Banned TED Talk: The Science Delusion - Rupert Sheldrake at TEDx Whitechapel

Re-uploaded (again, just in case), since TED's Chris Anderson censored Rupert Sheldrake, along with Graham Hancock, and removed this video and Hancock's from the TEDx YouTube channel. They dared question the Scientistic Orthodoxy, and for that they have been publicly castigated and defamed. Follow this link for TED's dubious statement on the matter (and the many comments appropriately critical of TED's rationale):


Presumably TED disavows any copyright claim, as they've disavowed association with the videos.

BIO:
Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D. (born 28 June 1942) is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and ten books. A former Research Fellow of the Royal Society, he studied natural sciences at Cambridge University, where he was a Scholar of Clare College, took a double first class honours degree and was awarded the University Botany Prize. He then studied philosophy and history of science at Harvard University, where he was a Frank Knox Fellow, before returning to Cambridge, where he took a Ph.D. in biochemistry. He was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, where he was Director of Studies in biochemistry and cell biology. As the Rosenheim Research Fellow of the Royal Society, he carried out research on the development of plants and the ageing of cells in the Department of Biochemistry at Cambridge University.

While at Cambridge, together with Philip Rubery, he discovered the mechanism of polar auxin transport, the process by which the plant hormone auxin is carried from the shoots towards the roots.

From 1968 to 1969, based in the Botany Department of the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, he studied rain forest plants. From 1974 to 1985 he was Principal Plant Physiologist and Consultant Physiologist at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Hyderabad, India, where he helped develop new cropping systems now widely used by farmers. While in India, he also lived for a year and a half at the ashram of Fr Bede Griffiths in Tamil Nadu, where he wrote his first book, A New Science of Life.

From 2005-2010 he was the Director of the Perrott-Warrick Project funded from Trinity College,Cambridge. He is a Fellow of Schumacher College , in Dartington, Devon, a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences near San Francisco, and a Visiting Professor at the Graduate Institute in Connecticut.

He lives in London with his wife Jill Purce and two sons.

He has appeared in many TV programs in Britain and overseas, and was one of the participants (along with Stephen Jay Gould, Daniel Dennett, Oliver Sacks, Freeman Dyson and Stephen Toulmin) in a TV series called A Glorious Accident, shown on PBS channels throughout the US. He has often taken part in BBC and other radio programmes. He has written for newspapers such as the Guardian, where he had a regular monthly column, The Times, Sunday Telegraph, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail, Sunday Times, Times Educational Supplement, Times Higher Education Supplement and Times Literary Supplement, and has contributed to a variety of magazines, including New Scientist, Resurgence, the Ecologist and the Spectator.

Books by Rupert Sheldrake:
A New Science of Life: The Hypothesis of Formative Causation (1981). New edition 2009 (in the US published as Morphic Resonance)
The Presence of the Past: Morphic Resonance and the Habits of Nature (1988)
The Rebirth of Nature: The Greening of Science and God (1992)
Seven Experiments that Could Change the World: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science (1994) (Winner of the Book of the Year Award from the British Institute for Social Inventions)
Dogs that Know When Their Owners are Coming Home, and Other Unexplained Powers of Animals (1999) (Winner of the Book of the Year Award from the British Scientific and Medical Network)
The Sense of Being Stared At, And Other Aspects of the Extended Mind (2003)
The Science Delusion (2012, published in the US as Science Set Free)

Rupert Sheldrake - The Science Delusion

Author of the best-selling Science Delusion; proponent of morphic resonance; banned by TED.

Rupert Sheldrake has been dubbed the most controversial scientist on Earth. His best-selling book, The Science Delusion, tackles what he calls the dogmas within conventional science which can blind us to deeper discoveries about the way the world works.

At ASPIRE 4 ALL, Rupert will discuss the ten dogmas on which he says science is built. These dogmas, he says - for example, that nature is mechanical and purposeless, that the laws and constants of nature are fixed, and that psychic phenomena like telepathy are impossible — have held back the pursuit of knowledge.

This is the talk they didn’t want you to see. First delivered at a TEDx event in London, the talk was subsequently removed by TED from its website.

At ASPIRE 4 ALL, participants will have the opportunity to judge for themselves if Rupert’s are ideas worth spreading

NEW MASTERCLASS EACH WEEK:

Rupert Sheldrake is a Biologist & Writer
FULL EPISODE:

In this REDUX episode filmed in November 2012 Biologist & Writer Dr. Rupert Sheldrake explains how each species of animal has a collective memory, his definition of the Science Delusion, how living in India helped develop his theories, why he particularly enjoys 3-way conversations, and how he's never met anyone as lively and fun to be with as Terence McKenna.

