Rupert Sheldrake

rupert sheldrakeIf you’ve ever had a dog who seemed to know when you were coming home, or ready to take a walk… or had a sense of someone in the process of contacting you, or staring at you… or wondered how fish swim in unison, monarch butterflies know the precise location in Mexico to reach in winter, and ant colonies use complex division of labor to build elaborate colonies — without language… Cambridge-educated biologist Rupert Sheldrake has a theory to explain it.

Unlike Newton’s gravitational field and Faraday’s electromagnetic field, we haven’t yet grasped the dimension of the morphic field, Sheldrake says — but some of us know it is there.

Telepathy, remote viewing, epigenetics, cell membranes that shape and adapt our behavior and health through signals — all might be better explained after we spend more time as a scientific body researching morphic resonance.

About the Guide

SheldrakeCoverE-guide #3 introduces in bite-sized nuggets and anecdotes Sheldrake’s premise that there is a morphic field that helps organisms sense and communicate and adapt its structure, generally unconsciously.

The guide focuses on the research and conclusions Dr. Sheldrake proposed particularly in his book The Sense of Being Stared At. He is author of numerous books, including Dogs Who Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home, and recent Scientific and Medical Book of the Year award-winning The Science Delusion/Science Set Free and much more.
