Arun Gandhi & John Wayne: A Lesson on Lying

Durban Gandhi Newspaper and settlement

I was 16 years old and living with my parents at the institute my grandfather had founded 18 miles outside of the city of Durban, South Africa, in the middle of the sugar plantations. We were well within the country and had no neighbors, so my two sisters and I always look forward being able to go to town to visit friends or go to the movies. One day my father asked me to take him to the city to attend a conference that lasted the whole day and I jumped at the chance.

As he went to town, my mother gave me a grocery list of things I needed and my father asked me to take care of some outstanding things like taking the car serviced. When I left my father, he told me: See you here at 5 pm and we will go home together.

After quickly completing all the assignments, I went to the nearest cinema.I focused so much with the film, a John Wayne movie, I forgot the time. It was 5:30 pm when I remembered. I ran to the garage and got the car and hurried to where my father was waiting. It was nearly 6 pm.

He anxiously asked: Why are you late? I felt bad about it and I could not say I was watching a John Wayne movie in Durban. Then I told him the car was not ready and had to wait. I said this without knowing that my father had already called the garage.

TED Talks and the ‘War on Consciousness’

Awareness is more fundamental than body, than emotion, than mind.

Most fundamental is not what we are aware of—but that we are always aware.

That constant reality of awareness is what Adi Da Samraj calls “Consciousness Itself“.

Ted Talks War on Consciousness

The TEDx Talks that began on the concept of spreading great ideas, has degenerated to a new priesthood of status quo dogma. “The TED organization doesn’t want you to hear the really important, breakthrough advancements in scientific thinking, and to enforce that intellectual ignorance, it has resorted to censoring and suppressing two of the most important scientists our world has ever produced,” opines Mike Adams at his NaturalNews blog.

Does TED Talks now have an anonymous board of “scientific advisors” who wield increasing control of the TED Talks from behind a veil of secrecy.

Has TED become just another vehicle of idea suppression?

Perhaps the most prominent victim of TED censorship and idea suppression to date is Graham Hancock, author of the now-censored TED Talk ironically titled, “The War on Consciousness.”

As one can see in this talk, the idea that humans “might” have this nebulous underpinning called consciousness was apparently so offensive to the TED Talks high priests that they suppressed and “removed it from circulation.”

TED Talks responds:

“Some speakers use the language of science to promote views that are simply incompatible with all reasonable understanding of the world.  Giving them a platform is counterproductive. [So] we’ve appointed a board of scientific advisers. They are (deliberately) anonymous, for obvious reasons.”

Keep in mind that, throughout history, “scientific advisors” once insisted the Earth was flat. “Scientific advisors” claimed inhaling mercury would cure the flu. “Scientific advisors” once thought there were only four vitamins necessary for complete human nutrition, etc.
