Publisher's Summary

This dialogue reviews Sheldrake's theory of "morphic resonance," which challenges some fundamental assumptions of established science. Sheldrake offers a revolutionary alternative to the mechanistic worldview, and points toward a new understanding of the nature of life, matter and mind. One of the more profound implications of Sheldrake's account here is his suggestion that the brain may be more like a tuning system than a recording device. Rupert Sheldrake studied natural sciences at Cambridge and philosophy at Harvard, took a Ph.D. in biochemistry at Cambridge and is the author of more than 50 scientific papers. He's the author of many books including The Presence of the Past (Times Books 1995), Seven Experiments That Could Change the World: A Do-It Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science (Riverhead Books 1995), A New Science of Life: The Hypothesis of Morphic Resonance (J.P. Tarcher 1995), The Rebirth of Nature; The Greening of Science and God (Bantam 1991), Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home: And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals (Three Rivers Press 2001), The Sense of Being Stared At: And Other Aspects of The Extended Mind (Crown 2003), and co-authored with Matthew Fox Natural Grace: Dialogues on Creation, Darkness, and the Soul in Spirituality and Science (Doubleday 1996) and The Physics of Angels: Exploring the Realm Where Science and Spirit Meet (HarperSanFrancisco 1996).

excellent introduction to morphic Resonance

this conversation is incredible. I also love doctor sheldrake's accent and how fluid and Casual he is when discussing these cosmically significant radical theories and the proof of them. I recommend this to everyone.

memories not stored in brain!

I loved it even though sometimes I was annoyed by the mouth noises from the narrator.
