Creativity and ingenuity are the qualities that set our species apart, argues neuroscientist David Eagleman. ‘Obviously, a little bit of credit needs to go to the opposable thumb and larynx, but fundamentally it’s about this massive mashup of ideas that we have … Most of them stink, but occasionally, something gets generated that works for our society.’ Eagleman has dedicated his life to understanding the inner workings of the brain, through his books 'The Brain: The Story of You' and 'Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain' and the television series 'The Brain with David Eagleman'. For the past few years, the Stanford University professor has turned his attention to the link between the brain and creativity. With composer Anthony Brandt he’s co-authored a book, 'The Runaway Species: How Human Creativity Remakes the World', which explores the key components and possibilities of creativity through the lens of neuroscience. The pair propose that there are three key elements to all acts of human creativity: bending, blending and breaking. At the Athenaeum Theatre, Eagleman joins Natasha Mitchell to expand on these ideas, explaining how the human brain can remake the world.

Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it. How does this happen? According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we're all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it "reality." Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.

What is Time? Tackle one of the greatest problems in all of science—the nature of time itself—in "Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time," a groundbreaking course by Dr. Sean Carroll, one of the foremost researchers in this field. In this second video from the 24-video series, Professor Carroll approaches time from a philosophical perspective. “Presentism” holds that the past and future are not real; only the present moment is real. However, the laws of physics appear to support “eternalism”—the view that all of the moments in the history of the universe are equally real.
