THE KNOWLEDGE ILLUSION December 01, 2019

TEDxYouth@PPSIJC

What does it really take to fulfil the criteria of being categorised as knowledgeable? Do you think you are knowledgeable enough? ‘Expert’ enough?

Quite interestingly, we are trapped in our inherent, dogmatic beliefs which revolve around the stated notions of the ways in which knowledge can be acquired, possessed, and demonstrated. Even on that one fine day, when a new, completely undiscovered horizon populates itself in front of us, we turn a blind eye towards it, since our eyelids are controlled by mankind’s old friends: fear and security. We succumb to our need to be safe, at the cost of a manifestation which could potentially help us feel safer. And it is this fear of being unconventional and ‘crazy’, that we hope to spread awareness about. See you there!

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@PPSIJC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@PPSIJC event, TED Talks, videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
