What Can Poverty Teach Us About Ourselves as a Society?
Date: 11/17/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Jill Alessandra
Synopsis: Poverty is part of our society and culture in Dallas, in Texas, in the United States, and globally. Poverty, defined as “the state of being poor” or alternately “lack of the means of providing material needs or comforts," is ever present, and ever uncomfortable to speak of. We all have different explanations and potential solutions, but we will today ask, what can we learn from poverty, its part in our society today, and the stigmatization surrounding it?

Can a number reveal your destiny?
Date: 12/15/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Judith Champion
Synopsis: Numbers are not simply tools for measuring and quantifying. Where and when did written numbers arise? As mathematics became more abstract, numbers and formulas became the universal language of science. Philosophers have attributed properties and energies to them, metaphysical and even spiritual. In religious contexts, 3, 7, 12, 30 and 40 occur frequently. Why was five revered by the Phythagoreans? Numerology grew out of their philosophy of numbers. The numerical values of your birth date and name may indicate lifelong energy patterns or influences. Certain numbers are prominent in Freemasonry and carry symbolic meaning especially when combined with geometry: 3-triangle, 4-square, etc. Are numbers entities that help us understand the natural world and forces? We will explore these ideas together.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstien
