THE UNIVERSE WITHIN: FROM QUANTUM TO COSMOS - THE 2012 CBC MASSEY LECTURES BY 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.

Visit The Massey Experience website - an online exploration of the ideas, themes, theories and characters that form Neil Turok's Massey Lectures.

IDEAS host Paul Kennedy explores how Spinoza's thoughts on God, the universe, ethics and politics helped ignite the flame that became the Enlightenment.
