What is Reality, Really?

Fabric of the Cosmos

By John Johanssen

We have all been deceived; our perceptions of time and space have sometimes led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe—that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that our universe is the only universe—just might be wrong. With each step we have discovered that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize—a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected.

All events are in Shelter Theater, Vicente Guerrero 4

This week at Shelter Theater we will be questioning the essence of reality. On Sunday, November 6, at 5pm, we present Fabric of the Cosmos: A Quantum Leap. This program explains some of the weirdest aspects of quantum mechanics: uncertainty and entanglement. Despite the absurdity of these behaviors, they have been confirmed time and again. The application of these theories may make teleportation and quantum computers possible. We’ll discuss how “the impossible” is real!

Wonders of the Universe on Wednesday, November 9, at 5pm: Professor Brian Cox goes in search of humanity’s very essence to answer the biggest questions of all: what are we? And where do we come from? This film is the story of matter—the stuff of which we are all made. Brian reveals how our origins are entwined with the lifecycle of the stars. We’ll discuss what it all means.

The Choice 2016 on Friday, November 4, at 5pm: Award-winning “Frontline” producer Michael Kirk goes behind the headlines to investigate what has shaped two of the most polarizing presidential candidates in modern history. He looks at where the least liked candidates in history came from, how they might lead, and why they want one of the most difficult jobs imaginable. This critically-acclaimed special draws on dozens of interviews from those who know the candidates best. After the documentary we will have our final pre-vote discussion of what may be the strangest election in US history.

Quest for the Lost Maya on Friday, November 11, at 5pm: The Maya’s soaring pyramids, monumental cities, and mythical mastery of astronomy and mathematics have spurred generations of explorers on a quest to understand them. In the past decade, researchers have made a series of startling discoveries that reveal a gaping hole in our understanding of the Maya. Discussion of this lost civilization to follow.
