TED Talks: Ideas Apparently Not Worth Spreading?

Ned Pamphilon Productions 2013

TED Talks: Ideas Apparently Not Worth Spreading?
TED Censor Hancock & Sheldrake

Among the most interesting internet presentations I’ve seen recently are:
Graham Hancock: The War on Consciousness:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s42vuf0ahU8&feature=player_embedded
Dr. Rupert Sheldrake: The Science Delusion:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4gFi285OhrQ

A few days later these talks were highlighted on the Waking Times website:
TED Talks The Establishment Would Prefer You To Miss:
http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/03/19/3-ted-talks-the-establishment-would-prefer-you-to-miss/

A few more days later a contact in Istanbul informed me: “... that a 2 day TED Talks conference will be held in Istanbul 12-13 April 2013, themed 'Critical Crossroads.”

Next came my regular newsletter from Graham Hancock dated 26 March 2013 as below...
Start:
A week today discussions at TED about their decision to limit access to talks by Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake will cease and at that point TED will have effectively got away with a bizarre act of censorship without ever really having to account for its behaviour. A month from now the whole matter will be forgotten and TED will be able to move on as though nothing ever happened to disturb the wholesome image that it has cultivated so successfully.

After deleting the talks from their TEDxYoutube channel on 14 March (where they had jointly notched up 170,000 views) TED’s tactic has been to create a series of ever-receding “blog” pages where people are invited to discuss the talks. Hancock and Sheldrake have both declined to be involved since they have already refuted all the original allegations of “pseudo-science” that TED levelled as justification for the removal of the talks from the TEDx Youtube channel. TED’s allegations (now crossed out), and Hancock and Sheldrake’s refutations, as well as the talks themselves, can be seen here:
http://blog.ted.com/2013/03/14/open-for-discussion-graham-hancock-and-rupert-sheldrake/

To move things forward Hancock and Sheldrake have both issued challenges to TED to engage them face to face in free and fair public debate, Hancock here:
http://www.ted.com/conversations/17190/the_debate_about_graham_hancoc.html?c=630105
and Sheldrake here:
http://www.ted.com/conversations/17189/the_debate_about_rupert_sheldr.html?c=629643

If you’re concerned about what this issue means for freedom of speech, and for whether we will live in a society in the future that respects our right to make sovereign decisions about our own consciousness, then please take two minutes to register as a poster on those pages and demand that TED stop hiding behind smokescreens and respond to Hancock’s and Sheldrake’s challenges.

This interview also came under my nose whereby Graham Hancock talks about his banned TED talk on the Lifeboat Hour with Mike Ruppert 17/03/2013:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoG4XmEZsXc
In this interview Hancock refers to the TED 'brand' and how the mainstream media is 'finished'. I suggest currently he is being optimistic, but in the long term his observation seems inevitable. I note relevant parts you could skip to:
09.30mins TED brand
17.59mins Xerox, pharmaceutical & other corporate sponsors behind TED banned these talks for 'not being scientific'
47.00mins The USA leading the awakening? I was surprised at this comment, since I've developed a prejudice negative view of the USA, but Hancock knows the USA much better than I, so it is interesting to hear his comments
52.00mins Mainstream media finished

Before any of this was the recent CNN interview by Piers Morgan with US radio host Alex Jones of www.InfoWars.com on gun control:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-tsHlDviuA
A best friend of mine working for a major global corporation heard about this because the explosive interview made mainstream news. My friend must have seen a mainstream news report and criticised Jones because of his loud and aggressive style. I suggest my friend is out of touch; he had never heard of Alex Jones, where as I have known about Jones for several years. Most regular 9-5 working family people are out of touch because they simply do not have the time to follow the alternative information scene.

Trends Journal http://www.trendsresearch.com/index.php publisher Gerald Celente refers to CNN as the Cartoon News Network and how accurate he is. Most mornings I catch up with BBC Radio 4 Today news while I view Celente’s daily Trends In The News. To my observation, the BBC are out of touch and anyone only following the BBC is equally out of touch.

In a later YouTube clip, Alex Jones confronts Piers Morgan backstage in Texas:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVruwm-5org
Morgan asks Jones "Are you enjoying global fame?"
Jones probably has greater (internet) circulation than Morgan. These mainstream folk are so arrogant, but it seems inevitable they will eventually realise the figures and some home truths.

Billy Corgan of popular music combo The Smashing Pumpkins was this last week with Alex Jones making observations on the Piers Morgan interview, suggesting the trend is toward a Total Paradigm Shift:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=DYmIn1upo1c
Indeed, there is a 'battle' going on for information and awareness and since truth can be a dangerous fate for those suppressing it, the truth deniers will try all kinds of tactics to maintain their stranglehold. Ultimately, it is a tussle of consciousness; between fear and love.

Watch this space...
