The Universe, Creativity and You (August 3rd seminar)
Do we live in a world of scarcity and limits? Or do we live in a world of creative potential? Is humanity a closed system or an open system?
This question has animated the thinking of scientists and philosophers for thousands of years and strikes at the very heart of the nature of humanity and the essential character of the Universe our species was born into.
During the symposium held on August 3rd at Montreal’s Concordia University, several presentations were given to provide thought provoking information designed to kindle the flames of philosophical thought, and scientific wonder for all ages.
