QV0118: Arnie Benn on the Demystify Science Podcast

Arnie Benn’s recent work has been focused on the behavior of humans and magnets. In his upcoming book, The Animal In The Mirror, he explores the evolutionary patterns still at play in the human mind, with an emphasis on the biological aspects that tend to govern cognitive processes. For the Quantum Bicycle Society, he has been exploring material explanations for magnetism as a function of atomic orbitals shape. We talk about music, the endless project of maintaining the landscape of the soul, cosmological mysteries, and material explanations for atomic phenomena.
