“TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds:
Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. This is an organization on a collision course with consciousness research and it was only a matter of time before the war spilled over into their territory.
In this case, the brouhaha started when apparently skeptics by the names of Jerry Coyne and PZ Meyer tried to have a video by parapsychologist Rupert Sheldrake removed from TED talks because they felt he was unscientific. (Here is the video.) To the Immense credit of TED staff, they opened up the controversy to the public. Even more to their credit, the staff person who did this, Emily McManus, is an atheist who set aside her personal beliefs to open up the discussion. A comment section was set up for this topic and the floodgates opened.”
TED Deletes Talks by Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancock
Daily Grail – March 15, 2013 [article/video]
“Last month I posted videos of two recent thought-provoking TEDx talks by Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake. However, if you visit either of those stories today, you’ll find that the videos are no longer accessible. The reason? Complaints were made to the TED organisation – for example, by atheist blogger Jerry Coyne, and of course, P.Z. Myers – about the lectures being unscientific and full of ‘woo’. Under pressure from these bloggers and their readers (and others), TED set up a conversation page to get input from TED viewers about these talks.”

DEAN RADIN: Men Who Stare at Photons, Part 1
“By its discernment of connectedness within every domain of the physical world, the Electric Universe progressively breaks down the boundaries between “normal” and “paranormal.” Now it calls for consideration of phenomena that have been rigorously investigated for over a century. The phenomena studied include direct interactions between minds, and between minds and matter, now confirmed through rigorous experiments.Dean Radin is Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and author of over 200 articles and three books.”
