Here is a wonderful discussion (from TED talks) about the relation of science and spirituality--in effect, Jeff Lieberman condenses the essence of "enlightenment" into language all can understand, explaining in terms of neurology and physics what "we" actually are as beings who are part of a larger reality. I strongly recommend it.
The following was found on his website. Obviously, Jeff is a "Renaissance" man, conversant with all the arts. He reminds me of Leonardo de Vinci, who was a master of inventions of various kinds, and developed theories well ahead of his time, as well as being a great artist.
Jeff Lieberman explores the connections between the arts, sciences, education, passion, creativity, and the potential future of human consciousness. He hosts 'Time Warp' on the Discovery Channel, using technology to see beyond the limits of our normal human perception. He composes music in the duo gloobic, and has performed in Carnegie Hall. He shows technological sculptures around the world, to bring people an emotional and mystical connection with science and the universe. Having finished four degrees at MIT (BS: Physics, Math, MS: Mech. Engineering, Media Arts and Sciences), he is exploring the applications of technology to evolving and shifting human consciousness.
