Coleridge and the Imagination + The Copenhagen Principle; How the mind controls matter.
by Sarah Golsby-Smith & Ron Winestock
Coleridge famously defined imagination as the human mind’s replication of the divine creation of the world. In this pyrotechnic talk, Sarah unfolds Coleridge’s extraordinary grasp of human creativity – and how we mirror the divine – through his touching introspective poem ‘Frost at Midnight’. This poem is both a theological tour de force, as well as one of the great pieces of literature on the creative dynamic. Sarah completes the picture with her dynamic and passionate delivery.
Ron’s talk (42MINS) is a twin to Sarah’s talk on the Imagination. Ron takes us through the extraordinary insights of quantum theory which has put the mind and the human being back at the centre of reality. He picks apart the brutish assumptions of materialism, and shows how it looks very much like the world of matter, and ‘solidity’ arranges itself in direct response to the human faculty of perception. This does indeed make people the masters of reality not cogs in the cosmic machine.
