at the Center of the Galaxy
Dr. Larry Price
Just what does our brain create in the guise of reality? In the past 20 years, neuroscience has found out where and how the brain uses consciousness to create who we are. The details are disturbing: We live in a world without color, sound, aromas and taste; “free will” is a delusion; and Google knows us better than we know ourselves. Dr. Collins will explore brain-mind functions to see just exactly who–or what–is in charge.
The Forest Service and their partners invite you to watch an epic true story of courage, tragedy, natural disaster, and human resilience. Followed by a community dialogue with an expert panel on history and fire management in the Pacific Northwest.

More about IRB: “We migrated to Portland from our homeland of Anatolia, Turkey. Babik (pronounced “baw-bik”) is the ancient name of our homeland—located in the Kurdish region of Anatolia—referring to “land of Grandfather.” Babik is a town with many sheep farmers, the sheep’s wool has supported our family for thousands of years. Because sheep are such a vital part of our family’s well-being, they are treated with much respect and raised naturally on organic farms.
The beautiful carpets and kilims from nearby regions are woven with symbols that tell tales and histories of people. These bring back memories of home, where weavers like my mother and grandmother put their heart into their work, and their works of art adorned each room. My most treasured memories are of family gatherings for dinner around the hand-woven sofra.”
Come join us for a fabulous selection of Turkish Carpets and strong Turkish Coffee!
