Possibilianism at PopTech

I recently spoke at PopTech in Camden, Maine on the limits of science, the problems of false dichotomies, and my new movement of possibilianism:

David Eagleman on Possibilianism from PopTech.

 I was blown away when Andrew Zolli, the director of PopTech, tweeted that this was "one of the best talks ever at PopTech"!
