The seven layers of maturity will then be described: baby, toddler, child, teen, adult, elder, and mature elder.

Ontology is the branch of metaphysics dealing with the nature of being. As our epistemic sources are increasingly systematized, as top-level abstract concepts with concrete implications proliferate, as we become increasingly entrenched in a post-post-...-post-modern milieu, what is the effect on the foundations of our metaphysical substrate.

The spiral into complete digitization of our daily lives is creating micro-representations at the same time that our global awareness has alarmingly brought our attention to apocalyptic macro-objects such as global warming, globalization, international terrorism, the global trend towards authoritarianism, etc.

Topics to be discussed:

Please join us for our monthly storytelling evening.

The theme this month is 'Gratitude.' Let's end the year reflecting on what we're grateful for, moments where we should've shown some gratitude, and times we were able to be what others were grateful for. This is a space to learn about and engage with members of your community in a deeper way.
