Note from TED: We've flagged this talk, which was filmed at an independent TEDx event, because it appears to fall outside TED's curatorial guidelines. For example, we suspect its claims about remote viewing would not be accepted by most scientists. The guidelines we give our TEDx organizers are described in more detail here:

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
