Why Clément was invited to TEDxEindhoven
Based on our current scientific understanding of the universe as we know it, it is about 13.8 billion years old, give or take a couple of million. Over those 13 or so billion years, all kinds of fascinating, mesmerising, beautiful and terrifying phenomena have emerged. Our human capability to have thoughts, ideas or lightbulb moments is, as far as we know, unique in the universe. To provide some perspective on our lightbulb moments, we invited Clément to share his thoughts and philosophies on the evolution of the cosmos.
What will Clément speak about
A cosmological perspective on our human intelligence and our Lightbulb Moments here on earth.
