Saturday’s Big Idea
A thought experiment works like this: Considering a theory, hypothesis or conjecture in order to think through its consequences.
For the experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats, his thought experiments don't happen in his mind. He undertakes these experiments in the real world. And his most recent experiment -harnessing relativity to create time management systems - will be on exhibit at at Modernism Gallery in San Francisco.
In today's lesson, Keats demonstrates that technology doesn't have to make life more frenetic. Rather, it can give us the time to live.
