TED Talks are like a permanent virtual trade show for intellectuals and that’s why they are so nauseating. What is the intellectual viability of TED Talks? This is a question Benjamin Bratton asks. Bratton teaches visual arts at UC Davis in California. He says TED stands for: “middlebrow megachurch infotainment.” And he’s right. TED Talks is like listening to the ultimate in cultural nihilism. It makes me physically ill sometimes to watch presentations like the Ted Talks where intellectuals glamorize this “new world” they are creating using lies, half-truths, distortions and omissions, and as Benjamin Bratton asks: “Why don’t the bright futures promised in TED talks come true?” It’s all so cool and the phony “sharing and caring” crap makes me gag. The only thing TED Talks is about is money and power. That’s it. Myself as well as some of my friends are beginning to discuss how much we loathe the TED cult. It’s just so Al Gorey (aw shucks, my assistant fudged the data again). Dreaming of technocratic utopias….
“For others, TED is much more. It is a cult, and one which captures the middle and university educated classes into a ‘safe’ environment where men like Al Gore and Ray Kurzweil, or digital barons like Google, Microsoft, Cisco, Honeywell and Facebook, and defense contractor giants like DARPA can easily ply their wears and bump their shares. Few see it, and even fewer dare to ask: Does TED really achieve anything, or is it merely a corporate talking shop?”
Then after listening to Benjamin Bratton on the failure of TED Talks, I started thinking about a TED Talk I watched of Elon Musk, the alleged business magnate, billionaire and founder of SpaceX. Elon Musk’s SpaceX just successfully landed its Falcon 9 rocket. Didn’t NASA successfully land a lunar module on the moon back in 1969 using basically the same rocket technology? So what’s the big deal? After carefully watching Elon Musk give his TED presentation on May 19, 2013 something didn’t seem right to me. First of all, Musk is being interviewed by TED Talk “curator” (his idea) Chris Anderson on Musk’s Tesla (Tesla Motors) electric car. Tesla was a brilliant man and his inventions are barely known, yet all we can come up with is a damn expensive electric car? The Tesla electric car is priced way beyond the consumer market so where does this leave us with Musk saying in his TED Talk he wants to “reduce dependence on hydrocarbons?” What an insult to Tesla.
Why didn’t TED Talks decide to interview Musk with a qualified engineer familiar with electric car technology who could have been much more critical of Musk’s alleged creation? Chris Anderson came out of Oxford (think “peak oil”), so that should arouse curiosity about what is going on here with TED Talks. After listening to this interview three years ago now, I started looking for material on Musk’s bio. Then I started thinking on a hunch the CIA might possibly be behind TED Talks. Sure enough, an April, 2015 article written by Russell Brandom suggested the CIA was behind TED Talks. Well, if the CIA was behind TED Talks and if Elon Musk gave a TED Talk presentation, then what is going on here? To answer this question ,it is highly suggested readers go to Miles Mathis’s website and read his essay on what he thinks is behind Elon Musk called “I Don’t Believe In Elon Musk.”
When readers go through this essay linked below carefully and start doing some checking of their own, they will discover that Elon Musk didn’t come up with his alleged Paypal company, and that the company In-Q-Tell is behind the CIA and its other spinoff corporations capturing technology so that a few wealthy insiders can become even wealthier. But it doesn’t stop there, what I think is going on is that the CIA, which is part of the national security state, is connected to a “breakaway civilization” and have developed a “parallel financial system” moving technology way beyond what we are even remotely aware of. Is this then the reason behind Musk’s SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket which is really 70 year-old technology developed by Wernher Von Bruan & Co.? While the real technological advances going on in space are way beyond rocket technology. Miles Mathis as readers will find out, suggests that the CIA’s In-Q-Tell corporation not only invested in Musk’s companies, but also created them, and that Elon Musk is an intelligence agency creation. Anyone with even a slight interest in this subject, or even curiosity as to what is going on here, might want to compare Musk possibly being a creation of the intelligence agencies as Miles Mathis suggests, to the “secret space program” to begin seeing how the global Lilliputians are being kept in a perpetual state of technological retardation:
