A Momentary Flow

Updating Worldviews one World at a time

Participate in a daylong exploration of human nature in the light of cutting edge science, philosophy, and evolution.
The experience of being human can be exciting or stressful, fun or depressing, but most often it’s simply confusing. How can we make sense of our world with all its pain and suffering, its delights and disappointments? For most of human history we’ve been trying to understand our lives based on metaphysical, religious, and supernatural concepts.
Then the Age of Enlightenment ushered in science and Darwin’s remarkable theory of evolution—a powerful new way to look at ourselves and the world. Now disciplines such as cognitive neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, genetics, anthropology, and philosophy are delivering fascinating new findings which have the potential to radically remake the way we see ourselves. Based on these scientific insights, a more comprehensive view of human nature is now emerging. (via Being Human 2013 | Being Human)
