    Arthur M. Jackson, longtime Humanist Community member and leader, will for the first time provide a PowerPoint presentation about his book How to Live the Good Life: A User’s Guide for Modern Humans. This book is the result of over fifty years of struggle to find a naturalistic model for ethics and morality able to provide existential and emotional support to the individual. He was looking for a fundamental understanding of life and the world in which we find ourselves, based on the science paradigm rather than tradition, authority, or cultural relativism. He proposes that this has led him to a science of religion and ethics capable of supporting a religion of wisdom.

        Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Psychology, and the study of Memory and Consciousness are all focusing on understanding the nature, behaviour and living reality of our home; the human mind, living within our human brain. Weighing 3lb, being 6.5″x5.5″x3.5″ in size, having 2% of our body’s weight, consuming 20% of our body’s energy, containing around 100 billion neurons and establishing around 100 trillion connections, the human brain is, or should I say most likely you are, perceiving and reading and interpreting these words within its neural networks right now. What does this relatively new form of life, this highly self aware and complex human brain, bring to Earth, to our Solar system, and to this Universe as a whole, so far as we know? And how do we find joy within it and do well by it? I intend to share new scientific insights into the structure and processes of our memories in mind, and then offer some of my own thoughts and theories regarding the very nature and form that our human minds take within reality as a whole, and in doing so, seek to propose some answers to these questions. Martin Squibbs, longtime Humanist Community member, will discuss these questions.

                    What foundation did Carl Sagan create in 1980 with “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage”, and how did Neil deGrasse Tyson and others improve upon that foundation with “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” in 2014? One might have thought at Sagan’s time that we had reached an incredible frontier in our understanding of the universe, but in fact in the decades that followed, tremendous advances in particle physics, astrophysics, astronomy, and revolutionary theories in cosmology opened new doors and raised even deeper questions about our place in the universe. We will explore these developments and discuss “what’s new in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology” by considering Cosmos 1980 versus Cosmos 2014. Paul Salazar is a lifelong amateur astronomer, blogger and public speaker on the topic of astronomy. Paul has given talks at the California Academy of Sciences, the Exploratorium, and CuriOdyssey, and is an occasional guest on KGO, KFOG and KALW. He is a member of the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers and gives ‘star talks’ at events throughout the Bay Area. Paul is a graduate of the Stanford University School of Engineering and the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and when he is not out under the stars he can be found working as an executive at Hazelcast, a Palo Alto-based startup. Paul lives in San Francisco.
