    I noticed all the likes this comment had so I thought I'd check out this 'TruthContest' and found something that definitely caught my attention.

    Here's the first three pages:
    [/size]

    The Ultimate Truth in 3 pages.

    The Present
    by Michael Smith



    A man should look for what is and not for what he thinks should be.
    Albert Einstein


    Truth you can check: It is as matter of fact as the ground and as useful as food. It's the kind of truth that can make hate and war as unnecessary as ignorance.

    Charles Darwin revealed how evolution works, but not what it really means.

    Evolution is no longer just a theory; it has been proven true beyond a reasonable doubt. The problem is, even people who believe evolution is true disassociate themselves from the process. They somehow skipped all the lower forms of animal life and just started out at the top of the evolutionary ladder.

    The evidence says we evolved as life evolved.

    Human beings did not just appear at the top of the evolutionary ladder to reap the benefits of those millions of years of evolution without having to live through it.

    In other words, you were those other animals. Someone had to be them.

    You had to be lower animals to be a human now. You lived as all the different animals in your evolutionary line. You lived through millions of years, and millions of lives and deaths to get to where you are now. That's what Darwin's book means.

    In addition to the fossil evidence, the genetic code proves that all animals, including us, evolved from bacteria over the last 700 million years on earth.

    In other words, you were a microbe, an insect, a fish, a dinosaur, an ape...

    When all of the evidence (100%) says something happened, and there is no evidence (zero) that anything else could have happened, it is the truth beyond a reasonable doubt to honest, rational people.

    We have come a very, very long way, but we have a little further to go. The next and last step in our evolution is learning and accepting the truth of life, and this includes acknowledging our true past.

    The truth will free us from the animal world we all evolved from.

    ______________________________________________

    Immortality: "It is impossible to be conscious of being unconscious."

    It is not possible to be aware of being unconscious from your own perspective. You cannot be aware of not being aware. You can be less aware/conscious, such as when you are asleep, but not completely unconscious (dead), because time would stand still for you. A billion years could pass, and you would not know it.

    How do you know you are dead? It is not possible to be aware of any gaps in life; it is continuous and never-ending from your own point of view.

    Death and birth are a continuous event from your own perspective.


    You will die physically, but you will be born into a new physical body. Being born happens, or you would not be here now. You were born into this life. It is what we know happens. There is no evidence anything else happens. True or false?

    The "you only live once" theory: Many people say that they do not believe in reincarnation; they believe when you die, you're dead. What about fish, clams, horses, bears, flies? People that say you only live once are saying some souls get to live just one life as a worm, and that is it for all of eternity.

    Other people believe you are judged by a god after you die. Is the worm judged?

    Many people think human beings are the only animal that is conscious. Is a dog or cat conscious? Where do you draw the line? Is a bird conscious? The truth is, all animal life is conscious and alive just like us.1 The only thing that makes humans different from other animals is that we have a mind that can think and reason at a high enough level to know the truth of life, and those that know rise above animals.

    It is time to see and accept the truth the evidence supports.

    You are immortal; it is impossible to not be, because it is impossible to be conscious of being unconscious. Just that one sentence proves it. It is like these sentences: It is impossible for it to be light and dark at the same time, you cannot have your cake and eat it too. They are simple, but certain facts. The sentence "It is impossible to be conscious of being unconscious" is a simple and certain fact.

    Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be changed from one form to another. Albert Einstein

    Like energy, consciousness cannot be created or destroyed.


    This revelation will change your life. Now you know where you come from and what you have been doing for about half a billion years (evolving). The next question is how does life work and what is next, and we can know that too.

    People are trying to understand the universe independent of consciousness, and it is the most important factor in the equation.

    The universe as it relates to conscious life can be understood now. It is the ultimate truth; the truth that will transform mankind and the world.

    ______________________________________________


    "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." FAB = -FBA

    People do not realize what Isaac Newton's third law of motion really means.

    Everything is balanced.
    Everything physical (matter/energy) goes back and forth in balanced circles, cycles, or the equivalent. Birth-death, old-young, big-small, strong-weak, start-stop, up-down, rich-poor, beginning-end, fast-slow, hot-cold, pain-pleasure, win-lose, day-night, full-empty, high-low, in-out, success-failure, united-divided, give-receive, creation-destruction, on-off, positive-negative, etc.

    Positive and negative forces moving in balance are the physical universe.

    There are no exceptions to the laws of nature Newton revealed. They apply to all matter and energy. Human beings are matter and energy, thus you and all humans are governed by the same laws.

    Luck: Good luck and bad luck are the balance in action and the way the balance most affects our lives. Luck is manifested on many levels. There is the day-to-day luck, from little things like getting a good parking space or a bad one, to big things, such as winning the lottery or finding out you have cancer. Then there is the long-term luck. You are lucky if you are born with good looks, money, health, talent and intelligence. You are unlucky if you are born unattractive, poor, sickly and without talent or intelligence. Most people are in between the extremes, but it does not matter, because we are immortal, and it will all balance out. Luck will move back and forth; everyone will get equal amounts of good and bad luck.

    What goes around comes around. Everyone gets their turn.

    Death is the great equalizer: If you are born with advantages, you can have more good times than bad times in your life, but when you die, you are reborn with disadvantages, and have more bad times than good times and vice versa. In the long run, no one has it better or worse than anyone else does, because life will always balance eventually. It is the known nature of the universe we live in.

    If you flip a coin a thousand times, it will come up heads about half the time and tails about half the time. The odds of random events are predictable; this is why Las Vegas always makes a profit on gambling year after year. You can see the truth if you look at the big picture. You will see that random events are predictable because they balance. It's a fundamental truth of life everyone knows, but ignores.

    This is why on the Fourth of July, about 162 people will be killed in auto accidents, and every fourth, about the same amount are killed. An average of twelve auto accidents happen every minute; about six-thousand teenagers are killed in auto accidents every year in the US. About four million people are bitten by dogs.

    Why is the number about the same every year?

    Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for insects as well as for the stars. Human beings, vegetables or cosmic dust; we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance. Albert Einstein

    Destiny: Not being in control does not mean our future is predestined. No one knows the future; the future cannot be known. Anything can happen. The only thing we can be certain of is that it will be balanced.

    The good news is, all of the best things are going to happen to you; the bad news is, so will all of the worst things, if you do not learn the truth.

    Consequences: People may think, if everything is balanced, then it does not matter what you do. That is true, if you want to continue living in the savage animal realm. If you want to evolve past the animal realm, to a realm where there is no fear, pain or death, you have to learn and spread the truth of life. You have to live as a spiritual being. If you live like an animal, you will continue to be one.

    Okay.....so maybe it's not the best of Ted Talks  but I liked it.  It had a real cool title. The Sixth Sense Technology.  He is showing what everybody is going to be able to do with a computer in 5 years or less.
    I wanted to make a contribution to this thread and at the time it seemed to fit. Sometimes I get so caught up in following a new video on one of my pet projects that I don't always take the time to read or watch everything else that gets posted. I do read most or review a lot of stuff but not everything. You were nice enough to comment on a post that not many people review. .... I like Ted Talks and I think this is a great idea for a thread. Keep it up. There are so many Ted Talks to pick from that finding the right one is not easy. I picked this one because of the title. You guys were making Star Wars comments and the title seemed "star wars" like. If they ever do a best of Ted Talks, I doubt this one makes that cut. It was alright.
