11/13 Bohm Dialogue — Automation and Us

220px-shadow_hand_bulb_largeAll in all, I don’t think robots and greater automation can bring about a utopian world as I imagined it would as a kid 50 years ago.  – Stanley Druckenmiller

Last month we had a very fruitful discussion about how we feel about Christian elements in UU services and more generally what form we each would like UU worship services to take.  The topic for this month’s salon is Automation and Us.

Are we worried about it? Will machines take all our jobs and would that be a good thing or a bad thing? How will people earn a living? Are robots (potentially) people too? Where is it all leading?

Join us to listen to what others think and to share what you think.  The Religious Exploration Salon is a group that meets 3rd Sundays to discuss various topics in the format called Bohm Dialogue which emphasizes respectful listening and balanced, synergistic sharing. For more details about how Dialogue works, please see our January article.

Everyone is welcome. You are welcome to think about the topic beforehand but no preparation is required or expected — come as you are with whatever thoughts/intuitions you have, ready to listen, learn and contribute.  We next meet Sunday Nov 13th at 7pm in the Brackett Room.

Contact Paul Reising, Tom Yelton or Jan Hardenbergh for more information.
