  2. Runnin’ Down a Dream: How to Succeed and Thrive in a Career You Love - Bill Gurley 9/14/2018

    In September of 2018, I had the opportunity to share my thoughts on how people should think about their career journey. This is something I had been thinking about for some time, and I am quite thankful to the McCombs School at the University of Texas for giving me the opportunity to share this presentation.

  3. Buddha’s Message: Have Some fun! Bob Thurman

    http://www.scienceandnonduality.com

    Bob Thurman delights the audience at SAND 2018 with his lighthearted approach to the wisdom and the message of Buddha. He criticizes materialism, calling it a decision, one which limits our responsibility for our actions, personal and global, by confirming the belief that this is all there is, that there is nothing after life - so it doesn’t matter, because we won’t be here to face the consequences.

    Science And NonDuality is a community inspired by timeless wisdom, informed by cutting-edge science, and grounded in personal experience. We come together in an openhearted exploration to further our individual and collective evolution. New ways of being emerge. We embody our interconnectedness and celebrate our humanity.

  5. Consciousness and The Interface Theory of Perception, Donald Hoffman

    Despite substantial efforts by many researchers, we still have no scientific theory of how brain activity can create, or be, conscious experience. This is troubling, since we have a large body of correlations between brain activity and consciousness, correlations normally assumed to entail that brain activity creates conscious experience. Here I explore a solution to the mind-body problem that starts with the converse assumption: these correlations arise because consciousness creates brain activity, and indeed creates all objects and properties of the physical world. To this end, I develop two theses. The interface theory of perception states that perceptual experiences do not match or approximate properties of the objective world, but instead provide a simplified, species-specific, user interface to that world. Conscious realism states that the objective world consists of conscious agents and their experiences; these can be mathematically modeled and empirically explored in the normal scientific manner.

    In support of the interface theory of perception, I present Monte Carlo simulations of evolutionary games in which perceptual strategies that see the truth compete with perceptual strategies that do not see the truth but are instead tuned to fitness. The result is that natural …

  6. Timothy Heath - China’s New Governing Party Paradigm

    For the first time since its founding in 1921, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has adopted a new paradigm for its role in China. Abandoning its former identity as a ‘revolutionary party’, the CCP now regards itself as a ‘governing party’ committed to meeting the diverse needs of its people and realizing China’s revitalization as a great power. To enhance its ability to realize these aims, the CCP has enacted extensive political and ideological reforms. Central to that effort are changes to how the party develops and oversees strategy and policy. Few studies are available on the CCP’s adoption of this new identity and of its political implications. Timothy Heath’s new book, China’s New Governing Party Paradigm: Political Renewal and the Pursuit of National Rejuvenation, remedies that oversight by explaining the historic context, drivers, and meaning of the governing party paradigm.

    Timothy Heath is Senior International and Defense Analyst at the RAND Corporation and a recognized expert on Chinese strategy and political-military topics. He served for five years as the senior analyst in the United States Pacific Command (USPACOM) China Strategic Focus Group and has over fifteen years of experience in the US government as a specialist on China. Mr. Heath has authored many ar…
