Our sister group, “SEEKERS Anonymous – DC Metro”, will be meeting again on Wednesday, October 2, for Week 8 of the “Peeling the Cosmic Onion: A Journey of Spiritual Transformation” series! The topic will be “The Nature of Reality, Part 2”.
Part 1 of our mini-series on “The Nature of Reality” took us on a whirlwind tour of Quantum Physics, examined the possibility of extra dimensions and even dabbled in the Standard Model & the mechanics of the Higgs Field! While certainly educational, the physical perspective can only take us so far. As Alan Lightman says in his book “Searching for Stars on an Island in Maine”: “We scientists do not pretend to know what ‘reality’ is. That slippery idea is either unknowable or a resident of the land of philosophy.”
Part 2 will now dive squarely into the Philosophical domain. We’ll be discussing the Allegory of Plato’s Cave, Don Hoffman’s “Interface Theory” of reality, and asking that fundamental question that always persists, like a splinter in our minds, “What is the Matrix?” …But seriously, we will talk about the Matrix. 🙂
Please consider joining us at Ridgetop Coffee & Tea in Sterling, starting at 7:00pm on Wednesday, October 2, as we conclude our two-part exploration of the Nature of Reality.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you on the 2nd!
