This week on Ideas: an encore presentation of The 2012 CBC Massey Lectures by Neil Turok


The Universe Within: From Quantum to Cosmos

All the technologies we use and depend on are the products of the amazing human mind. Our curiosity drives us to seek out the underlying laws of the universe, and the more we learn the better our lives become. But we're arriving at an impasse, says physicist Neil Turok: the more we learn, the more contradictory the laws seem to be. We need new ideas and new ways of thinking to go beyond the horizon.

The 2012 CBC Massey Lectures by Neil Turok is available for download by purchase from iTunes. Links to individual lectures are provided below, along with streamed excerpts. To give you a sample of what's in store, the entire Lecture 5, The Opportunity of All Time, a thrilling synthesis of the lectures and conclusion to the entire series, is available free to be streamed below.
