Science Set Free

Another banned TED talk, this time by Rupert Sheldrake. This is one of those talks that makes you privy to the inside workings of a professional sect of world society: the science community. I highly recommend that you listen to this TED talk, and then read about the other 8 dogmas of science.

Decide for yourself: is this unscientific?

An anonymous panel of scientists deemed this talk to be “unscientific” and moved it from their website to this blog.


1. Writer & Philosopher Daniel Pinchbeck describes the imminent shift in consciousness that is transforming our world.
2. Peter Joseph examines todays economy and reflects our environmental misalignment and the value war.
3. Daniel Pinchbeck at Burning Man explores how art is an instrument of social change.
4. Visionary artist Alex Grey began his career as a medical illustrator at Harvard Medical School, but is best known for paintings that present the physical and subtle anatomy of an individual in the context of cosmic, biological and technological evolution.

This morning on the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour was a melding of different things…

We heard music from Massive Attack, Ween and lots by Ratatat.  A TEDxTalk by the “Earth’s Lawyer” Polly Higgins on her proposal to the UN for designating “Ecocide” a real crime. After that we heard the second episode of Foodocracy Now! The Fruit and Veggie Report with Dallas Collis that included a phone interview with Dirk Becker of Compassion Farm.
