You be the Judge

Image

TED and TEDX have entered the stream of public consciousness and have been marketed as non-profits dedicated to the spreading of ideas. The following is a quote taken from the TED website: We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.

I found it somewhat irreconcilable with the notion of the open dissemination of ideas therefore that TED would choose to censor two talks, one given by Dr. Rupert Sheldrake and the other by Graham Hancock. If I’ve learned anything in my little stint with the humans is that you always look where you’re told not to. That’s where the good stuff usually is. Don’t worry, you’ve got 8 lives left :)

I have decided to post both videos since I believe that each is meritorious in its own right and furthermore, that the public is quite capable of discerning valid information and does not need a “regulator” to filter information and deem suitability for the public domain. It seems as though science has become somewhat dogmatic in its own right and ideas that are contrary to, or that challenge the existing paradigm must be relegated to the fringe. In the eyes of the TED directors, it may seem that some ideas must be contained.

You be the judge.

      Thx. I’m a fan of TED Talks and was really surprised to learn that they would censor speakers who pushed the envelope a bit. I guess even they consider certain subjects taboo.

    I love speakers who push the envelope and invoke mind expansion. I am a fan of Ted Talks’ motivational intellectual speakers, but I hate censorship. I am surprised that these were banned as well. Great find, I really enjoyed them both!

    • Henry Jekyll says:

      Thanks for stopping by and watching the vids. I am glad that you found them enjoyable and decided to share your thoughts. I think both received resistance from the establishment because they challenged the fundamental assumptions upon which the scientific world view is based. But if history has taught us anything, scientific “laws” are only theories, and are always corrected over time.
