    • Apr 5 2013: "Among other things, the language must not be spiritual. This is a powerful form of censorship."

      It's a powerful form of censorship and would eliminate some of the greatest minds in the history of science. Einstein? Gone. As Sheldrake points out, he would also not have qualified for TED because of his lack of scholarly credentials when he did some of his greatest work.

      Albert Einstein ~ "The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness."
