Neil Theise event

A Bureau Fundraising Event!

Does mind make the world? In his lively, conversational way, Dr. Neil Theise explores the nature of consciousness and its relationship to us and to the cosmos through the three lenses of contemporary science, Western philosophy, and diverse metaphysical systems.

From this, he will lead us to an integrative model called Fundamental Awareness as the substratum from which the world emanates, providing a set of concepts to potentiate cross-talk between these varied world-views.

Neil Theise is a physician-scientist, complexity theorist, contemplative (senior student of Roshi Enkyo O’hara, Village Zendo), and now (apparently!) philosopher. He is a diagnostic liver pathologist at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center in NYC. He is considered a pioneer of adult stem cell plasticity with publications in the highest level scientific journals such as Science, Nature, and Cell. Those studies have taken him further and deeper into the nature of existence, a journey which he will be exploring in this talk.
