Brother Can You Spare a Paradigm? An ExTED Production

The production that TED pulled the plug on in WestHollywood is happening without them.

Here’s the press release:

 A roster of 20 outstanding speakers and entertainers are on the bill for Brother, Can You Spare a Paradigm?, at the Vortex Dome in downtown Los Angeles on April 14. Originally planned as a TEDx event, this 8-hour day (11 am to 7 pm) features the uncensored ideas of well-known, highly-credentialed speakers. They will deconstruct our outdated worldview and inspire us to deal with the shift of perspective we need to be a cooperative instead of a warring world. Russell Targ, Larry Dossey, Paul Cummins, Paul Nugent, George Regas, Greg Panos, Daphne Rose Kingma, and Marianne Williamson are a few of the great minds presenting at this intimate event. It will be MC’d by comedian Kyle Cease, who was going to poke gentle fun and now can be unrestrained commenting on TED. A limited number of tickets at only $60 are available. Go to for tickets, event details, speaker bios, and to sign up for the free Livestream if you can’t be in L.A. for this great day.

I’m going.  I’ll be making the six hour drive down to L.A. on Friday, (I live on the S.F. Peninsula) which will give me a chance to meet a couple of the people I’ve been writing about all these years.  I’m pretty excited to say the least and it will be a nice change from writing about TED.

One last news tidbit though.  The “conversation” about TEDxWestHollywood was closed a week early just a few minutes ago as I was writing this.  That was probably for the better.  With no input from TED and one skeptic who posted continuously, it had definitely run its course.  There were some indications that this skeptic might have had sys admin rights, but there is no way to be absolutely sure.  What aroused suspicions was that he was able to post a link that the TED spam filter would ordinarily remove, along with the comment.  No one else could post this link but him.  And with that, it’s over.  No more TED stuff . . . I hope.  They’ve chosen their course and are of no more importance.  I never intended to write so much about them, it’s just that they kept shooting themselves in the foot and I kept writing about how they were hopping around and bleeding all over the place.

We are the future; we’ll go our own way.  This is just the beginning . . .

    If any future comments appear on your blog under the name of “forests” they are not me and please block them, even if they sound convincing, they are not me. I have had to change my name to dino, as MU has blacklisted my name on over 20 websites. Thanks.

    I just discovered this blog post on google by typing in “eveshi” and “forests”. The above forests account was not me, and was obviously MU. Hes ruined eveshi’s name on the internet by blacklisting him and hes done the same to me. Hes a psychotic and gets kicks out of pretending to be me. Do you have his IP address or email from that comment? Email me if you have it. Cheers.

    Amit Goswami’s book The Self-Aware Universe: How Consciousness Creates the Material World is also an extremely well written and accessible book on the subject of Quantum physics demonstrating that consciousness came first and that matter is a phenomenon of consciousness and not the other way around.

    As for Brother Can you SPare a Paradigm…I tried to log in to watch the Livestream, but it says the page does not exist…any one know anything about that?

    You guys need to check out a great new book, “Infinite Potential: What Quantum Physics Reveals About How We Shoud Live,” by chemistry professor Lothar Shafer.

      Thanks for flagging up Shafer’s books. A quick search turned up some YouTube videos in which he puts forward a strong case for matter being the emanation of mind – his books would appear to be well worth reading, and I agree that his work would seem to be of great interest to members of this forum.
