2012 CBC Massey Lecturer Neil Turok
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.
