The War on Consciousness

A friend recently shared a list of three talks which the TED organisation banned from it’s YouTube channel. This one seemed to be pertinent for those interested in the Shamanic worldview, so I thought worth sharing.

The talk was written off by TED with the statement:
“Graham Hancock’s talk, again, shares a compelling and unorthodox worldview, but one that strays well beyond the realm of reasonable science. While attempting to critique the scientific worldview, he misrepresents what scientists actually think…” Chris Anderson, [TED].

That science has little to say regarding, and less interest in truly investigating the nature of, consciousness, it is certainly an intriguing reason to have given.

Connecting modern and ancient views, it is well worth 20 minutes over a coffee. Enjoy!

About Running Elk

My given native name, Running Elk, was bestowed in 2008 as I took my first steps as a fully fledged Medicine Man of the Zuni tradition. A most unlikely candidate for the role, my journey as a healer began some four years prior. The detour onto the shamanic way was most unexpected, yet has been one of the most rewarding challenges to date.
