Ideas The Universe Within: From Quantum to Cosmos - Part 5 Nov 16, 2012 | 53:59All 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.

Ideas Player One - Part 1 Oct 13, 2010 | 53:58Player One: What is To Become of Us? by Douglas Coupland. For the first time in their history, the CBC Massey Lectures is a work of fiction.

Sealed in, the four can only talk to each other, examining their lives and the meaning of love. Thick ash falls from the sky. Cell phones don't work. What is to become of us? In the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and J.G. Ballard, Douglas Coupland locates his story and characters in an extreme situation and then pushes the implications as far as possible.
