Who are We? (the extraordinary tale of homo sapiens … Answers provided by a paleontologist, a historian, an evolutionary psychologist and a story-teller)
What is our place in the Universe? (answers from a theoretical physicist, an astronomer searching for extra-terrestrial life, a religious mystic and a humorist)
What is Art? — is beauty just a human invention? (an anthropologist, a painter, a sculptor, and a museum curator)
What is Love — and why are we so bad at it? (a neurologist, a musician, a novelist, and a sex therapist)
What is Evil? — and how do we fight it? (a moral philosopher, a war-correspondent, a terrorism expert, and a human rights campaigner)
What are the most Gorgeous New Things being created in our world? (an architect, a boat builder, a windmill designer, a photographer, and a marine biologist)
Are we inadvertently creating New Forms of Life? (an AI researcher, a Web 2.0 pundit, a biochemist, a meme-theorist, a nano-technologist, and a transhumanist)
What are today’s most significant Cultural Trends? (a fashion designer, a technology writer, a foreign correspondent, a video-game creator and an epidemiologist)
What will the Future be like? (a scenario planner, an inventor, an economist, and a science fiction author)
What are the Problems I should be most worried about? (an asteroid hunter, a climatologist, a psychiatrist, and a statistician).
Who will be the next President? (Yes, it’s 2008. We’ll invite the leading candidates)
What will be my Legacy? (a global business leader, an environmental designer, a billionaire philanthropist, a social entrepreneur and a mother)

The event has sold out but just announced is a overflow event at Aspen. 300 people can attend Aspen to view speakers presenting, simulcast presentations from Monterey and social events.

This is an event I so look forward to experiencing one day.
