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.

Exposing the false philosophy of modern science?

This new mini-documentary by Mike Adams takes aim at what he calls “the false philosophy underpinning most of modern science.”  Adams attempts to explain why (he claims) “science is harming life on our planet”: (i.e., GMOs, vaccines, psychiatric drugs, nuclear weapons, etc.) — they’ve all been pursued and promoted under the brand of “science.” According to Adams, most modern scientists do not believe human beings are conscious beings, per’se.  “At its core, science perceives humans as  just ‘biological robots’ which “provides the philosophical pretext for genocide,” claims Adams

What is interesting is that Adams, a respected activist in the field of natual health, is not coming from an eschatological religious-type of mindset.  Rather, he builds upon “new-science” and core philosophy of consciousness theory.

From Mike Adams’ NaturalNews blog

(NaturalNews) I have a timely and important message to share with you today. As explained in this important mini-documentary we’ve decided to release at this moment (link below), it is time that we tore away the false facade of “modern science” and exposed the core philosophical underpinnings that have enabled so much pain, suffering and destruction to be carried out in the name of “science.”

Big-picture thinking: A new measure of intelligence

There exists a huge gap in practical intelligence among the so-called “smartest” people in our society.  Observing the various realms of science, medicine, experts and world events, we’ve concluded that our modern definition of “intelligence” (IQ) is seriously lacking.

Seeing the big picture with new intelligenceWhat’s lacking in these so-called “smart” people is the ability to see the bigger picture by assimilating information from a large number of seemingly unrelated sources. Or, stated in another way, even some of the most high-IQ people around can’t see the big picture because they get lost in the details.

Memorization is not intelligence

See, the very concept of “intelligence” in our society is way off the mark. It isn’t intelligent to be able to memorize and regurgitate a huge number of facts and figures, yet this is precisely the measure of academic aptitude assessed in modern educational systems — especially in law school and medical school. To function as a crude human database of facts and figures is not very useful in an age where handheld computers and mobile computing devices can do the same thing.
