“Maybe I’m not a human being that has consciousness. Maybe I’m consciousness that is shaped into a human being.”
Jeff Lieberman, an MIT-trained artist, scientist and engineer, makes a scientific argument for mystical experience. He asks us to challenge our perception of what we are, our relationship to the universe, and our relationship to one another. Our minds are “thought-generating machines.” What would happen if we could turn off the machine? If we could transcend our individual experience of the world?

He hosts ‘Time Warp’ on the Discovery Channel, using technology to see beyond the limits of our normal human perception. Lieberman also shows technological sculptures around the world, to bring people an emotional and mystical connection with science and the universe. He composes music in the duo gloobic, and has performed in Carnegie Hall.
Having finished four degrees at MIT (BS: Physics, Math, MS: Mech. Engineering, Media Arts and Sciences), he is exploring the applications of technology to evolving and shifting human consciousness.
