"As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future." - Julian Huxley
In The Mind of the Universe, the greatest scientists of our era illuminate the world of tomorrow. They take us into the future, transgressing the borders of their disciplines.
All of the research material and footage will be freely available for everyone to use and modify, to make sure The Mind of the Universe contributes to the growth of our knowledge.
Because of The Mind of the Universe's global nature, UNESCO decided to officially support the series. The open nature of The Mind of the Universe allows every broadcaster in the world to broadcast this series, in any form desired. Robbert Dijkgraaf is the host of the Dutch series. The Dutch version of The Mind of the Universe will be aired in early 2017.
The Mind of the Universe consists of ten episodes. In each episode, a typical human quality is central, in which the scientists and their sciences are embedded.
