Thailand’s political crisis — from a quantum physics perspective

This event listing in yesterday’s Bangkok Post is, well, remarkable:

Here’s an open invitation to a new talk show-turned-seminar series called “Head + Heart Walking Together!” The first event, on the topic of “Crisis of Thailand and Beyond from a Quantum Physics Perspective”, will be held from 1 to 5.30pm, on Sunday, October 18 in the LT Room, Faculty of Law, Thammasat University, Tha Phra Chan campus. The speakers will be Sivinee Sawatdiaree, a physicist from the National Institute of Metrology; Attakrit Chatputi, founder of Vcharkarn.com and the Thai translator of Fabric Cosmos; and Pramual Pengchan, philosopher and writer of Walk to Freedom. Thammasat law academic Kittisak Prokati will deliver a closing speech under the theme of “Scientific Worldview in Social Science”. Admission is free. For more details, call 02-613-2125 or visit http://headheart.wordpress.com.

Note: The URL in the listing is Thai-language only.
