What if we can design and print any material?
What if we can connect our brains?
What if we can program organisms and societies?
What if our networks and search engines become autonomous and intelligent?
What if we can stop aging?
What if this all happens at once?
What would that mean for the world of tomorrow?
What if all knowledge is accessible to everyone, all the time?
Are we prepared?
The ten-part television series in conjunction with a dynamic digital environment will show tomorrow's world through the eyes of the greatest thinkers and scientists of our time. They look beyond the boundaries of their discipline to the future state of our knowledge. All the research and film material is being digitized and will become freely available to anyone who wants to use and enrich it at their own discretion. This arena of exchange of knowledge and ideas contribute to a global interactive learning experience.
Thanks to the international and global nature of The Mind of the Universe as a laboratory of ideas and as an open forum for dialogue, UNESCO has decided to give the project official support. Thus it wants to encourage other external parties to contribute. UNESCO also helps to bring the series The Mind of the Universe to everyone in any country in the world.
The way the series is edited enables each broadcastere to remake the series with its own presenter. In the Netherlands the presenter will be Robbert Dijkgraaf, director of the famous IAS (Institute for Advanced Study) in Princeton.
From the start of production in January 2016, people are involved in the project by using social media. During the filming process, more and more images and information will become available that will shape the online environment. The Dutch version of The Mind of the Universe will be ready early 2017. The international version in the spring of 2017.
Each episode of the ten-part series is centered around a typical human quality discussing all the know sciences.
