Man’s Station in the Universe: A Scientist’s Spiritual Journey
A talk by Dr. Mehrdad Ehsani
The Universe is very simple: it is mostly made of hydrogen, helium and energy. However, the earth contains amazing complexity that is nearly unique in the universe. Exceptional circumstances have made possible organic chemistry and life on earth, leading to the most complex structure in the universe: the human brain. The energy consumption of the human brain per kilogram is 100,000 times the energy per kilogram that our sun can produce. The purpose of this miraculous combination of events is human consciousness and spiritual awareness. We will explore this physical-spiritual phenomenon in this talk.
