The Buddha taught that everything is connected (emptiness) and constantly
changing (impermanence). Charles Darwin proposed a mechanism (natural
selection) to explain how the diversity of life that we see around us today
developed from a singular beginning. Professor Allendorf, one of the founders
of the field of conservation genetics, will combine these revolutionary insights
on a journey to the beginning of our lives. He will also show that we perceive the
world around us through a lens which has been molded by evolution.
