THE CONSCIOUS UNIVERSE

Why does the universe appear so finely-tuned for biological life?  And closer to home, why does our closest neighbour, Venus, draw a pentagram around Earth every eight years?  How come the Sun and the Moon appear the same size in the sky?  Are we in some way 'participating' in the evolution of the universe, as John Archibald Wheeler claimed?  In this highly illustrated and entertaining talk, publisher John Martineau will demonstrate how the modern doctrine of randomness fails to explain some of the most basic phenomena around us.  Instead, he will argue, the true nature of the universe and its relationship to conscious observers may be much weirder than most people imagine.  Prepare for a fascinating evening.  

 

John Martineau is publisher and editor of the international award-winning Wooden Books pocket liberal arts series, which has been translated into 20 languages worldwide.  Also the author of A LITTLE BOOK OF COINCIDENCE IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM, his primary hobby is collecting solutions to the Cosmological Anthropic Principle.
