Living in a Non-Local World: Entanglement Meets Ecology

with Dr. Vandana Shiva

Sunday March 5, 2023
9:00am PST | 12:00pm EST | 5:00pm GMT  |  6:00pm CET

2-hour session

The session is live and you will be sent the RECORDING.

I will discuss the implications of the concept of nonlocality and hidden variables to our understanding of life in the real world. Making a concrete analogy between quantum systems and humane societies reveals a way of being-in-the-world that is not only more Beautiful and True but also Good. I will argue that the revolutionary discoveries of the quantum revolution inform and inspire current revolutions in ecology, agriculture, and politics.
