Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Tuesday May 13, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting topic: “Is The Universe Alive?” presented by Janet Rowland.

In this meeting, we’ll view an episode of the Through The Wormhole series. This episode includes scientific theories pointing to the possibility that the universe is actually a living organism.

After viewing that video, we’ll watch 3 brief video clips featuring MIT Philosophy Professor Caspar Hare. Professor Hare’s clips are from one of the classes he teaches at MIT, and are directed at providing his students the groundwork for formulating convincing philosophical arguments. We won’t be tasked with doing that but, the arguments in the clips will provide more detail – from a philosophical approach – on two concepts discussed in the Through The Wormhole episode; the Teleological or Design argument and the Fine Tuning or Cosmological Constants argument.

In closing, we’ll talk a little about a technological development discussed in the Through The Wormhole episode, quantum computers.

It’s a compelling idea that the science of physics, based on mathematics – and philosophy, based more on pure thought, are merging in a synergistic partnership. Hopefully, this partnership points the way to an ever increasing understanding of the universe and our place in it.

All sincere seekers are welcome. A $5 donation is suggested to support the ongoing expense of Louisville Esoteric Society.

REMINDER…. We have a new location for meetings: Westport Road Church of Christ – Community Room, 4500 Westport Road
