This lighthearted David Eagleman keynote speech proposes embracing a new philosophical method when it comes to innovation and the exploration of the origins of the human race and the planet they inhabit.
Discussions regarding the mysteries of the universe, from its creation to its current state, often lead to heated debates that take either the side of science or religion -- with nothing existing in between. The speaker, an author and neuroscientist, discusses the need for a new system of understanding that fills in the gaps between science and religion to allow for a more holistic way of approaching uncertainties in life.
The speaker's philosophical model, which he has appropriately named 'Possibilianism,' is geared toward compiling all of the tools that humans have at their disposal to take discovery to new levels.
