In the course of the 40 minute talk, Tea covers human consciousness, cat memes, Santa Claus, principles of gravity, body language and the space-time continuum, all with her characteristic humour and charm. By the end of her investigation into trust, doubt and belief, the only thing that you can be certain of is that consciousness is a fantastical and extraordinary thing and that although creativity may one day be simulated (robots may soon be writing beautiful poems and painting beautiful pictures), the ability to perceive, question and react to creativity remains entirely human.
