Does Cosmic Fine Tuning Demand Explanation? (#1208) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

The universe works for us because of deep physical laws. But if the values of these laws would much change, then all we see and know could not exist.

Why Obsess About Free Will? (#1209) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Free will probes consciousness, examines what it means to pick, choose, select, decide. But some say that 'free will' is just a trick of the brain.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

What Is Ultimate Reality? (#1301) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

What's the deepest nature of things? Our world is complex, filled with so much stuff. But down below, what's fundamental? Only the physical world? Or anything nonphysical?

Upcoming Broadcasts:

What Is Consciousness? (#1302) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Consciousness is what we know best and explain least. It is the inner subjective experience of what it feels like to see red or smell garlic or hear Beethoven. Consciousness is baffling.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Is This God? (#1303) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Can humans probe God? Can we inquire into God's essence and nature? Is God at all knowable? Or forever beyond human understanding? Let's be bold in questioning God.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Will The Universe Ever End? (#1304) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

In the far, far future, what happens to planets, stars, galaxies, black holes? What's the 'Big Rip' and the 'Big Crunch'? And if 'multiple universes' exist, if one universe ends, do others begin?
