Ed Hessler

Closer to Truth presents a short discussion on a big question: Is consciousness deepest reality, the ground of being of the cosmos? The interviewer is Robert Lawrence Kuhn who interviews Leonard Mlodinow, a theoretical physicist and mathematician, screenwriter and author.

One word you will hear is a philosophical term, "qualia." I think as Mlodinow talks about it, without defining it, that you will get an idea of what it means and perhaps deepen it. Wiki defines this idea "as instances of subjective, conscious experience."

Here is the interview (8m 19s). There is information about the people below the video. And the video is short enough that you can easily listen to it more than once.
