Eugenia Butler introduces performance artist Rachel Rosenthal and astronomer and Richard Terrile. They discuss different models of the cosmos, evolution, random variation, and our ability to understand. Terrile discusses quantum physics, the Big Bang, the future, and time. Rosenthal discusses illusion, time and how improvisational theater stresses being in the now. The audience asks questions about consciousness, gender, and how much science artists can assimilate. Terrile discusses the separation between the brain and the mind, and the audience becomes agitated.
