Probably Dennis McKenna? I’m not paying money to see the rest of his answer that they cut out though lol

I’ve left comments three times over the last two or three years at TED and all three times my comment was deleted within a day. Whoever is responsible for monitoring the comments to TED videos, they are allergic to anything that doesn’t represent their double-digit mentalities.

I’m learning from this talk by Hancock that narrow-minded PC people are representative of TED in general.

I was thoroughly enjoying this interview when up came the ad. How to destroy a perfectly good program or episode of London Real.
Forget about all the sense that is being talked here and fall back into the world of control and consumerism.
Killed the show or what!

Thank you for putting this videos available for free. It’s really important to listen to his an many more amazing people’s advices specially when you’re trying to get better results in your life, better behaviors towards the world and just realizing that we are a community, not just humanity, there is energy comming from our fellow human parteners but also from plants, animals, and bigger things.
Thank you Mr. Graham Hancock for never giving up on personal development and universal love! The truth in every aspects of life is the best choice.

Well, Mr. Hancock almost literary asked for it from Joe Rogan in that historical podcast. He put out the topic several times with a naughty note in his voice. Anyway, I was honored to witness that.

At first (like many others, I gather) I was bummed to see the “social media” gateway. I never want a Facebook acct. and I don’t do Twitter, either. But, as I happen to have a LinkedIn account, I get to see the whole thing! Thanks.

Thank you very much for such a tremendously informative show. I will purchase in advance Graham’s new book and I urge LR to get him back once he’s finished it to discuss his next work in greater detail. Hancock is priceless.

Not too happy i was forced to make a social media account to watch this video. FREE should mean FREE

But as things in this time go, thankyou for making this video.

This has’nt been only an interesting interview. It was a lifechanging, decisive experience…a deep digging inside Graham’s and our soul in the same time. Graham is a wise, very learned and open minded man and I’ve been reading his books since the very biginning. He’s a real great teacher…perhaps one of the most important teacher of our time.

Adam Mould

Brilliantly said sir. Totally agree.

A wonderful interview! Graham is a truly inspirational man in his willingness to fight against the rhetoric of the ‘establishment’. Actually, he may even render the word ‘established’ to the scrapheap of pointless words – as he shows there can be no permanence in our assumptions and believes, but a constant flux, which meanders around our questioning and attack of the dominant views. Thank you Graham, and of course London Real.

What a great interview. Each interview he seems like a gentle and wise human being who actually also listens. People like Graham beam as a Beacon of Bright Light displaying the good in humanity, including the human flaws that we so often try to hide in this charade. Love it!

Have you seen him in person? Hes an awesome man and Santha is awesome too!

Truly one of the most fascinating men alive today .. please make him a yearly guest ! What a thrill it would be to meet him in person. He’s wise beyond his years, historians will be writing about him 100yrs from now. Our whole society lives under mass mind control, slowly but surely people are waking up though … thank you Brian for being a huge part of this mass awakening. Peace to everyone at London Real, you’re all part of the awakening. Go visit Grandmother Ayahuasca and tell everyone about it… ! It’s a true life changer … &… Read more »

I truly appreciate being able to listen to an extremely interesting and profound conversation capable of transporting us into what really matters, to all of us as Human Beings… One question if someone reads this comment; at the end of the conversation Graham is asked “who he looks up to” and I can’t quite make out his answer, but it sounds like Dennis? Can someone fill in this ‘blank’ for me?

Alan Burton

I strongly suspect he means Dennis McKenna, but I could be wrong! that’s the only Dennis I’ve heard him talk about before. Perhaps Brian could chip in here…

Dennis McKenna is as much a part of their awakening as Terrance is. They’re brothers, and they took this journey, of rediscovering Old Wisdom, together. After Terrance’s death [way too soon :'( ] Dennis has continued their goal, of relearning Ancient Truths, and sharing that Truth, with our generation. Knowledge IS Power; It, if shared, wisely and with guidance, is Empowering to and for ALL who receive and comprehend It. In older, wiser cultures, this Revelation was performed by the Shamans [Wisemen and Wisewomen], for the betterment and strength of their societies. Selfish, greedy, power-hungry individuals and groups gradually, bit… Read more »

No matter how many times I listen to Graham Hancock, I am thrilled at what a rare bird he is. He has the goods – the perception we need and the passion to send it rippling out into the world. He is rallying us, but there is no place to go. No one calls us to any table. Can we sit around a campfire together? Put David Nutt next to Graham and have Brian be the facilitator for who shows up!

The war on consciousness, been happening since we crawled out of the sludge.

There’s the who are wanting to program people, people who don’t know they are being programmed, and people that are aware and do not want to be programmed.

Interesting times, never have there been so many people waking up on mass, wonder what the ruling classes will do about it. Probably something psychotic like they have done through out history.

Wankers.

Fascinating perspective from mr Hancock. Although I would love to know his opinion regarding the existence of Extraterrestrials.

Nash Potter
Member

Graham Hancock’s leading edge perspective and deductive capabilities has brought a powerful and profound perspective to our history as humans. Infused with his charisma and evident passion to discover truth, he naturally ignites an appreciation for the human mind and purpose. His philosophy tests the bounds of our perspective as a society, illuminating the potential of massive progression in social-economics, environmental values and societal ideologies.

Graham Hancock is by far the most Brightest Angel of our times. I live in a small town of India with poor Internet connection where even 360p need buffering time, but still just listening to his ideas is highly Illuminating and worth the wait. It becomes almost euphoric when he speaks so highly of people like Joe Rogan, Terence Mckenna, and Dennis Mckenna, For they are the brightest angels of our time.

Said so well – indeed, I wish Graham Hancock had more and more media coverage – his views and the work he has done and his manner of articulation are exemplary. So insightful his views!

What a beautiful experience, thank you for sharing this curious exchange between Brian and Graham. I am a long time fan of both Brian and Graham and as in previous encounters I feel refreshed and well overdue for a reset of my dogmas I hold emotionally as a scientist. I use cannabis sparingly and really relate to Grahams experience of abuse of the herb in my younger days. What an amazing time to be conscious and in love with curiosity.

Yes, a good session – things are moving his way and with time more,more evidence will come to light supporting his views about the great proto civilisation of antiquity and mans general antediluvian civilisation in particular. I can’t comment on the hallucinogenic stuff, other than to say his inference that cave art was performed with the artist in such a state or after having imbibed the required toxins is not likely in the vast majority of cases – why? People can just draw for pleasure in the non inebriated state, most artists do – yes some are ‘smashed’ now and… Read more »

Hey Brian and Graham, brilliant interview. I’m a big fan of Graham’s work and ideas. Around 42 min, Graham appears to suggest that a “technocracy” would be better for the world, although fortunately much of the interview is contrary to that idea and clarifies his perspective. I just wanted to clarify on the point of a technocracy mentioned, because it’s a tricky concept. I suggest looking into the book “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse Of Global Transformation” by Patrick Wood for a full discussion, but let me try to go to the point. Technocrats are already bossing us around. Look… Read more »

Notes as I watched: (not read his books) [0:6:00] Lost Ark – you’d think by now the church of Axum would have released a photograph. From a few snippets, the claimed resting place of the ark doesn’t let journo’s in! If it is true this is indeed central to the culture of Ethiopia then it would seem that the majority of people want or need to be told what to do. Much like the baby elephant that is tied to the ground with a rope it learns it cannot break free. As an adult, the slightest tug on a tether… Read more »
