Has there been a conspiracy to fracture and dissociate our minds? Is there a control system working secretly against our souls? What can we do to restore coherence? Have we lost our connection to the heavens and can classical aesthetics help to restore it?



Graham Hancock: The War on Consciousness

This talk and another by Rupert Sheldrake were banned by the TED staff because its anonymous “scientific” committee made some spurious accusations about their being “unscientific.” Obviously, we need a revolution in consciousness for our practical and spiritual survival. While I do not see Ayuhuasca as the likely solution to this problem, we should not underestimate the delusional state of the prevailing consensus mentality. Sufis, fortunately, have a methodology of ecstatic consciousness that can open the heart and guide us toward sanity. 

See Graham’s and Rupert’s response here.
