How To Be Human This is the follow up to Ruby’s sell out shows 'Sane New World' and 'Frazzled'. We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic and mechanical, fingers crossed we'll still have our minds.

With a little help from monk Gelong Thubten, who explains how the mind works, and neuroscientist, Ash Ranpura, who explains where everything that makes us ‘us’ can be found in the brain.
