Back Stage – Featured scientist in "What the Bleep Do We Know" at Center for the Arts

More than 120 seats were reserved by Monday for a Nov. 21 talk in Grass Valley by physicist Fred Alan Wolf, one of the scientists featured in “What the Bleep Do We Know?”

The movie, playing at Sierra Cinemas since mid-August, combines live-action drama, documentary and animation to reveal the uncertain world of what physicists define as “the quantum field,” hidden behind normal, waking reality. Thirteen experts, among them Wolf, explain the nature of reality through science, philosophy and religion.

Wolf is the author of 11 books, including “Taking the Quantum Leap,” which was the recipient of the National Book Award for Science in 1982. He earned his Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of California-Los Angeles in 1963.

A total of 290 tickets will be sold for the Nov. 21 talk, which will run from 2:30 to 5 p.m. at the Center for the Arts, 314 W. Main St. 

  Suzie Daggett and Mary Tendall will interview Wolf today. That interview will air at a later date on the local public access station NCTV, Channel 11.

Wolf’s November appearance is sponsored by the Gold Country IONS community group, in conjunction with the Center for the Arts and Insight group.

  Admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the door; reservations are available by calling Tendall at 265-5737 or by e-mailing at
