Quantum theory’s been around for 100 years. It’s a magical interpretation of how things relate to each other and the basis of understanding matter in its tiniest dimensions — and the vast universe as a whole. For many, the theory remains an impenetrable enigma. In this series of talks, we tackle some of these enigmas, one story at a time.

Jaya Ramchandani is an editor, educator, and curator with a thirst for discovering the universe, through science, philosophy, and looking inward. She co-founded The Story Of to see science and philosophy share the same space and inspire discussions between scientists, philosophers, artists, and other creative communities. She’s studied physics (bachelor’s) and astronomy (master’s) and is currently training to become a teacher…finally taking the plunge.
