Video with ,

In this interview with SAND co-founder Zaya Benazzo at SAND19 Italy, David Lorimer talks about the limitations of applying a mechanistic model to a living organism like the human being. He asks whether the brain produces or transduces consciousness. He covers the psycho-political phenomenon of scientific dogma, the experimenter effect, the work of Rupert Sheldrake, the implications of the theory of evolution, the place of A.I., the complexity of human emotions, the power of Love, and more.

David Lorimer, MA, PGCE, FRSA is a writer, lecturer and editor who is a Founder of Character Education Scotland, Program Director of the Scientific and Medical Network and a former President of the Wrekin Trust and the Swedenborg Society. Originally a merchant banker then a teacher of philosophy and modern languages at Winchester College, he is the author and editor of over a dozen books, most recently The Protein Crunch (with Jason Drew) and A New Renaissance (edited with Oliver Robinson). He has edited three books about Beinsa Douno: Prophet for our Times, The Circle of Sacred Dance, and Gems of Love, which is a translation of his prayers and formulas into English. His book Radical Prince on the ideas and work of the Prince of Wales has been translated into Dutch, Spanish and French. He is the originator of the Inspiring Purpose Values Poster Programs, which have reached over 300,000 young people.
