Absurdity of Certainty

This is an excerpt from one of the presentations featured in the Pari Center’s event Science, Art and the Sacred, in Pari from August 29 to September 4, 2019.

with Jena Axelrod

Why are we certain in a chaotic world? The upcoming documentary Absurdity of Certainty explores the illusion of control and certainty in historical scientific context with quantum physicist turned philosopher Dr. F. David Peat. Join Director, Jena Axelrod, at a friends and family screening in Pari this September. Jena was a mentee of Dr. F. David Peat from the first Pari Center course in 2001, through her graduate thesis work in Transpersonal Psychology, and their pre-pre-production youtube playlist Dialogues with David. New Yorkers may recall their inadvertently offensive joint lecture as artist and scientist at CUNY. David, his family, and the town of Pari have been “very generous with their time” in helping to research and produce Absurdity of Certainty so it is “very special to return” for this screening. 

Jena joined Ideal Prediction as Director of Sales in 2018 bringing 20 years of experience in launching innovative financial market offerings from the first electronic treasury trading system, LibertyDirect, to the first centrally-cleared FX market, FXMarketSpace. Jena directs and produces the upcoming documentary Absurdity of Certainty on the rise of certainty in the Western worldview, based on the life and ideas of Dr. F. David Peat. Jena has served on the Board of The Pari Center since 2016.
