Matin Mojaza at Vidensfestival 2014 (c) Nadia FrydOne of our ph.d. students, Matin Mojaza, was invited to give a talk at last weekend’s highly acclaimed Vidensfestival 2014, a one-day conference held at the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen.

In front of a sold-out Black Diamond Building-auditorium, full of an audience of 450 people, only very few of which were from the field of particle physics, Mojaza gave a talk about how truths are not necessarily comprehensible. At the atomic level and downwards, the structure of the universe changes so dramatically that it can no longer be articulated, but only described mathematically and interpreted.

“What is actually comprehensible? And are we are looking for truths or an understanding?” were the questions Mojaza sought to answer through his talk followed by an interview with famous Danish TV host, editor and publisher Clement Kjersgaard.

The festival that is held each January was arranged by Kjersgaard’s Danish news magazine RÆSON, and presented an wide array of prominent Danish debaters, social commentators, opinion leaders, and scientists.
