The Sages & Scientists Symposium provides a forum for global leaders from a variety of fields – science, medicine, philosophy, the arts, and humanities - to convene and answer some of the most urgent questions facing our future, including:
How can we take an interdisciplinary approach emphasizing conceptual, empirical, cultural and even artistic approaches to the study of consciousness? The symposium will take into consideration key areas that include the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, neuroscience, anthropology, biology, physics, computer science and mathematics. The experts at the symposium will aim to address the following questions:
Does consciousness conceive, govern, construct and become the physical universe?
Is the next stage of human development conscious evolution?
Do we have the ability to influence the future evolution of the cosmos?
How does our understanding of consciousness as pure potentiality enhance our capacity for intuition, creativity, conscious choice making, healing, and the awakening of dormant potentials such as non-local communication and non-local sensory experience?
How does our understanding of consciousness also enhance our capacity for total well-being (physical, emotional, spiritual, social, community, financial and ecological)?
