Chengdu Intellectual Conversation Meetup Group

Hello everybody, I'm Michael and I'm the organizer of the Chengdu Intellectual Conversation Meetup Group. I'd like to introduce our group to all of you guys here and hopefully attract some new attendees for our upcoming events.

About Us

"Learning has no limits." Our group is for anyone interested in thought provoking, intellectual and stimulating conversations. We define Intellectual Thinker as anyone curious in learning more of what they know and don't know.

We meet regularly in groups of up to 10 people per event to discuss a wide range of topics including science, technology, art, philosophy, health, fitness, psychology, history, business, education and many others.

We also host a book chat from time to time and welcome anyone to introduce to us a good book, either fiction or non-fiction on any thought-provoking and meaningful topic. Share with us what this book is all about, what you've learned from this book and together we shall have a stimulating conversation about it.

Event Venue and Registration

Most of our events are held in the Yi Guan Miao 衣冠庙 area, in a tea house or apartment. You can take Subway line 3 and get off at "衣冠庙" station. In order to ensure no more than 10 participants attend each event, we will provide you with the detailed venue address after you have registered to attend an upcoming event.

To register for an event, please add my WeChat: mikex7 (please indicate: "Intellectual Conversation Group" when sending the contact request) and let me know your name and which event you're interested in attending. You will be given the detailed venue address and invited to join our WeChat group upon registration. Please note that when registering to attend each of our events, we will charge you in advance an event fee of 20 RMB (which includes a drink at the event) to cover costs associated with organizing and running this Meetup group. This fee can be paid via WeChat's "red packet" or fund transfer feature.

Below are some topic ideas for discussion at our events. And please always feel free to suggest any thought-provoking topic that you would like for the group to discuss:

- What is reality?

- What is consciousness?

- Can robots be conscious?

- What is morality?

- For what reason does time exist?

- What is the meaning of the existence of our universe?

- What defines you? / How do you know that you are you?

- Why is there something rather than nothing?

- What is the meaning of life?

- Is there an objective truth, or is truth merely relative to our subconscious bias?

- Where is the line between art and not art?

- Why do we dream?

- Does a person's name influence the person they become?

- What should be the goal of humanity?

- What actions in your life will have the longest reaching consequences? How long will those effects be felt?

- If a child somehow survived and grew up in the wilderness without any human contact, how "human" would they be without the influence of society and culture?

- If you could teach everyone in the world one concept, what concept would have the biggest positive impact on humanity?

- What benefits does art provide society?

- What is the best way for a person to attain happiness?

- Is intelligence or wisdom more useful?

- Which of your beliefs are justified and which ones aren't?

- What is the most important goal every person should have?

- Is it better to be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond?

- Can human nature be changed? Should it be changed?

- What two questions would you ask to get the most information about who a person truly is?

- Why do we judge ourselves by our intentions but judge others by their actions?

- Does knowledge have intrinsic value or does it need to have a practical use to have value?

- Is math something that humans created or something we discovered?

- As more and more is being discovered about quantum physics, we become less and less able to comprehend the nature of reality. Is this something temporary and our minds will adapt and begin to understand this new reality or is it possible that the human mind will soon reach its limits of comprehension? If it's only temporary, is there is a limit to what the human mind can comprehend? If we are reaching our limits, how do we continue to study our reality?

- If every neuron in a human was accurately simulated in a computer, would it result in human consciousness?

- Is it possible that some animals are self-aware and think about their ability to think?

- How much does language affect our thinking?

- Can rational thought exist without language?

- Is it possible for humans to create something completely novel and new that is based on nothing that previously existed? Or is human creativity just rearranging and building on previous ideas?

- Are intelligence and happiness tied together in any way? If you are highly intelligent, is it more likely that you'll be more, or less happy?

- Different people and different organisms perceive reality in vastly different ways. With that in mind, what is real and what is just our perception of reality? Or does every organism live in its own personal reality?

- Is justice a human construct or is it independent of humans?

- Can morality ever be objective or is it always subjective? If it can be objective, in what instances? If it's always subjective, how do we decide whose concept of morality is correct?

- At what point is a technologically enhanced human not a human anymore?

- What scientific breakthrough would have the biggest effect on humanity?

- If emotions are the product of biochemical reactions, then in the future we will be theoretically able to control them. If we could control emotions through technology, should we?

Contact Improvisation in Chengdu

Hi Everyone,

Every Tuesday evening (7-9pm) and Saturday morning (10am-12pm), we hold a contact improvisation gathering. Contact Improvisation or CI is a form of contemporary dance where you can connect with different people from different backgrounds. It's great exercise for all involved but much more relaxed than aerobics or running and more social than going to the gym alone. All walks of life are welcome!

Our next session is this Tuesday, January 8th at 7pm near the Chunxi Road subway stop at the Yin Shi Mall, 8th floor at the New Horizons Yoga Wong Ga Yoga Studio, to the right of the Chunxi Road subway exit B/Subway sandwich store (look for the elevator entrance to the right of the Huawei store). The cost of the studio rental is divided among the participants (usually 20-30rmb).

18号周二晚上19:00,老地方银石广场8 新地平线瑜伽皇伽瑜伽馆

If you would like to be added to our wechat group, feel free to contact me via wechat at lummerKM. Don't be shy, come join us!

Hope to see you all there,

Steve
