Science and your consciousness – talks by progressive minds, banned by TED

March 20, 2013

Here are two BANNED TED Talks (meaning removed from the official TED site) given by Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake. I find both of the lectures to be extremely refreshing; clear departures from the generic, mundane, orthodox Talks typically given at TED conferences… which explains why they were banned. The fact that they were banned reinforces the similar messages each of the talks was trying to deliver.

For a background on Graham Hancock I would suggest reading the following four books: Lords of Poverty, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Underworld.

Prior to seeing the second talk, I had not heard of Rupert Sheldrake, but I will be sure to look for his most recent book The Science Delusion.

      Thanks for visiting, and for the comment. I highly recommend any non-fiction book written by Graham Hancock. “Supernatural” and “Underworld” are my two favorites I haven’t yet read R. Sheldrake but I intend to.
