The video below is a lecture that physicist Sean Carroll of Caltech gave at the JREF‘s annual Amaz!ng Meeting last summer. In it he describes where particle physics has led us; the easy part is done. We know the rules, we now have to learn how to best play the game. The laws of physics, Carroll points out, have profound things to say about life after death, psychic powers, the idea of a soul, and even the purpose of life. I hope that you enjoy his talk as much as I did.
