Stuart Hameroff, a professor at the University of Arizona, will discuss the issue of consciousness in the universe. Has consciousness evolved from biological evolution, or has it, in a sense, been here all the time?

Stuart Hameroff will explain his theory of quantum consciousness, developed in collaboration with Roger Penrose (Oxford University), which connects the geometry of the physical world we live in the brain processes and consciousness.

Afterwards, Andreas Bennetzen will introduce his solo project which goes under the name Andy Benz, where he will be using his Yamaha Silent Bass and mix classical music with jazz and make use of live looping.
