Universal connectedness in ANY MEDIUM

Talk to me about

talk to me honestly, and naturally...the way you feel you were meant to truly communicate.. and you will probably have my attention if I am in a likewise state of engagement.

My TED story

To start anywhere but your own combination or version of dreams and destinies would be a disservice to anyone interested in hearing a true story.. and so it shall unfold in similar ways and I deduce from that formula that TED is a growing part of my story as it unfolds and mutates

What have you learnt from watching TEDTalks?
I first saw Malcom Gladwells video on Pasta Sauce 3 years ago and it said to me "There is a whole world of people out there who think the same, analyze, dream, and realize a possibility in this world" that old world had me previously thinking.. it was 'us against them' almost a systematic separation of everyday people and people who can be highly influential.. it came right in the middle of a personal period of growth, reflection, contemplation, and effectively the process of ego disintegration. Identifying with TED and something called Integral Theory (Ken Wilber's philosophy based on the developmental studies of Clare Gaves in the mid 1900's) has reclaimed my faith in the academy, and has definitely been a huge factor as to the why I have chosen to stay in academia and as a student of the world. I now have hosted a TEDxLive event at my school and am well on my way to contributing the the bright and amazing futures that is ours to mould together.. and what a better place to meet than! Its a cosmic watercooler of intellectual and passionate stimulation. Thank you everyone at TED who has helped enrich and enhance the lives of so many people who would have otherwise never been exposed to such valuable and intruiging ideas.Certainly my love for TED is just as worth spreading as the ideas themselves, as I owe a great deal of personal thanks.
