Description

Geometry & The Book of Nature

A Conversation with Michael Schneider

Galileo pointed out that the Book of Nature is written in an alphabet of simple geometric shapes like circles,
triangles, squares and spirals. Michael contends that if we recognise and understand the principles expressed by these shapes, we’ll know what nature is doing in any situation.
Just knowing about the numbers 1 through 12 is enough to understand this alphabet and the written patterns, proportions, and designs of this beautifully organized cosmos.

Coffee, Culture, Cake
Curated Conversations with Living Tradition Bearers

People have long gathered in coffee houses to engage in dialogue and debate. It's a practice that's vital to a dynamic, well-functioning society and one of the reasons why coffee houses were called 'penny universities' back in the 17th and 18th Century.

'Coffee, Culture, Cake' events are part of this living tradition. Hosted at Saucer & Cup, an artisan coffee house in Wimbledon Park, the curated conversations bring together a unique group of living tradition bearers - architects, storytellers, educators, philosophers, musicians - to share their perspectives and join in conversation with you, to facilitate the kind of discussion that helps society flourish.

'Coffee, Culture, Cake' subverts the conventional lecture model. Rather than 'long time for talk - little time for questions', the format of these sessions is 'a little intro, lots of time for questions, and a meaningful summing up'.

Join us at for great coffee, great cake and—with your help—great conversations.
