Is There a God-Shaped Hole—or a Self-Shaped Hole?

by | Apr 10, 2024 | Announcements

You’ve heard of a “God-shaped hole”—the idea that if you don’t believe in God and accept him into your life, you’ll be deprived of spiritual values such as meaning and purpose.

At LevelUp 2024, I’ll discuss the self-shaped hole: the void resulting from denying the existence of the self (à la Sam Harris)—or failing to revere and develop yourself (as many people do)—or subordinating yourself to a group (via collectivism, tribalism, wokeism) or to an alleged God (as religion prescribes).

Together, we’ll examine the secular nature of the self, focusing on its evidence-based elements and the corresponding values we must understand and embrace in order to be spiritually whole—and thus love our lives to the fullest.

Do yourself a favor. Join me, the other LevelUp speakers, and hundreds of life-loving people from all over the world for the intellectual and social event of the year.
