Te Ao Mārama – the Centre for Fundamental Inquiry – is an institute based at University of Auckland that exists to promote engagement with deep questions at the University of Auckland and beyond. The institute is interested in simple questions that are hard to answer and which transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries such as Abiogenesis How did life originate from living matter? Astrobiology How is life distributed in the universe and what makes living systems unique? and Multiverse cosmology Was the Big Bang a unique event and are apparently fundamental laws of physics applicable only in “our” universe?