Each species has a kind of collective memory, a bit like what Jung called the collective unconscious. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (02:09)

If you trains rats to learn a new trick in London then rats around the world will learn it quicker thereafter. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (02:52)

The conventional view is that memories are stored materially. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (03:37)

It wasn't going through the genes, something much more mysterious was happening. I'm still a skeptic. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake & Brian (09:16)

'We've already figured out the way the world is', that's the science delusion. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (12:43)

What Terence McKenna was saying is that modern science is based on the principal of 'Give us one free miracle and we'll explain the rest.' - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (18:14 )

Did you drink Ayahuasca with Terence McKenna? - Brian (31:28)

I first met Terence McKenna in 1982. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (32:23)

A battered golden Cadillac pulled up and Terence McKenna said, Dr. Sheldrake I presume?' - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (33:45)

We thought 3-way conversations are much better, that's what I like about [London Real] is its trialogue format. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (36:55)

Mr. Richard Dawkins we should have you on London Real to have a debate with Dr. Rupert Sheldrake. - Brian (47:10)

You have such a different view of things in India, there's hardly any materialist, atheist types. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (48:42)

There's nobody who comes close to being as lively and as much fun as Terence McKenna. - Dr. Rupert Sheldrake (52:43)

Graham Hancock - The War on Consciousness BANNED TED TALK

Re-uploaded as TED have decided to censor Graham and remove this video from the TEDx youtube channel. Follow this link for TED's statement on the matter and Graham's response:

If anyone would like to prepare a transcript or caption file in any language so non-English speakers can enjoy this talk, please do so and I will be happy to upload it. Just PM me. Or the video is embedded on the Amara project website, so you can add subtitles there at:

GRAHAM HANCOCK is the author of the major international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven's Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series for Channel 4 in the UK and The Learning Channel in the US - Quest For The Lost Civilisation and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age - have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognised as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity's past.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Hancock's early years were spent in India, where his father worked as a surgeon. Later he went to school and university in the northern English city of Durham and graduated from Durham University in 1973 with First Class Honours in Sociology. He went on to pursue a career in quality journalism, writing for many of Britain's leading newspapers including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He was co-editor of New Internationalist magazine from 1976-1979 and East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981-1983.

In the early 1980's Hancock's writing began to move consistently in the direction of books. His first book (Journey Through Pakistan, with photographers Mohamed Amin and Duncan Willetts) was published in 1981. It was followed by Under Ethiopian Skies (1983), co-authored with Richard Pankhurst and photographed by Duncan Willets , Ethiopia: The Challenge of Hunger (1984), and AIDS: The Deadly Epidemic (1986) co-authored with Enver Carim. In 1987 Hancock began work on his widely-acclaimed critique of foreign aid, Lords of Poverty, which was published in 1989. African Ark (with photographers Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith) was published in 1990.

Hancock's breakthrough to bestseller status came in 1992 with the publication of The Sign and The Seal, his epic investigation into the mystique and whereabouts today of the lost Ark of the Covenant. 'Hancock has invented a new genre,' commented The Guardian, 'an intellectual whodunit by a do-it-yourself sleuth.' Fingerprints of the Gods, published in 1995 confirmed Hancock's growing reputation. Described as 'one of the intellectual landmarks of the decade' by the Literary Review, this book has now sold more than three million copies and continues to be in demand all around the world. Subsequent works such as Keeper Of Genesis (The Message of the Sphinx in the US) with co-author Robert Bauval, and Heaven's Mirror, with photographer Santha Faiia, have also been Number 1 bestsellers, the latter accompanied by Hancock's three-part television series Quest For the Lost Civilisation.

In 2002 Hancock published Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age to great critical acclaim, and hosted the accompanying major TV series. This was the culmination of years of research and on-hand dives at ancient underwater ruins. Arguing that many of the clues to the origin of civilization lay underwater, on coastal regions once above water but flooded at the end of the last Ice age, Underworld offered tangible archaeological evidence that myths and legends of ancient floods were not to be dismissed out of hand.

Graham's next venture Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith, co-authored by Robert Bauval, was published in 2004. This work, a decade in preparation, returns to the themes last dealt with in Keeper Of Genesis, seeking further evidence for the continuation of a secret astronomical cult into modern times. It is a roller-coaster intellectual journey through the back streets and rat runs of history to uncover the traces in architecture and monuments of a secret religion that has shaped the world.

In 2005 Graham published Supernatural: Meetings with The Ancient Teachers of Mankind, an investigation of shamanism and the origins of religion. This controversial book suggests that experiences in altered states of consciousness have played a fundamental role in the evolution of human culture, and that other realities - indeed parallel worlds - surround us all the time but are not normally accessible to our senses.

How Science Explains Spirituality | Rupert Sheldrake

Rupert Sheldrake explains the science behind spiritual practices.

