I have long hoped that there would be, at some time, a filmed presentation that really got across my ideas in a dynamic and powerful way. I have now discovered that such a recording exists. On the 11th of May 2013 I was invited back to do a talk for Edinburgh’s Public Information Group. This took place at the Teviot at Edinburgh University. I have to admit that I had forgotten that this was actually videoed.
I have just spent an hour or so watching it …. and I genuinely believe that this film is fantastic. I was clearly “on fire” that day and I am of the opinion that this really conveys what my talks are like. Please take into account that this was totally unscripted …. I just go with the flow. I am also of the opinion that this presentation encapsulates everything that I am about and stands as a perfect explanation of where I am with regards to my research …. indeed I feel that this talk is the culmination of my career … I will find it almost impossible to better this …. conscious sentience … and that consciousness itself is a pointer to the real answers to the ultimate questions.
