Jason Silva

Jason Silva

Described by The Atlantic as “part Timothy Leary, part Ray Kurzweil, and part Neo from the Matrix,” Jason Silva is blazing new trails in the ways that people conceive spirituality, technology, and transcendence. During his youth in Caracas, Venezuela, Silva found art and ideas were the only way to distract himself from death, or the impermanence of the human condition. After studying film and philosophy in the University of Miami, he made “Textures of Selfhood,” a documentary on hedonism and transcendence that garnered him the attention of producers for Al Gore’s cable network Current TV. Silva was a presenter and producer there from 2005 to 2011, but eventually he left television to try his luck with a series of online short films, Philosophical Espresso Shots. These films were a game-changer. Read more.

Dr. Rudolph Tanzi

Dr. Rudolph Tanzi

One of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential People in 2016, professor of neurology, genetics and aging, Dr. Rudy Tanzi is leading the change in research on modification of genes. In this show, Dr. Chopra and Dr. Tanzi elaborate on how your perceptual experience, your lifestyle, essentially your mind and behavior, influence everything at a cellular level, your gene expression. Your body is so responsive to your experiences, such as exercise and meditation, that we have immediate genetic changes in our brain based on the way we live our lives.

Max Tegmark

Max Tegmark

Life, Max Tegmark tells Deepak, is the single most important thing in the universe. Without life, he says, without consciousness, without our ability to be self-aware, the universe would be a waste of space. Humanity ought not to feel insignificant because of our small size, because the notion of the beauty of everything else, only exists as a product of our perceptions. Read more.

Cassandra Vieten

Cassandra Vieten

President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and Executive Director of Research at IONS, Cassandra Vieten discusses with Dr. Chopra how earth’s despair is created by humanity’s boundaries and the limitations in our human consciousness. The core seed of the world’s religious and spiritual traditions is based on consciousness without boundaries and science is beginning to converge with that wisdom reaching a nexus point. This show details how we will find the next human evolutionary leap at that nexus point.

Cori Bargmann

Cori Bargmann

Elected to the National Academy Of Sciences, Dr. Cori Bargmann’s overwhelming curiosity has made her one of the top scientists in the neurological field known for her work on the genetic and neural circuit mechanisms of behavior. This show is a discussion of how the brain's biology in relation to genetics, environment and experience, interact to give rise to flexible behaviors; whether a honeybee brain or human brain. A fascinating conversation shedding scientific light on the connectivity of our universe.

Michio Kaku

Michio Kaku

Theoretical physicists are not known for their rock star appeal. Scientists are not inherently cool by our modern standards because so often the average person does not understand what it is they do. Michio Kaku is working to change that and in the process, he has become a bit of a superstar in his own right. Michio and Deepak Chopra discuss his illustrious career, his book, and the conscious mind; an interest that they both share. Read more.
