Thirty-four years later, I was back in Kresge, where, in September 2003, the Mind and Life Institute, in collaboration with MIT’s McGovern Brain Institute, held the first public dialogue between Western neuroscientists and psychologists and the Dalai Lama and Buddhist monks and scholars on the subject of investigating the mind from both the interior, first person, meditative perspective, and from the outer, third person, traditional scientific perspective in the hope of such conversations spurring new avenues of scientific research and understanding of the nature of the mind. The juxtaposition of these two events in my memory is richly poignant. George would have loved it.