Watch the full talk at

Is science necessarily at odds with the spiritual? Rupert Sheldrake combines scientific research and his knowledge of mystical traditions to argue that we can experience higher states of consciousness and a realm where we might finally find life's meaning.

#RupertSheldrake #science #spirituality

Rupert Sheldrake is author of 'The Science Delusion' and 'Ways to Go Beyond'. New Scientist described him as 'an excellent scientist; the proper, imaginative kind that in an earlier age discovered continents'.

Banned TEDTalk about Psychic Abilities | Russell Targ | suespeaks.org

This talk was part of a 2013 daylong event for TEDx that ended up being produced by Suzanne Taylor’s Mighty Companions after TED withdrew from a program they considered to be delivering “pseudoscience,” with their main objection being to this talk. Here are more videos from this controversial event:


Russell Targ is a physicist who spent several decades running a lab, funded by the CIA, exploring remote viewing, a practice that seeks impressions about distant targets using extrasensory perception (ESP).

The most detailed map of galaxies, black holes and stars ever made | Juna Kollmeier

Humans have been studying the stars for thousands of years, but astrophysicist Juna Kollmeier is on a special mission: creating the most detailed 3-D maps of the universe ever made. Journey across the cosmos as she shares her team's work on the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, imaging millions of stars, black holes and galaxies in unprecedented detail. If we maintain our pace, she says, we can map every large galaxy in the observable universe by 2060. We've gone from arranging clamshells to general relativity in a few thousand years, she says. If we hang on 40 more, we can map all the galaxies.

The Growing Fear of Science | Ronny Priefer | TEDxUNBC

Ronny will explore the current trend of the fear of science and scientific claims, what the causes might be, and what this trend means for society. Dr. Ronny Priefer performed his doctoral work at McGill University focused on organic and polymer chemistry after obtaining his BSc in Chemistry from the University of Northern British Columbia. He next had the opportunity to work in two industrial settings at Stark Associates and Neurochem Inc. before seguing back into academia.

Recently he was able to introduce a new class of polyelectrolytes into the realm of multilayer (i.e. pseudo-polyelectrolytes), which has led to a spin-off company called Breath Health. He worked to develop a breathalyzer for screening and monitoring diabetes with potential for expansion into screening for cancer, lactose intolerance, and marijuana use. Members of his lab have presented over 150 different oral and poster presentations at local, regional, and international conferences and have won numerous awards. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

UFOs and Spirituality - Banned TED Talk

TED canceled the license they gave to TEDx West Hollywood for having content like this and it was privately funded so it all could be delivered. TED had just removed talks by Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancock from their online database and changed the parameters of what was acceptable on the TED stage in what amounted to censorship of what’s outside the bounds of scientific materialism. You can read all about the great TED debacle on the West Hollywood sponsor’s website:

This talk by Paul Nugent was given at the ex-TEDx West Hollywood in. Paul Nugent mentions that a wider view on spirituality will be necessary in this paradigm shift. The original title was “The Missing Link is in our Future, not in our Past”.

Other talks have been banned by TED, specifically
Richard Sheldrake
Graham Hancock and
Russell Targ

Paul Nugent is a longtime member of The Aetherius Society.

Behind the scenes at TEDX | Preparation for talk at TEDxFS

It's not difficult to make one video, to give one talk, to deal with a once-off critic or work one extra day. What is difficult is to keep that going, continuously, over time. Because you won’t like it every day, you better make sure that you want it everyday.
This was the key message behind my very first Tedx Talk, which I held recently in Frankfurt.

This is also one of the key points of the New Work movement: the difference between doing what you like and doing what you really, really want.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, to the TedxFS team for giving me the chance to share these very fundamental #NewWork ideas and for the fantastic organizing of the event.

This was quite a monumental moment for me and really pushed me out of my comfort zone, with a completely new format and a very rigid (and much shorter) time than I am used to. But it helped me to develop as a speaker and really dive into the process of preparing a completely different style of talk and I am grateful for the growth that this has brought.
I can't wait to see the final video, which will be published on the Ted YouTube Channel in the next few months. But for now, here is a Vlog of my experience leading up to the event, of course with some exclusive behind the scenes footage just for you guys.

We would be thrilled if you subscribe to our youtube channel here:

Our videos and vlogs are about our journey to New Work. And since New Work is about the things that we really, really want to do it's an exciting journey that is nowhere near the end.

On Noetic Science: Cassandra Vieten at TEDxBlackRockCity

Note from TED: We've flagged this talk, which was filmed at an independent TEDx event, because it appears to fall outside TED's curatorial guidelines. For example, its suggestion that random number generators can be affected by human thought would not be accepted by most scientists. The guidelines we give our TEDx organizers are described in more detail here:



****************

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
