Max Tegmark’s keynote speech from the 2014 AHA Conference 2014

I found Max’s presentation here to be inspirational and optimistic. It’s vast far future vision that presents a science based alternative to the notion that humans are unimportant in the scheme of the universe.

[su_quote]We humans have again and again underestimated not only the size of the cosmos—a planet, a solar system, a galaxy, a universe, maybe a hierarchy of parallel universes—but we’ve also repeatedly underestimated the power of the human mind to understand our cosmos.  [/su_quote]
