I attended the opening cocktail and launch of this year's IX Symposiumhttp://ix.sat.qc.ca/ The opening keynote speakers, Nora Bateson and Eames Demitrios set the stage for the subject that is now being explored during this fifth IX Symposium: What is reality? How do we create reality? How have we learned to edit certain qualities of reality to fit into our biases and preconceptions.

What I observed about this exciting IX Symposium is that expertise and developments the SAT team has been working on for decades are now coming together where the creative event is shared in multimedia around the world.

If you want to exercise your neurons, take in a few activities going on right now until June 2 2018. This year accessibility is the key! You can purchase your ticket on line for a master-class or other event, you can decide on a whim and just show up to buy your ticket. Check this Facebook link to see what the excitement is all about.

Finally, a little editorial comment: it is a fact that we humans edit what we consider to be reality BUT it is also a fact that there is not one discipline (art, science, religion etc) that can prove what Intelligence, Life, Love, or Reality are!
