David Eagleman

This short snippet is brilliant. David Eagleman is both a neuroscientist and a writer of fiction (great combo) as well as a Guggenheim Fellow. And, he’s a great explainer of things.

I’ve been following him since I heard him discuss his book SUM on NPR’s OnPoint with Tom Ashbrook: Envisioning the Afterlife which I blogged about here in 2009.

Here’s Eagleman at PopTech a few years back on Possibilianism, “a new philosophy that simultaneously embraces a scientific toolbox while exploring new, unconsidered uncertainties about the world around us.”
