Creating a Global Event College

“But what if matter, ground and existence is nothing solid, fixed, dead forever, but a living and creative event? If this is so, it would mean that “the real stuff” out of which it is all made is the stuff of becoming, evolution, and creative emergence. Entering the event means therefore that we enter the vortex of real and creative life; we are invited to become co-creators in the drama of evolution, and not only detached external spectators.” Yeshayahu Ben-Aharon, The Event in Science, History, Philosophy & Art (2011) The Global Event College strives to demonstrate how we can grasp and actualize the Event’s creative forces and express them through contemporary language and concepts in cultural and social life. We recognize and build on the contributions of many who have explored and charted the essence of The Event and the meeting with the Other. Rudolf Steiner’s research into human cognition has been of fundamental importance to the College faculty. A second foundation has been the comprehensive synthesis of thought and research on the Event presented by Yeshayahu Ben-Aharon in his work on The Event in Science, History, Philosophy and Art. Above all, we root our work in our own biographical and professional experiences, failures, dreams and endeavours and strive to make these fruitful as an authentic field of learning for ourselves and others. We are not only speaking to specialists in their various disciplines, but rather to all who wish to work on the realisation of our creative potential.

Third public workshop of the Global Event College,  November 1 – 5, 2017, Stuttgart

The Matrix Explorations: Technological Singularity or Human Creative Becoming?

The Global Event College invites you to a journey into the 21st century:
What will Reality become, when Virtual Reality becomes real? What will human freedom and
creativity look like, when we are connected to the power of Artificial Intelligence?
Is there a different path ? Can we develop our own creative becoming, develop a truly new self that
is alive in the real world?

Drawing inspiration from the ground breaking movie trilogy „The Matrix“, we will dive into the
riddles of our perceptions and ideas. Together with participants we will experiment with some of
the technologies for brain-enhancement and virtual reality, available already today. Recognizing
that there are opposing forces working to sculpt the future we will aim to bring them to clear
consciousness, and, using discussion group activities, artistic exercises and presentations by
college faculty, search to awaken to the unknown source of life, new concepts and artistic creation.

Please join us as we look together with new eyes at the screen and ask: What is the Matrix? What
is it that keeps us from seeing through our own ideas and disconnects us from the real world?

„You didn’t come here to make the choice… You came here to understand why you made the
choice.“
