Trust Mitch Waters to raise such an interesting point. The following clip entitled –
The Extended Mind: Recent Experimental Evidence provides interesting and persuasive evidence to support what Dr. Sheldrake is saying about our mind’s extending outside of our brains, being ‘field like’ so they can have an effect at a distance.
This is actually an amazing and incredibly important theory
“Dear humanity, let us listen to the real explanation of our powers so we can learn about them and start using them!”
This theory explains a lot of controversial phenomena like ‘telepathy’.
Believe it or not, there are interesting statistics on cats disappearing the day they were booked to go to the vet. In fact, Dr Sheldrake discovers most vets in London will not take appointments for cats.
Dr. Sheldrake argues our minds are ‘field like’ extending beyond the brain and having effect at a distance, just like magnetic fields extending beyond magnets and cell phone fields extending beyond our cell phones.
He uses various real and accepted phenomena to make this point and questions why this is not part of mainstream science. Significantly, this accords with ancient wisdom and makes sense of things like telepathy that modern science cannot explain.
For example, why can people feel when they are being looked at?
Don’t you think this is amazing?
Experiments like pairing people off, blindfolding one of them and then having them guess when the other is watching them have been completed 100,000’s of times and clearly show results way above chance.
The sense of being watched even applies to close circuit TV and is well known in security industries.
OK, now how about Telepathic Animals?
It is also fascinating to see that the statistical studies of the telepathic link between owners and animals dramatically outweigh chance, discussed from 23:08. In the experiments Mike discussed, dogs clearly responded to owners simply deciding to come home. Also, why do cats often disappear when they are due to go to the vet. Mr. Sheldrake actually called 65 vets in London. 64 said there was a clear phenomenon of cats disappearing and appointments being missed, and the other vet said they don’t even bother to make appointments for cats.
So why does our mainstream science refuse to acknowledge this?
At 1:19:10, Dr. Sheldrake talks about the taboo against society accepting this information. We think this is extremely important because people are being disempowered by this taboo.
“I submitted my work on the dogs knowing when their owners are coming home to the Journal of Animal Behaviour and got a letter back saying I am rejecting your paper immediately without refereeing because no referee for this journal would take seriously any claim that so-called telepathy actually existed.”
How unscientific to not even look at the evidence.
Are they scared that people will recognize their power?
We’d love to give some quick background on Dr. Rupert Sheldrake.
Double first class honors at Cambridge University and the University Botany Prize.
Check out his bio
He was a leading academic who went beyond and asked hard questions, like how come no proteins would have ever been made if the current random selection of amino acids is correct.
As Hobbsy pointed out in The Dreamworld, that’s a pretty basic thing to be so far wrong about, and we need people who understand the obvious flaws, to ask the questions. So thank you Dr. Sheldrake.
Banned TED Talk
We also highly recommend his banned TED talk. His arguments that science is deluded (which we strongly support btw) caused a controversy in the US but have a look at the TED talk and decide for yourself.
Here at ‘It’s Our Earth Too’ we talk about Dr Rupert Sheldrake a lot because his work is so important.
Showing people sensible concepts like ‘the extended mind’, as discussed above and ‘the morphogenetic fields’ (eg the 100 monkey effect), start to give humans a true inkling of our potential.
