I’m delighted to let you know that two TEDx talks I gave last year have both just been released on video. It was an honor to have these opportunities to represent IONS and to share information about Noetic Sciences.
In December I spoke at TEDx Napa Valley at the beautiful Napa Valley Opera House. The theme of the day was “Connected,” and there were many wonderful presenters. My 20-minute talk was on “The Science of Interconnectedness.” I began with an overview of how interconnectedness has inspired people in important ways throughout history. Then I shared some of what modern science is telling us about interconnectedness, and I ended with a discussion of the work that we’re engaged in at IONS exploring interconnection in ways that go beyond the traditionally understood five senses. The results we’ve seen are intriguing and, while there is much more to be studied and understood, what we’ve learned so far could have implications for how we live our lives today.
Earlier in the year I gave another TEDx talk at Black Rock City in the Nevada Desert for Burning Man 2012, where I was working with colleagues on an experiment in collective consciousness. In addition to talking about the experiment we were doing, I also shared the value of Noetic Sciences and why I disagree with critiques of Noetic Sciences that we often encounter.
These kinds of presentations introduce Noetic Sciences to thousands of people who may not be familiar with our work. I hope you enjoy these talks as much as I enjoyed giving them!
