First, please note that this time is different than our usual second Wednesday of the month schedule. For this session, we will begin the book, The Case Against Reality: How Evolution Hid the Truth from our Eyes (2019) by Donald Hoffman. This book is available in paperback for less than $20 new and can be had as an ebook for about $10. For the 22nd we'll read through chapter 4.

While the book is primarily an examination of the mystery of consciousness, it goes beyond that, bringing in ideas from other fields to structure a radical, but plausible, theory of perception. Is what you see what there is? Not necessarily. Virtual reality? Intriguing. Note, however, that even if our meetings are really totally different from what you think they are, don't expect any refunds.
