God, Math, and the Multiverse | Satyan Devadoss

In 2011, The Veritas Forum at Caltech hosted Satyan Devadoss, who, at the time, was an associate professor of math at Williams College.

When we learn to reunite these often divided realms, we may regain our vision of the Wellspring. Devadoss helps us bring these together in this wonderful Forum event.
