This hour-long talk could conceivably be called “queerer than we can suppose”, as it is a poetic and mystical meditation on the strangeness of the universe (if we can call it that); the wonder and danger that is mankind; on stories; on literature; on technology, and much else besides. It is a talk that is particularly concerned with the disjuncture between the world and our scientific knowing of it. And the human need for humility in this regard. More info available here.
