A Final Destination: The Human Universe – Deepak Chopra, M.D., F.A.C.P., Founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing

This session will discuss the seven universes that human beings have devised to explain existence, leading to the conclusion that the cosmos has evolved to reflect human evolution. This is not a philosophical observation but a “must be so” when it comes to such baffling dilemmas as the origin of life and the appearance of consciousness. The seven universes reflect human perceptions about reality itself.

From Magic to Religion to Science: What’s Next? Dean Radin, Ph.D., Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences

Humanity’s first grasp of reality was based on a magical worldview. Over millennia, magic evolved into a multitude of esoteric and religious ideas. Within the last five centuries our worldview has settled upon science as the arbiter of truth. Each of these major transitions has offered more comprehensive explanations of the natural world, but each new paradigm also suppressed useful elements of previous worldviews.
