Time, Mathematics, and the Mind of God
August 10, 2016
The Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination presented "Time, Mathematics, and the Mind of God," a panel discussion on Wednesday, August 10, 2016. The event highlighted personal perspectives from working scientists and a leading science-fiction author regarding what science has to say about some of our deepest cosmic mysteries. How did time begin in our universe? Why does mathematics work so well to describe the physical world? How does this all connect to the most ancient of theological questions?
Discussants were Prof. Brian Keating (Physics, UC San Diego), Dr. Andrew Friedman (Physics/Astronomy, MIT), and Dr. David Brin (Hugo and Nebula award-winning author).
