Rupert Sheldrake, author of The Presence of the Past, talks about Morphic Resonance, telephone telepathy, email telepathy, and some of his online experiments. Ooh..he also has an interesting take on Dr. Emoto’s water crystal photographs.
Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world’s most innovative biologists, has revolutionized scientific thinking with his vision of a living, developing universe with its own inherent memory. He first worked in developmental biology and is best known for his theory of Morphic Fields and Morphic Resonance. His latest book, “The Sense of Being Stared at” develops his concept of the extended mind.
Kelly and Rupert Sheldrake discuss morphic fields and morphic resonance, reincarnation, animal behavior, and even using morphic fields to change your own behavior.
Rupert believes that morphic fields give structure to matter, just like a blueprint. Therefore morphic fields can account for interesting phenomena like the 100th monkey theory, which says that when a certain number of monkeys learn a new behavior, many monkeys begin to exhibit that behavior. Since the 100th monkey theory is undocumented, Rupert prefers the “1000th rat” theory, which is well documented.
If you want to change a behavior or habit, the podcast offers the idea that you could tune into the morphic field of the behavior you want to develop. As long as other people have this behavior, the morphic field exists, and you can tune into it.
