and Artificial Intelligence

With Nicanor Perlas

Saturday 21st July 2018

10am - 4pm

Science, Spirit and Artificial Intelligence

A workshop with Alternative Nobel Prize winner Nicanor Perlas

Worldviews define the fate of civilisations and human existence.  For thousands of years humanity had a spiritual worldview. Today, materialism seems to be at its height.  However, in reality, materialism is losing ground in almost all domains of human existence.  A second, more spiritual, scientific and philosophical revolution is reclaiming sacred ground in such areas as physics, biology, linguistics, psychology, philosophy, astrophysics and neuroscience.

 

Join us in exploring the new scientific spirituality that has emerged.  Understand why these findings give us a clue as to who we really are, what our deeper tasks may be, and how humanity may be saved from potential extinction due to the rapid emergence of Artificial Super Intelligence, courtesy of one-sided materialism.

 

The workshop will also discuss how these amazing discoveries can help us improve all aspects of our lives — our initiatives, relationships, health, work, our future and how to create a better world.
