The lecture was presented at the Aviation and Space Museum on Friday Dec 5 2014. Bob explores the questions:

What is the Universe

Where is the Universe

as it relates to the human capacity to perceive Space and Time, and perhaps other dimensions…

Along the way, Bob addresses current research in

  • colour perception and spectral analysis
  • gravity
  • levels of locality
  • ‘EPR’ – (Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen)  Entanglement

Bob is very much  in favour of Observational Astronomy for what it can do to aid our perception. It  is one wide-open  door through which we might be able to ‘see through a glass dimly’…

 

Enjoy!
