TED_Talks_Roanoke_2015-03-04

Cost: FREE!

This Wednesday at noon, join us for weekly TED Talks at Compact Cinema!

Humans, ever-meaning-making creatures, will never cease to wonder: Why are things the way they are? Why do I think the way I do? And what does it all mean? Welcome to Session 7 of TED2014, in which speakers will ask big questions about how we — and the world — work.

Why is there something rather than nothing? In his book Why Does the World Exist? Jim Holt dares to ask. Using a deck of cards and other simple props, Helder Guimarães gets up close to play with your perceptions and preconceptions.

Only at TEDTalks Roanoke – join with inquiring others, lunch while you watch if you like, & enjoy a quiet viewing room. For more information: Gloria at email – tedtalksroanoke (at) hotmail (dot) com
