DB Outreach Virtual Talk by Laurance Doyle @ Zoom Webinar
Jan 31 @ 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm

Can Humpback Whales help us with the search for extraterrestrial intellIgence:

A Virtual Talk by Dr. Laurance Doyle

What:

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?  We will share research into the communication system of the humpback whales with the idea of coming up with an intelligence filter for SETI.  We will also share a bit of the metaphysics behind this research.

When:

Sunday, January 31st, 2021 at 4:00pm PST, 5:00 MST, 6:00 CST, 7:00 EST

30-45 min Zoom Webinar with time for Q&A following the talk.

who:

Teens, 20s/30s, Adults, friends, and anyone interested in science and/or spirituality!
