A Short Summary:

Humanity faced the Universe since the start of civilization. Slowly, it started understanding how the Universe worked and how we were placed in the Universe. During that 3000 years process, Humanity made 5 major false assumptions that were often “stuck” for a long time.

Over 2 sessions, the Talk will cover the following 5 assumptions and how they were diagnosed and corrected by great scientists. Here are 5 the assumptions:

1) The Earth is at the center of the Universe: geo-centrism
2) The Sun and the Solar System are at the center of the Universe
3) The Milky Way, our galaxy, is at the Center of the Universe and is the Only Galaxy in the Universe
4) Our life as we know it is unique in the Universe and we are alone (Anthropism)
5) The Universe is specifically designed to host humanity (and life as we know it)

Part 1 will cover Assumptions 1 and 2 while Part 2 will present the rest. You do not have to attend Part 1 to enjoy Part 2.
