Join us for an insightful investigation into the nature of time itself. Since the ancients, physicists and philosophers have argued that time is not real, that our experience of time passing is just a human illusion in a timeless universe operating on predetermined laws. 

 

Lee Smolin, a senior faculty member and founder of the Perimeter Institute in Theoretical Physics and the bestselling author of The Trouble with Physics and Three Roads To Quantum Gravity, brilliantly shows how this thinking came about, and makes the bold case that time may in fact be the only thing that is real.
