In this brave new era of “fake news” and “alternative facts,” it is becoming ever more difficult to understand what is happening and how we adapt to changes all around us. We are bombarded by misinformation designed to incite fear and xenophobia.Conspiracy theories abound as some dread economic collapse and political upheaval while others anticipate ET disclosure and the rapture. Every day seems more chaotic as we too often feel helpless in shaping the future that we want.
But chaos is also an ideal time for evaluating options, making choices and experiencing rapid growth. Charting one’s path requires assessing your beliefs to see if they serve or blind your search for the truth. This presentation will explore what we think we know and what techniques can be used for discerning what is really happening behind the curtain.It will include predictions received from multiple sources and consider their validity to a future that is always a moving target.
Paul Sperry is an interdisciplinary scientist with a passion for recognizing universal patterns between seemingly disparate disciplines and schools of thought. He understands that science, like religion, builds upon truths established over time, yet realizes both avenues risk missing revelations when they rigidly defend their belief systems as sacrosanct. He is thus willing to consider all possibilities and follow where the data and grounded discernment lead.
Paul’s traditional training includes degrees in chemistry and systems science. He worked for 20 years at the National Center for Atmospheric Research where he explored acid rain, Arctic haze, stratospheric ozone and pollutant photochemistry. He left NCAR to become Executive Director of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) encompassing over 500 researchers, faculty, students and staff at the University of Colorado. He left campus in 2006 to investigate Earth energy phenomena at remote sites around the world. He also co-founded the local chapter of the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) that has sponsored 100 talks over the past decade. Paul and his wife, Maryann, now live in Longmont, Colorado, where he continues his research. His website is www.PaulSperryBoulder.com.
