Talk on 21 Nov “Man’s Station in the Universe”

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.

Thursday, 21st November, 7-8:30pm
Latimer Room, Old Court, Clare College

The Speaker
Dr. Mehrdad Ehsani is a professor of sustainable energy engineering at Texas A&M University.  He has won numerous U.S. and international honors and awards, and he is the Distinguished Lecturer of several professional societies.  He is the co-author of 17 books, over 350 publications, over 20 patents, and has given numerous invited talks around the world on energy systems, spiritual aspects of technology, and the convergence of scientific and spiritual search over the past three decades.
