    #3 - Science and the Beyond, with Cybernetics Expert IAN GLENDINNING

    #3 - Science and the Beyond, with Cybernetics Expert IAN GLENDINNING

    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.
    Ian Glendinning's blog/website is here: psybertron.org

    #1 - Author and Family Doctor JAMES WILLIS.

    A wide-ranging conversation about how technology entered the National Health Service in Britain in the 1980s, and how this reflected a deeper trend in modern societies - with the perils of technology, an unbalanced society, but also the enormous potential if we can manage to rebalance the culture once again.
    We'll also talk about how several aspects of James' book "The Paradox of Progress" from 1995 have been confirmed by recent brain research and brain science in Iain McGilchrist's "The Matter with Things".
