The Rise of Superman: As the author of three books on the subject and co-founder and director of research at the Flow Genome Project, Steven Kotler is one of the world’s leading experts on ultimate human performance. In this riveting talk, he provides a stunning tour of current research, primarily focusing on “flow states”—an optimal state of consciousness where we both feel our best and perform our best. Researchers now know that flow sits at the heart of almost every athletic championship; underpins most major scientific breakthroughs; and accounts for significant progress in the arts.
