On Saturday 12th September I had a great day speaking at the New Scientist 'Instant Expert' masterclass on consciousness. Chaired by Michael Brooks, and held in the wonderful British Library, the other speakers were Patrick Haggard, Amanda Seed, Murray Shanahan, Lara Maister, Adam Zeman. For me the highlight was definitely the lively Q&A session at the end. I left the day with the general feeling I had somehow become a better person. Thanks to New Scientist for organising, and to everyone for coming!
