SAND18 US – Being Human through the Engine of Creation

Video with

21st-Century science is on the verge of recreating the processes that may have brought life into being on the young Earth some four billion years ago. If experimental proof is achieved, these processes would be shown to be the fundamental “boot codes” of the living world. Cycled together they would then constitute an “engine of creation” that continuously generates all of biology, human culture, technology and even conscious experience. The emerging understanding of this conceptual engine bears surprising parallels to the Dao and other spiritual systems. Ironically this highly reductionist work on our deepest ancestry may give us the great gift of unifying the dual magisteria of science and spirit. But if we all live by and within this engine what does this say about how and where consciousness operates and what does this tell us about our own free will and future? Dr. Damer guides the SAND audience on an illustrated journey from life’s beginning to some possible answers to these big questions. He concludes by suggesting a way to use the power of this engine to further evolve what it is to be human and how we might collectively realize a truly great destiny.
