Adelaide Festival of Ideas session, Old Methodist Meeting Hall, 2:30pm, Saturday 8th October, 2011. Chaired by Chris Burrald, poetry read by Stephen Lawrence.. We live in a world that modern physics claims may involve many more than four dimensions. Our consciousness appears to have evolved from a process whereby sunlight split water to create energy. This talk explores why fully understanding that process is now our greatest scientific challenge and sets that in the context of what might lie ahead for human consciousness and intelligence in this (or other) universes.
