#briefly #what’s on my mind #TED – Ideas Worth Spreading
Just realised today how big impact TED talks had on my early stage “wanna know it all” of brain development 😉 while I was growing up. I remember coming back from school or later on university classes bored and looking for more inspirational information OUT there, that would actually be of meaning to me. TED talks was a great solution for feeding my curious neurons for years. I just reminded myself of this little fact today and decided to blog about it briefly with humble advice to all curious souls out there to follow TED youtube channel from time to time. If you are not subscribed to TED youtube channel yet … well…it’s time to get some REAL education by doing so 🙂 “TED Talks shares the best ideas from the TED Conference with the world, for free: trusted voices and convention-breaking mavericks, icons and geniuses, all giving the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. They post a fresh TED Talk every weekday.”
I don’t really see the point of writing more about it here, as I assume that probably everybody has some kind of notion what TED talks initiative is all about. You can get more information on the official channel www.ted.com, where you can study more about the organization, its mission, history, goal, team, programmes and initiatives; You can participate in discussions, read TED blog, newsletter, TED studies, ideas, watch TED talks, playlists, explore talks chosen by topics and much more. Speaking shortly – educate yourself with TED.
You can start with checking a Playlist of 20 the most popular TED Talks of All Time here.
And then just simply jump randomly from topic to topic, whatever attracts your attention and might be of interest to you. Here you enter well presented list of over 2000 Talks to Stir Your Curiosity – Find just the right one for you.
I didn’t like that TED banned some talks in the past, like banned talk by one of the writer I respect – Graham Hancock “War on Consciousness” talk. Talk was about Consciousness in relation to psychedelics, visionary plants, DMT and shamanism (subjects so close to my heart! about that in future posts). I truly believe that no knowledge should ever be banned from the public, so that move by TED was disgraceful. It doesn’t mean though that I will resign from learning from the site because of that. There are still so many amazing and intelligent videos uploaded there week by week that I definitely won’t deprive myself from them, due to personal disgust on banning some talks. In the age of information though even the most banned talks are available online anyway.
If you don’t want to be looking for knowledge outside and think you don’t need this kind of stimuli – look for some wisdom within. After all…it’s all there 😉 Meditate 🙂
I manage to do them both with pretty great results 🙂
Happy educational experiences with TED.
