Welcome to Dorset Humanists

Dorset Humanists is a welcoming group for humanists, atheists and agnostics who seek to live ethical and fulfilling lives on the basis of reason and humanity. We meet in Bournemouth for informative and enjoyable presentations, debates and discussions on a wide range of subjects including ethics, science, religion, philosophy, politics, our environment and much more. We also organise regular social events. This website [January 2019] does not include our Short Talks or Walks - see https://www.meetup.com/Dorset-Humanists/ instead.

The Art of Reality Bending by James Brown


When? Wednesday, February 27, 2019, 7.30pm

Where? Green House Hotel, 4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX

In this talk, James Brown will argue that we all begin our lives with a falsehood: the belief that we can perceive reality objectively. The truth is we can’t – we only have access to what he calls a ‘metareality’ which consists of our perceptions of reality, not reality itself.

He will demonstrate how easily these perceptions can be manipulated not only by demagogues, evangelists, and professional tricksters but also by ourselves.

James describes himself as a ‘professional opportunist’. He is a magician, pickpocket, hypnotist, lecturer, and corporate trainer.

"The world famous Magic Circle awarded him the title of 'The Best Close Up Magician in the UK', a trophy he is quietly very proud of." http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7345
