Chaplain Magruder, a non-denominational spiritual leader, and Scott, engage in a free-wheeling and long-ranging talk on everything from ‘What is Mortality?’ to ‘Are computers sentient?’ From his experience in dealing with hundreds of people facing their last moments, he talks about what he’s learned, who has inspired him, whether we exist beyond this material level, and even whether or not death of our existence. This is not a talk about religion, but more about the connection each of us to the universe as a whole.

He discusses the biggest misconceptions about dying, relays powerful stories, and passes along some of the most significant lessons he has picked up caring for hundreds of people during their most difficult periods.
