Life is Physics Orchestrated
Brian explores the mysteries of our universe
We humans like to think we’re exceptional beings, but just like trees, rocks and tabletops, we’re nothing but the products of physics, moulded by its laws.
Yes, our ability to love, to regret, to build, to destroy, separates us from inanimate objects, but the reality is we’re just bags of particles, or as Professor Brian Greene eloquently puts it, “life is physics orchestrated.” Pretty humbling, huh?
While our lifespans are mere blips on the universe’s timeline, it doesn’t make them worthless. As Brian describes it, the novelty of our existence lies in the fact we’re transient travellers made from the same matter as everything and everyone around us.
Our ‘blip’ is part of a cosmic story that started at the dawn of time, has been shaped by entropy and evolution, and will one day come to a spectacular end.
During his June 2022 tour across Australia and New Zealand, Brian will explore this story, and along the way, answer our most ancient and existential questions.
Brian needs little introduction, so here’s the TL;DR version. First and foremost he’s credited with groundbreaking discoveries in superstring theory, including the co-discovery of mirror symmetry, and the discovery of spatial topology change. His work has captured the imaginations of people around the world, with his appearances on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and the Joe Rogan Experience racking up millions of views. He’s authored six incredibly successful books, he’s the head of Columbia University’s Center for Theoretical Physics, AND is chairman of the World Science Festival (which he co-founded)!
Part philosopher and part physicist, don’t expect him to get bogged down in equations – Brian’s passion spills over into discussions of free will, art, religion and ethics, which he examines through the lens of not only a scientist with 40 years experience, but also as a kid whose curiosity knows no bounds.
This event will be your little pocket of order in our chaotically beautiful universe. Grab your tickets to see one of our generation’s greatest minds in full force.
See Brian live and on-stage
After the sh*t show of 2020 and 2021, we deserve a little fun. And if you’re anything like us, your idea of a fun time is witnessing one of the world’s best theoretical physicists explore the intricacies of our strange universe. Prepare to be infected (too soon?) by Brian’s passion for the universe, which often spills over into titillating existential musings on free will, religion, art and ethics.
We design Think Inc. events to be a bit like a rap concert: high energy. Bring some friends and make some new ones as you witness one of the most influential scientists of our generation live in conversation.
The Meet & Greet Experience
Your chance to meet Brian
Watch the show from the best seats in the house and make the most of your exclusive opportunity to meet and greet Professor Greene after the show. Here you can also pose him your craziest questions and, if you please, get something signed. You’ll also receive a digital memento with yourself and Brian as captured by our professional photographer on the night. Plus get your free copy of Brian’s latest book, Until the End of Time.
You’ll also get to mingle with like-minded people and meet the Think Inc. team. If that’s not enough for you: complimentary food and beverages. Need we say more?
