Have you ever thought to yourself “I wonder- when did the Universe start?” or “How did I end up here?” - then you’re not alone. Come join us as we explore ideas and questions that have interested nearly everybody in the world, for thousands of years.

You will explore Space and Time, the Future Digital Age, the deepest insides of your brain and much much more through mind-blowing sound and visual FX, amazing Hip-Hop, RnB, Dance and Rock/Indie music, live performance and incredible surround-sound.

This fascinating and funny lecture will open up the World of Science and Technology to you, showing you how everyday things you might not expect, can be used to help explain some of the most interesting ideas ever….the birth and death of the universe, what it means to be you, the meaning of life and the future for us all based on the technologies we are developing.
