    #3 - Ian Glendinning. Science and the Beyond.

    In this episode we are looking at how Science is slowly changing.
    We'll be talking with Cybernetics Expert and Philosopher Ian Glendinning about science, emergence, Robert Pirsig's "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", combining arts & sciences, the nature of the brain hemispheres, and Iain McGilchrist's "The Matter with Things".
    One of the main threads will be the balance between science and what lies beyond, and how this might be reflected in deep ontology and the architecture of our brains.
