GPL's Meet Your Neighbor: Joe Sabella



Greenfield Public Library (402 Main St, Greenfield, MA 01301)


Join the GPL and Joe Sabella for a virtual Meet Your Neighbor: Does a Rock Have Consciousness? An Exploration of Consciousness, Quantum Physics, and Who We Are, on Thursday, May 5 at 6:30 pm.

In this special 90 minute program, Joe Sabella will share his insights on how the quantum physics that is responsible for our computers, cell phones, and internet economy is also responsible for consciousness. Although most people would assume that a rock can’t have consciousness, he encourages them to keep an open mind, because what a rock is, and what a rock experiences may surprise them! Joe will take us beyond the possibility of rock consciousness and explore what the relationship between quantum physics and consciousness means for us as human beings.
Joe Sabella, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, was a Training Specialist and Caseworker at the Franklin County House of Corrections for 25 years, and assisted inmates with reentry to the community until his retirement in 2017. During his retirement, Joe has drawn on his engineering education from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, his counseling psychology education from Union Institute and University, and his extensive counseling experience to explore the intersection of quantum physics, psychology, biology, and spirituality.
