TED, atheists, censorship…



TED is supposed to be a platform to facilitate the organization of talks about interesting subjects by interesting people. But when Sheldrake decided to talk about 10 dogmas of modern science (one of which is related to non-localized consciousness, which, according to the speaker, can exist outside of our brain) and when Hancock decided to talk about consciousness, dreams and psychedelia then the atheists of the world reacted. And their reactions led to the semi-censorship of these two talks: they were removed from the official TED Youtube channel and posted to the TED Blog instead. [1]

Reactions have been building up in the Internet. (see here, here and here)

Despite of whether TED responsible people are dogmatic themselves or they were just intimidated by the atheists’ protests, one thing is for sure: science is on the verge of a great paradigm shift with consciousness (and the immaterial phenomena related to it) as the main guide. And no protest can change that…

One can see these two lectures in Youtube…

He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum!
