Flickering Reality: Exploring Ideas in Film and Television
Exploring Alex Garland’s “Devs”
Sunday December 13 at 9:00 PST | 12:00 EST | 18:00 CET
Flickering Reality is a free monthly get-together for the Pari Community to explore films, documentaries and TV series that are thought-provoking, philosophical, and take risks. Join us for presentations followed by discussion. All ideas and suggestions for future get-togethers are welcome. Just send us an email.
Our first get-together in the series will take place on December 13 with James Peat Barbieri examining Alex Garland’s Devs (2020).The 8-part series follows the story of the secret department of a high-tech company, which is developing a quantum computer that will be able to determine the past and the future by analysing data from the present. This session will explore the ideas in physics used in the show, such as Bohm and Everett’s interpretations of Quantum Mechanics, the philosophical implications of living in a deterministic world, and the meaning of faith in science and in the creators of visionary technologies.
This series is free and open to everyone!
