TEDxUKZN - Dr. Kriben Pillay - A Magic Trick of Perception

Professor Kriben Pillay is acting director of the Leadership Centre, University of KwaZulu-Natal. A Magic Trick of Perception Using personal experience and the metaphor of illusion, the presenter agrees with cognitive science that the personal self is an illusion, buts points to impersonal Being/Consciousness as the ground of existence. The former constructs a sense of separation, while the latter embodies wholeness. All of this is illustrated through story, illusion and an entertaining thought experiment about time. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self- organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self- organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
