Graham Hancock’s TED Talk ~ the War on Consciousness

I have been an avid fan of TED talks and we have even featured a few TED videos on this site. TED itself has definitely helped in spreading a lot of knowledge and showcasing some awesome people. But when TED pulls down content and doesn’t offer a good enough reason as to why, you have to be a little curious.

Graham Hancock’s talk on, ‘the War on Consciousness’ at TEDx Whitechapel was pulled down, and now a debate page has been put up, quite strange and it points to the fact that TED is not here to bring about change especially when it comes to invoking consciousness.

Graham Hancock’s talk at TED on the War on Consciousness

Graham Hancock talks about something very interesting; he connects ancient civilizations that evolved their consciousness by consuming psychoactive plants or fungus such as the Amanita muscaria, he talks about how cave drawings are related to visions seen during altered states of consciousness.

He then talks about Amazonian Shamans who discovered Ayahuasca and how could they combine the two plants out of thousands of species in the tropical forest to create their magical brew. Hancock also explains his personal Ayahuasca experience and how it changed his life and how it can benefit the entire species to have an experience like this.

He ends up with how today, exploring consciousness is trampled upon by governments and ruling forces, Hancock states that this shouldn’t be allowed as its an individual’s choice to explore consciousness.

Well we do agree with what he says, especially towards the end where, we as a collective need to evolve our consciousness to solve problems such as war, poverty, food, drugs and so many more that have been created by our current level of consciousness.

As Albert Einstein puts it, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

Watch the video and see if you find reason for it to be pulled down from TED? Don’t forget to let TED know how you feel.

    TED is an excellent example of Group Think.

    Our incredible planet in the hands of the politicians, corporations and organized religion.

    It leads man ever closer to his ultimate destruction.

    Only consciousness can awaken humanity.

    Intelligence is consciousness.

    The ultimate experience of being.

    True education leads to the discovery that thoughts must cease for your real nature to be.

    Knowing oneself is intelligence.

    Consciousness is far beyond the reach of thinking, logic and reason.

    Enlightened talk about scientifically backed process and postulation on what this may mean to us individually and as a race. I don’t find any of it offensive.

    TED is a great source of information and taking down an informative talk is going against the very reason TED exists, if some one is opposed to this talk then don’t have to watch it or don’t have to follow what it is saying … simple as that but do not take it away from people who want to hear these talks. Don’t force on people what they can hear and what they can not.

    This talk is so important for the betterment of society..Whoever decided to pull it must be very afraid of knowing the truth….yet the TRUTH…being “THE TRUTH” must be known by all humankind, whether we are unnecessarily afraid of knowing or not………

    I don’t think so Vivek Kumar. I have listened and watched David Icke discuss his own DMT experience (watch it on youtube). He certainly would not be against Graham Hancock’s discussion since he is in favour of natural psychedelics for the purpose of spiritual exploration. Maybe you just have issues with David and are projecting.
