Sweet merciful crap.
There are two frightening realities about this TEDx talk.
1. The fact that people applauded wildly for this trash does not say much for Charlotte.
2. TEDx talks must be scientifically vetted. Between the talks on the dangers of GMOs and magical energy production here, TEDx tarnishes the sterling TED brand.
I seriously think this guy must have done an experiment- Can I talk about absolutely nothing for ten minutes, make up associations that implausible, make claims that are scientifically untenable, and do it on a TED-associated stage for ten minutes, then get applause?
Yep! At least in Charlotte NC you can!
I really enjoyed dissecting the two GMO ones ad nausem. This one I just get nasueum.
And I love the way his crazy symbol "fits DNA perfectly" (4:01)- sure, when you draw the DNA to fit the goofy symbol!
His ball in a bowl (8:10), how about ideomotor effect?
Suffered from a lack of attention? It is in your hands because you refuse to turn it over? What is stopping you?
The guy says absolutely nothing. Good luck with that open source company. I'm not holding my breath for infinite energy.
... and the crowd went wild. The crowd was duped.
