A Virtual Talk by Dr. Laurance Doyle
If you were not able to join the live talk recording will be available by February 8 on the following page: https://www.discoverybound.org/resources/inspiring-talks/
The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) has so far only looked for technology in space. But is there a way to tell if the message itself is intelligent? Dr. Doyle will share some of his research into the communication system of the humpback whales with the idea of coming up with an intelligence filter for SETI. He will also share a bit of the metaphysics behind his involvement with this research.
Sunday, January 31st, 2021 at 4:00pm PST, 5:00 MST, 6:00 CST, 7:00 EST
45 min Zoom Webinar with time for Q&A following the talk.

Ingrid Peschke is a lifelong Christian Scientist and has been in the fulltime public practice of Christian Science for 18 years. Ingrid grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area where she developed her love of hiking, mountain biking, and outdoor activities.

There, Ingrid began her career as a teacher in the public school system. Ingrid has three children, a daughter and son who are currently attending Principia College, and an older son who graduated from the college three years ago.
She became a practitioner in 2003 shortly after she and her family moved to the Boston area for her work with The Mother Church. She spent 15 years working for the organization both as an editor for The Christian Science Publishing Society and as Committee on Publication for Massachusetts. She and her husband moved to North Carolina in 2019.
Ingrid has always enjoyed writing for the Christian Science periodicals and is a regular contributor to The Christian Science Monitor’s religious perspective column. She devotes her days to the public practice of Christian Science healing and as a part-time consultant/editor for The Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston.
