Presentation by Paul Wathen. Existence can be thought of as a four-dimensional metaphysical space in which human consciousness is the lynchpin. This model has profound implications for discovering who we are, and it also leads to some crucial paradoxes. Unraveling them leads to a new understanding of how we’re all interconnected, and to a powerful way of understanding why we exist at all. Mr. Wathen has worked as an editor, television production manager, and as a certified public accountant for 30 years. Eight years ago, he was diagnosed with cancer.
