Time To Tell: a look at how we tick

Wednesday 27 February 2019
19:00 to 20:30

Time seems to flash by when we are enjoying ourselves, and slows to a crawl when we are bored. Why? Does time exist, or is it an illusion? Does it flow? Is it linear? How real are our memories? When is now? These are just some of the questions asked by Ronald Green in his research into what time is for us, what it does to us and for us, and how we live and react to it in our daily lives.

Ronald will take a fresh look into what we have been told about time, while delving into the philosophical and scientific ramifications and the centrality of our place within it all. Challenging what is naturally taken for granted, he will forge a link between philosophy and science, blowing away the cobwebs that obscure both. With time as the core of existence, Ronald’s contention that ‘now’ does not exist opens up questions as to the ‘reality’ of the past, the potential reality of the future, and leads us to central issues of Reality, Truth, Knowledge, Objectivity, the Self and Consciousness. In brief, a journey that goes to the heart of what it means to be human.
