    Default Videos and Podcasts for Seekers

    Let's share some educational and inspirational videos and podcasts.

    What interests you? Science, philosophy, spirituality, money, self-help, documentaries, psychology, relationships, paranormal, etc.

    It's a lot harder to find valuable videos and podcasts that you can watch or listen to for free online than it is to find valuable written information online. However, there are still plenty of valuable of videos and podcasts online, and the purpose of this thread is to share them with other people. I enjoy reading, but there's a certain kind of enjoyment that comes from being able to just sit back and absorb information in a more passive way. I think it gives me more freedom to ponder and think for myself. Click, relax, and learn.

    This thread is not for comedy and music. Other than that, it doesn't really matter what it's about it or where it's from, just share it if you liked it. And of course, it will also be fun to discuss the content shared in this thread.

    I like to go to Google Video and search for videos on things I want to learn about that have a duration of 20 minutes or longer. You can really find some fascinating stuff this way.

    The Amazing World Of Psychic Phenomena. 1 hour and 31 minutes long. This is very cool documentary on all kinds of paranormal things. Itís kind of old, but who cares?


    The Strangest Secret in the World. 31 minutes long. This is a timeless classic, originally recorded in the 50s. I guess you could call it self-help. I liked it. Even though we may already know some things, it's nice to be reminded of them again.


    Byron Katie - I Thought You were Supposed to Love Me 1 hour and 1 minute long. The annoying sound at the beginning ends quickly. This is a fascinating video that really makes you think about the way we think. It really gets in your head. Byron Katie rips this guy up, in a good way. Watch all the false conceptions crumble around him. The video gets really interesting once the man starts talking about 5 minutes in.
